Funny--I'm in Washington too! I just finished listening to the first disk of French Women don't get Fat. Like...I'm not going to spend a weekend drinking leek soup, BUT I really appreciate the *approach* to food, eating, etc. that seems to be the main theme so far.
I downloaded the book from audible--man, that is a great thing if you like books on tape
They're having a sale right now too with big discounts on some books so I stocked up on some of the No. 1 Lady Detective titles since they're only $7! I quilt a lot (like tonight) and I like listening to books on tape then. I usually find that I'm MUCH more relaxed when I crawl into bed on these nights (or when I read) compared to the nights when I have the tv on (but...there are just some shows I won't give up!).
Gosh, I don't even get the excuse of kids and I STILL hate doing laundry
