A great book

I just have to plug this book I found at Barnes & Noble the other day while out with Sam.  It is a children's book but I love it so much I may have to purchase it for myself.  Here it is


It is the story of Harriet Tubman and is so beautifully written as well as illustrated.  I love how the author wrote the story in two part dialog between Harriet and God.  This book is just moving, plain and simple.  It's incredibly inspiring and I think everyone should read it!  :)

As for other books... the grown up kind, lately I've read these:

The Life of Pi

The Tapestry (really good)

Emancipating Elias (written and recently published by a friend!)

Big Stone Gap... this baby I couldn't even stop reading to put make-up on!  I literally had the book in the bathroom  trying to read and do make-up at the same time.  That could really spell disaster if extreme caution is not taken!  LOL!

We went to Zoolights last night since Sam has wanted to go for a month.  I think we were all a little disappointed and Oh my Gosh, the crowd was unbelievable!  We waited about a half hour just to get inside the zoo!  I'm thinkin' we won't do it again!

I woke in the middle of the night with one of my bad headaches.  I've had very little sleep and now that I have eaten breakfast, it's time for the major headache drugs since the OTC stuff didn't work.  Then, I have to drive Sam out to my mom's for his turn spending the night.  I swear my kids would move in with my mom without looking back.  Anyway, I'll have Max by himself this afternoon so at least there won't be any tattle-telling or fighting going on!
