Still on Sweet Tooth. Not too far into it, but so far I like it, but don't know where it's headed.

A Game of Thrones. How unlike me to read this!

P.S. To MusicalFruit . . . I haven't read The Bell Jar since college (way long ago). May I ask if you are reading it for school or what prompted your interest in Sylvia Plath?

Hi, I'm new, but I can't resist a book thread! I'm reading Casa de los Espiritus (House of the Spirits) by Isabel Allende. I'm trying to brush back up on my Spanish.

I didn't have time to read what I wanted last month. This month, I plan on reading the rest of Elphame's Choice and read Brighid's Quest.

Last month I managed to finish 5 novels. (Yay, my New Year's resolution was to read more, and I'd say 5 in January is a good start!)

Right now I'm reading the book of Genesis. I'd like to read through the whole Bible in a year.

One for every five pounds lost!

Mini Goals:
No longer obese – achieved 10/12/12
, 20 pounds down and pedicure reward – achieved 11/16/12, 40 pounds down and facial reward – achieved 2/22/13, No longer overweight - achieved 4/12/13, 60 pounds down and full body massage reward

Just finished Perfect by Ellen Hopkins. It made me cry; it was so beautiful! Haven't decided what I'm going to read next -- another one of hers or if I wanna do another children's classic or go in a completely different direction. Hmm.
5lbs ~5 times? Let's do it! One for every 5lbs lost until I get to where I wanna be.

Starting weight: 209 (2/20/16)
Current weight: 184 (4/24/17)
Goal weight: Somewhere between 155-165lbs

Currently reading 2 books. "The End of Diabetes" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, trying to understand my hubby's disease so hopefully we can get him off the large number of meds he is on.
"But I Trusted You" by Ann Rule. I love true crime. Ann is one of my most favorite authors, so I picked up 2 of her books that I missed.
Newly updated for 2016!! Starting at 255. 220 lbs. by July 4th. 205 lbs. by Sept. 2, when I see my dr. again. 195 lbs. by Nov. 8, my 52nd birthday. 185 for New Year's 2017!!

4th of July Goal

Still working on An Irish Country Doctor from last month. I got sidetracked by a book about the Nuremberg trials and haven't gotten back to it yet. Definitely going to finish it this month!

I finished I Capture the Castle - which is spectacular, totally recommend it, especially if you like, say, Jane Austen. I mean, it is not Austen-like in any way, but there's a certain spirit knotted in there that I think Austen-lovers would love.

Now I'm reading Watergate by Thomas Mallion, which is a novelization of the Watergate scandal.
