I picked up The Irish Devil by Donna Fletcher at a great price at my UBS yesterday, so I might read that today.

I finished Kade: Armed and Dangerous by Cheyenne McCray.  It was just eh.  I didn't like it nearly as much as the first two.  Unfortunately I have the next one already on my shelf, so I guess I'll pick that up next just to be done.

I keep wanting to start Opal Carew's Total Abandon since I finished off my other book on Thursday evening.  Just haven't had any time at all.

Loved that book - when I finished it I really wished I didn't have to mail it out to another member. It would have gone straight to my keeper shelf. Let us know what you think of it, Keri.

Tried getting into 5 books so far today and nothing is grabbing me. Too much on my mind - I'm soo debating retiring by the end of the year instead of waiting til 6/30/2012, the end of my employer's fiscal year.

The office move on Friday was a big stress, don't even want to 'think' about it much less write about it. I'm having problems setting up my Nook. The night I bought it I had a fender bender in the BN parking lot (she damaged my left front wheel), been without a car almost 2 weeks now (have a rental) but it's been all this & that with insurance company, auto body, etc. I should NEVER have tried activating the reader, though I thought I was psyched enough for it. Waited this long to do it, so I'd be in a better frame of mind today. Not.

Now I just want to return it. They have a users' group every Tuesday so I think I'll run up there and see if anyone can help me. So frustrating, I'm not much of a techie so I should have known better than to buy one.

Thanks for listening, didn't mean to rant, but now I can't even get into a BOOK. How lame is that? Back to the bookcase - maybe I should try a keeper, something already known to me, something I don't have to think about very much.

Just finishing the 3rd book in the

Mariah Stewart  Cheaspeake Series

Coming Home

Home Again

Almost Home

I love reading books that are set in Maryland.  I can picture the Eastern Shore and other areas as I read the stories.

I have one book left for the RT challenge but I'm thinking of reading Lorraine Heath for that and I don't think it's a light and happy book so I may put it off since I'm needing something lighter....may go see winnie the pooh at the 1.50 movie then come home and work on my quilting some more! I start night shift tomorrow and still ahven't adjusted. ate a big dim sum with a friend and now really want a friggin' nap!

My favorite Chesapeake set books so [far] are Nora Roberts' trilogy + one. I read the four of them back to back.

One of the strangest Chesapeake books I've ever read (well, listened to) was Patricia Cornwell's ISLE OF DOGS. That was one bizarre read - not a romance by any stretch but I thought it would be interesting/tongue in cheek but it was just plain weird. Unfortunately it was part of a trilogy and when I tried reading the first book it was even stranger.

I have a few Mariah Stewart books but not sure if I have those. I'll have to check w/the library. I like that setting, too. Visited that area some years ago - very beautiful country and I love books set on/around the water.

I am reading and whole heartedly loving India Black and the Widow of Windsor, it is even better than the first book.  I know that it isn't really a romance but in my opinion it is one of those books that slide between genres.

Been busy, so mostly listening to A Discovery of Witches. Getting fairly close to the end, which suprises me because things are just getting more and more complicated! Also have a meh HP to finish.

Started Brenda Hiatt's SCANDALOUS VIRTUE. Have made it to Chapter 3 which is a good sign. It's o.k., keeping my interest so far. Wasn't really in the mood for a big book but while pulling some books to delete from my PBS bookshelf I landed on this one and thought I'd give it a try. I think I've read just one other of her books but can't remember if I loved it or just liked it.

Just finished  NO PLACE TO RUN by Maya Banks. Her books have been hit or miss for me, but I'm loving this KGI series. Nice, lazy afternoon read.

Halfway through Can't Hurry Love by Christie Ridgway.  I like it better than the first of the series, but not sure if it's better than the 2nd one.  I'm a little annoyed with the heroine and how she keeps going hot/cold on the hero.  I'm almost liking the secondary romance better than the primary one.

I am 1/2 way through The Irish Devil and I am loving this book, although I would like to knock Eric upside the head a couple times. Thanks for the recommend way back when Sherri. :-)

I almost Did Not Finish Feehan's Dark Predator - he was ice and dark and a hunter - gag. So much repetition. I skipped through it to see if she forwarded the overall story line - but not so much. I don't think I really care anymore.

I stopped reading Feehan - it just seemed as though it was the same story over and over again.

I finished Pleasure Unbound (Larissa Ione) and am looking forward to starting the second in the series - Desire Unchained.  It's fun to find a series that has already been going on for a while.  I have all five to read!

I spent the day reading Total Abandon.  VERY hot, nearly as good as Six.  I think this one might stay on my keeper shelf.

Now I have to decide what to read next.

I've been eating and sewing so haven't started a new book yet - maybe when I go to sleep in the morning...

Finished The Irish Devil and it was a really great read! Is Irish Hope just as good? I am dying to read Colin's story.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through Never Enough by Lauren Dane, and so far it's been super good. I'm just waiting for the "big misunderstanding" though, because there has been a heck of a setup for it so far.
