Recent (and also in the not too distant future) Books You Must Read:
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain (who just happens to be my cousin). It's coming out just in time for Christmas stocking stuffers for those of you who've been particularly good this year. You can read a sneak peek here, her publisher even sprang for Dark Divine nail polish color - fabulous marketing, I say.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and its sequel, Catching Fire (so we can dish about it)
The New Weightlifting Rules for Women - interesting concepts and quite effective once you figure out how to do it - I'd love to rewrite the entire section that describes the workout. I think the editor should have actually had this section tested for usability by novice lifters.
Time for a reread:
A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle
Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L'Engle
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Books I could write:
Maneuvering the Mine-field of Special Education or What the Devil is an IEP, Anyway?
No is a Four-Letter Word
Lemons and Lemonade - or Why Sugar is Essential
