I'm reading "A Question of Love" by Isabel Wolff. I tend to really like her books, but sometimes get annoyed by just how (predictably) perfect they are. Still, I think she's a step up from some other chick lit writers. And in the car, I'm listening to Maureen O'Dowd's audio book, oh darn, I just forgot the title, it's just something like "Just What Are Men Good For, Anyway?" (that's not the exact title, I just can't remember it, but it's very funny already.)

I'm reading Flirting with Forty by Jane Porter. I love her books, and only recently realized I had this one and had never read it!

I just started reading The Blue Bistro by Elin Hilderbrand. It seems like a good set up so far.

I just made some peanut butter and chocolate drizzled popcorn and am going to start "Group" by Paul Solotaroff (I may not be spelling his last name right). I just finished "Eleanor Rigby" by Douglas Coupland. He's someone I really, really want to like, but most times I really, really don't "get" him. I do have "Room" on my TBR!

I finished Girl Most Likely To....it was okay-- I've read better books but I've read worse ones.  Now I am reading Reinventing Mona by Jennifer Coburn. I've only read 1 chapter though so not sure if it will be any good yet.

Just finished A Model Summer by Paulina Porizkova and now I'm on to The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews (which will surely be a lighter read - a.k.a. More Fun!!).

I don't know why I always forget Laurie Graff when thinking about favorite authors. Right now I'm reading "The Shiksa Syndrome" (on Passover, too!) and she is so where it's at. I was 100% in love with her other books too. I wish she wrote MORE. She's definitely in the club of "whatever they put out, I will order or WL it, I don't even have to read the blurb." And in the car I'm listening to "Bait and Switch" by Barbara Ehrenreich.

Just finished "The Fixer Upper" by Mary Kay Andrews - loved it!!  And now I'm thrilled to delve into Hester Browne's newest:  Swept Off Her Feet.  Seems like forever since Hester, one of my all time favorite British Chick-lit authors, put out a new book!  

Btw Heather, thanks for the tip on Laurie Graff.  I'm not familiar with her work but I'll definitely check it out!
