Day 3 — Your favorite book –

Lately I’ve been into the murder mysteries. I used to read all the romance novels; but that got stale. Ya know, girl meets boy, they split up, and then they get back together… blah, blah, blah… Maybe I finally I figured out that real life just wasn’t like that.

I really like the all the Scarpetta mysteries by Patricia Cornwell and think I’ve read most of them. Another fun series is the Stephanie Plum mysteries by Janet Evonovich; they are up to number fifteen! I think this series would make a great made for TV series! I even have some of the actors selected! I did read recently that they are doing a movie with Katherine Heigl in the lead – I think Sandra Bullock would have been a better pick. Guess we shall have to wait and see…

I get my books from my mom, her community library at her senior center, or from friends. Not to mention I do a great deal of my reading online. Where do you get your books? Do you ever buy any? If so – do you buy online from Amazon or do you do the actual bookstore thing? I like going to the bookstore and browsing with a cup of java. My library; the Clinton-Macomb Library was built in 2003 and is the largest library in Macomb County! I could spend an afternoon there!

I’ve done some of the self-help books. Like “He’s Just Not That Into You”by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. It was good for a laugh, but seriously I think most of that advice you already know, you just need to read it over and over so it will sink in! hahaha… The last one I actually bought after a recent string of bad luck with men was Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. Again, it was more common sense laid out in a very humorous way.

Of course I read tons of design publications, magazines, blogs etc… that’s how I keep up.
Some of my favorite magazines are Interior Design, Dwell and Contract Design. Some of the fashion mags I like are Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar; these keep me up to date on the latest trends in colors and patterns and styles.

The blogs I read run the gambit from interior design to graphics to home and family.  One of my favs is written by a gal that calls herself The Pioneer Woman. She writes about family, photojournalism, cooking and fashion! Plus she lives in Oklahoma with a cowboy hubby she calls her Marlboro Man! I think I’ve already gone over my love of cowboys-right? Oh ok, ok… I won’t bore you with any more cowboy stuff – at least not on this post! Muhahahah…
