I finished reading Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs (look for my review later in the week) and The 3-Day Solution Plan by Laurel Mellin. Laurel commented on last week’s It’s Monday post (how cool is that?) and suggested that I might find her newer book, Wired for Joy, less of a struggle because the program is easier and more powerful. I did get some important results from The 3-Day Solution Plan, so I am open to more ideas from that front. That’s two books down on my resolution to read 34 books this year that support my healthy lifestyle.
I read and reviewed two books last week, Eating Well for a Healthy Heart Cookbook for Weekend Cooking and an advance start on American Heart Month and The Story of Doctor Dolittle for Hugh Loftings birthday. I also posted a review of a young adult novel I read in December, A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend.
I am continuing to read The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. I had hoped I might have it ready for a review today as an observance of Martin Luther King Day, but I’m only about half way through. It’s a good thing my book club doesn’t meet until next week. The book is about the Great Migration of blacks from the south to the north and west of the US and it’s proving to be an illuminating look at American history. It’s also a good read.
I mentioned last week that I was reading Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill on my iPad in anticipation of an on-line book club. But I don’t think I picked it up all week. Obviously, I need to work on developing some habits that would get me to read e-books.
