blessing number eighteen and nineteen: a good book and time to read them

a good book is not always easy to find so i am very appreciative when i do find one!  right now i am readying chelsea handlers new book chelsea chelsea bang bang, it is her third and possibly funniest books!  yesterday was slow at work so i was reading it and hekka laughing...my co-worker came over telling me i looked crazy standing there alone laughing but i didnt care, i tried to explain what was happening in the book and ended up laughing so hard i was crying!



it is great when a book can bring out such emotion like this! i am also in the middle of reading the immortal life of Henrietta Lacks, another great book but for different reasons.  this one is the moving story of a womans cells being taken and used in dozen of scientific discoveries without her family even knowing what a difference they were making. 

a great book can brighten a day....here are a few of my favorites...

tuesdays with morrie by mitch albom
a million little pieces by james frey
700 sundays by billy crystal
the five people you meet in heaven by mitch albom
have a little faith by mitch albom
of mice and men by john steinbeck
the immortal life of henrietta lacks by rebecca skloot
all of chelsea handlers books (my horizontal life, are you there vodka its me chelsea, chelsea chelsea bang bang)
