A Good Book


I seem to have a little more time on my hands for reading. Anyone have a good book they can recommend me? I am taking all suggestions...I am fresh out of book ideas. Thank you and good-day.
P.S. I am actually taking all suggestions for things to do while laying down. Any old classic movies to recommend or other ideas of interest?

Have you ever considered piracy? I'm just saying that I loved Goldman's The Princess Bride, but I suspect that you've already read it.

I was just assuming that you wanted fiction, but maybe a nonfiction narrativve is in order, why not try Reading Lolita in Tehran; it is exciting and insightful and "today": I really enjoyed it.

Oh my dearest Ty. My wife doesn't read what we call fiction. She's got a soft spot for Jane Eyre, but that itself is a fluke. The only other fiction that she's read is the Bible...gocha.

On a different note,I was trying to figure out what the picture was on this post before I read it. I thought my wife said she was hard.

Wuz up?

RLiT is a good suggestion. If you buy it, I will come borrow it. It's a real story. Not fake.


Oooohhhh. is that what that means? I thought it was "I'm 2 X 4."

yours makes much more sense.
Jess---- looking up fake cartoon porn is not the direction I think you should take....

arwen said...

oh- and ... not to push Starmoney products on you, but..... A Long Way Gone is supposed to be really good. You will think its sad, but..... i think you could like it too.

im reading "velvet elvis" right now...it is very thought provoking, in the spiritual sense...so only read it of you love god and are wanting a little bit of a challenge. its good and im not even done with it.

tara said...

dear nerds, i am pretty sure that the cartoon is saying "im bored". im the smartest ever and i didnt even go to colidge.

Jess said...

Thanks for all the suggestions. I actually just got an interesting book from the library via the internet about maintaining a house without chemicals and such. I don't think it will take long to go throught it so I will need another book soon.

Tara I have actually read Velvet Elvis twice now. Once on my own and once with my home community.It is one of my new favorite books and probably one I will read again. It has so much to soak in that I couldn't process all of it in a single reading.

I wrote Velvet Elvis

How about a little origami? Some cranes and paper cups?

Jen said...

You could write a book!

Jen said...

Can you use a glue gun while lying down?

Jen said...

Can you pose in the nude? I'm about to be up there, camera and all!

Separate thought... If you can move around later without going into labor we should take pregnant pictures of you. It's not like you're doing this again!

Jen said...

Sometimes I accidentally imagine you at your old house. Sorry.

Not all the time though.

Jess said...

Oh, Prego pictures....I like that idea. Lets do that when you get here. Which I think is like next week or something.

I have a really good book called "Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling" by Ross King. It's about the events leading up to and just after the design and construction of the Sistine Chapel. Ross King was a novelist for years before he became a historical writer so while it's a non-fiction book, it's a really fun read: I wouldn't call it a historical novel, but it's not dry like a textbook. I can bring it on Thursday if you want.

Also, I think I mentioned this, but Gina and I will pledge you one of our three slots on NetFlix, so if you want to browse the site and let me know what films you want, I'll add them to my list and bring them over for you. If you have never been on NetFlix.Com, the have freakin' EVERYTHING!

i concur with ty . . . the princess bride is PERFECT. i own it if you'd like to borrow it. i also have the never ending story. shoot, if you promise that you are good at borrowing books and will return them to me before i leave, i'll just bring over a whole bunch of them for ya.

tabitha jane said...

Rizzle said...

You bring your paints and I'll bring my camera.
