New Month, New Reads! What are you reading?

I'm reading The Weigh Loss Diaries by Courtney Rubin. Good read so far!

I'm reading The China Study, I forget who it's by but I've been wanting to read it forever and can't get a copy from the library because so many others want to also. I finally bought it and just started it yesterday. After that, schoolbooks will be my reading of choice for the month!

Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):

'Shrink Yourself' by Dr Gould. I like 'pun-ny' titles. I'm only a few chapters into it but its been very helpful so far. Its written to help the emotional eater identify and work though issues that cause me overeat. I feel very pro-active, because I don't feel I will lose or keep of weight without dealing with the reasons that I overeat in the first place.

I just finished Rob Sheffield's Talking to Girls About Duran Duran and I loved it. His Love is a Mix Tape is in my top 10 books of all time (and if you know how many books I have read, it's pretty impressive to make the top 10).

I'm reading 'Three Cups of Tea' - Greg Mortenson, Precious - Sapphire (good but disturbing book, I didn't see the movie, I wanted to read the book first lol), and 'Ender's Game' - Orson Scott Card. It's a pretty interesting book. My cousin named his son Ender because of this book, so I had to get it and read it!
Main Goal: 155 by October 20, 2014!!!

I'm rereading the Harry Potter series. I'm hoping to have it finished next week, then I have Tsar by Ted Bell. From wizards and magic to espionage and adventure! lol

I just finished "Girl who kicked a Hornet's nest" - 3rd book in the "Millennium" Series. The first book, "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", got me hooked and I just had to finish all 3 books. There are definitely some disturbing parts but overall a really good read.
