Before you do anything else in your life, I mean, anything, please go buy this book:

Once you purchase the book, pour yourself a glass of wine, make a little cheese plate and sit yourself in a comfy chair.  Because you are going to be there for awhile. Until you finish the book-while.

I started this book (audio version) last week. I have listened to it every time I was in the car.  I listened while in the bathtub, at the duck pond for lunch, in my bed with the soccer game playing in the background.

When I wasn't listening to it, I was thinking about it.  I was looking up reviews on line and reading about it.  I was totally 100% obsessing about it.

It's listed as a romance, but that's not really accurate.  It's something else completely.  Although this little snippet, "partner-ignoring compulsive" is 100% spot on.  Honestly people --- it is one of the best books I've ever read.

Today, I finished the book on my trip to Columbia.  I bawled the entire 90 miles to Columbia.  I want to hug Louisa.  I want to eat dinner at her house.   I still feel it as I sit there typing this.  This is one that will stay with me. 

What are you doing reading this silly blog?  Get thee to a bookstore.  You'll thank me later.

Just finished my third book in the last week yesterday. Needed another one. Thanks for the recommendation. It's heading to the ol' kindle...

Wow, that's quite a recommendation! I've never even heard of these books or this author.

I'm just finishing "50 Shades of Grey"--NOT!!!!!

I love books that stay with you! Those are the ones you just don't want to end!
