Quoting rmac22:

BeWell – Thank you for these two blogs.  Your blogs have opened up for me a new set of interesting authors to explore.  I won’t likely read the “Fifty Shades of Grey” though. 

 

 By the way, “A Murder is Announced,” by Agatha Christie was lots of fun.  Total surprise on the guilty party.  Not a Hurcule Poirot book, although Miss Jane Marple does make an appearance. 

 

 

RMac



rmac,

You're welcome. Happy to hear the Agatha Christie book was fun for you. I'm not surprised that you won't be reading 50 Shades. ;-D I'm not so sure I will end up doing it either, but like Apexoflife, I've been told I need to get into the 21st century too. Ha! So I'm going to investigate it first.

 

I'm still reading Imagine and enjoying the stories about how so many products came into being. Seems like those with a good story end up being the best inventions. Kind of like love relationships. Ha! I guess a little magic is attached to the best things.

 

Will have lots of time to read on the train today as I travel to see my grandson ........ BeWell

 

 



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D

Getting ready to curl up with yet another book. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Has anyone read it yet?

Well, since almost everyone who responded to this blog either has read or is reading 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, and my last date asked if I've read it yet, maybe that should be my next read.

Tsabiero, Apexoflife, Denise013, QuietStorm2193 and ForeverClassy, you all have me intrigued. I haven't read anything about it so I'm sure it will be a surprise. I don't normally read novels so this will be novel to me in many ways. Ha! I'll be out of town for a while watching my 4 month old grandson while my daughter is on vacation so it will be a perfect time to get some recreational reading done.

Right now I'm half way through Imagine: How Creativity Works. Very good marketing book and I thank rmac for the suggestion. Maybe I will learn how to jumpstart my creativity again. ;-D................. BeWell

I too read all three Fifty Shades in less than two weeks. It was not something I normally read but was told I needed to get into this century?

Yes, the book was not written well and there was a great deal of repetition along with being drawn out but yet I did read all three. The only thing that draws me to Christian Grey is his unfailing love and his desire to care for Ana in all ways. (I don’t think I would be a huge fan of being spanked.)

Easy read and can certainly get one in the "mood", after a few short pages. lol

Quoting QuietStorm2193:

Reading the  Fifty  Shades of Grey Trilogy.. Again Why am I so completely drawn to Christian Grey, CEO, Grey Enterprise Holdings? Ok.. I will admit, the book has flaws and the writing was nothing spectacular  but truthfully I am fascinated by his character. What does that say about me? :-)

Just finished reading the last book of Fifty Shades and I can understand why anyone would be drawn to Christian Grey, CEO, Grey Enterprise Holdings.. I myself am drawn to him! 

 

I will have to check out Quirkology: How We Discover the Big Truths in Small Things by Richard Wiseman, PhD. Sounds very interesting!

Quoting Forever_Classy:

BeWell, the library did find the book for me so now have it in my possession.  While browsing at the library I found this little gem of a book called Feel The Fear...and Do It Anyway, about dynamic techniques for turning fear, indecision and anger into power, action, and love, written by Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.  It has been years since I have read books on personal empowerment.  Somehow this little 200 page book was calling for me to read it.  So couldn't resist it.  Now I have two books to read.... 

 

I have read seven chapters of Quirkology, it is definitely filled with many interesting and fun stories.



Forever,

I'm very familiar with Feel the Fear. Excellent book and it will change your life forever. I read it many years ago, and probably should read it again. ;-D I used to also have the audio version, but it has disappeared. Have fun bouncing back between the two books and have fun on your trip......BeWell



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D

Right now I am reading, "Ä Murder Is Announced," by Agatha Christie.  No deep significance.

Quoting Forever_Classy:

BeWell, that sounds like quite an interesting book.  I started reading 50 Shades of Grey and just can't pick it up to finish it.  I am not in the mood to read romance but this definitely sounds like a person could gain insight about behaviour which could be very educational.  I will be travelling soon to Eastern Canada to a family reunion so this book sounds like good reading on the flight.  I read the reviews on this book and it is quite a mixed bag.  The only way to know is to read it myself. 

 

Thanks!



Forever_Classy,

Hope you can find the book. I found it at the library. Easy read. I think you'll really enjoy it. It's fun and lots of amazing quirky things to learn. FYI... IMO Reviews are like beauty, they're in the eye of the beholder. It's not important stuff the author studied, just crazy, silly things. Reviewers are too serious. That's my professional opinion as a book publicist. Ha!

 

Have a fabulous trip to Eastern Canada and have fun reuniting with family................ BeWell



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D
