It has just been brought to my attention that...

The book I chose is completely inappropriate. I knew there might be some "scenes" but there are more than some and apparently they are "SCENES". So we will be switching to the other book that I was thinking about doing for this month. It is called "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein.

If you've ever wondered what your dog is thinking, Stein's third novel offers an answer. Enzo is a lab terrier mix plucked from a farm outside Seattle to ride shotgun with race car driver Denny Swift as he pursues success on the track and off. Denny meets and marries Eve, has a daughter, Zoƫ, and risks his savings and his life to make it on the professional racing circuit. Enzo, frustrated by his inability to speak and his lack of opposable thumbs, watches Denny's old racing videos, coins koanlike aphorisms that apply to both driving and life, and hopes for the day when his life as a dog will be over and he can be reborn a man. When Denny hits an extended rough patch, Enzo remains his most steadfast if silent supporter.

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake

I finally decided on reading this book. So hopefully we will all enjoy it. Here is a little description:

A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen's club.

Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she's vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she's been missing.

But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.

If she's not careful, she'll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love . . .

Scared by a book? Me? No......

So, I'm listening to this book last night in bed cause I was having trouble trying to fall asleep. ANYWAY, I got so scared that I was afraid to get out of bed to go to the bathroom! Well, I finally got over that but when I got back in bed, I had to snuggle up close to Russell and make sure every part of me was covered up by my blankets. Lol!
Anyway, it's pretty good, and really creepy (at least last night it was ;)
You should check it out.
Oh yeah, MAJOR cliff-hanger ending. I would get book 2 when you get book 1, just to save you a trip.
