Dear readers,

 

I got a surprise tonight. Did you know that it's been 1 year this month since I started the MM readers' blog? Thank you to everyone who participated. We all benefit from your sharing of ideas and joy.

The questions this month are...

 

What are you reading?

How is it going to help your love life?

 

This month I've chosen, Split-Second Persuasion: The Ancient Art and New Science of Changing Minds by Kevin Dutton, PhD  (2010, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). I'm not sure how it will change my love life yet, but perhaps it will give me some good tips on communication approaches. Maybe that will help me when I find the man of my dreams. ;-D

 

Last month I was reading The 6 Husbands Every Woman Should Have. I finished it recently and was enlightened a bit about a few things I never thought about. It was really a book about how there are 6 life-stages we all go through which causes us to make sometimes drastic changes in our lives and personality. Unfortunately I've never gotten beyond Husband 3... or that is stage 3, with any man. Here are the stages in my simplified words:

 

Stage 1: New love (effects only last 18 months)

Stage 2:  The new baby (or new pet or hobby or sport)--where did the sex go?

Stage 3:   Career over me?--Married to the job

Stage 4:  The empty nest stage--kids are gone. Where is the person I married?

Stage 5:  Retirement--there's a stranger in my bed.

Stage 6:  Friends and companions--BFF

 

Basically, the book says we are not supposed to stay the same person. We all should be changing through each stage. Effort must be made to keep the relationship together. Grownups understand this. Grownups find a way to adapt, and they don't bail. That is love.

 

So there you go.

 

Tell us about your books.

BeWell

bepositive – I only just now found out about Sue Grafton, so no I did not know she had puzzles.  Thanks for the information.

Just read Sue Graftton's A is for Alibi and also B is for Burglar.  Lots of fun.  Not good for anything else.  It is a mystery series, female private eye.  Series started in 1982 and goes up to V. 

 

 

Nice diversion from anything useful or serious.

Hey Mac,

Did you know there are also Sue Graftons puzzles??  My grandkids got turned on to them.  You put them together and then solve the mystery......pretty cool and lots of fun.  I have completed a few myself.   I love her series!!
