*Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons*

I officially have a new favorite book and this is it. The librarian at Ms. R's school suggested this book to me the other day as we were working the book fair together. Considering she's also the person who told me to read "Lost Boys", I was a wee bit skeptical. However, a long drive up to Illinois for my cousin Kari's wedding reception was on the horizon; so I gave in, requested the audiobook from my library and set to listening to it in Arkansas. I laughed, I cried (not so much of a good idea when you're driving, by the way), I listened intently, I felt for the ladies, I yearned to be their friend, I heard so many good lines I wanted to quote I'll have to go out and buy this book ... it was so touching and wonderful. This book made the hours of driving fly by. I'm still not sure which lady I love the most. All I know is the author wrote me into thier lives and I felt thier pain, thier joy, thier triumphs. What an awesome book.

Hey Krista,
I may have to try out some of your book selections....I'm always looking for new stuff to read (especially if I can get them on audio books, 'cause I listen while I'm working in the yard or on art.)

Could you let me know if are able to view my blog right now? I can view it fine, but my dad said that he is having problems with it. I'm on a mac, so I don't know if it would be different on a windows OS....trying to figure out if it's me or them with the problem!
