Listened to Killing Patton by Bill O' Reilley.   Very interesting book, lots of history that is related to WW2, not just Patton.  A must read for history buff.

Comment by Janet/MO on Friday

I finished "Mrs. Kennedy and Me" at 1:00 this morning.  Very interesting book and of course very sad at the end.  Just shows how quickly one's life can change.  I'm going to go back & finish "Five Days in November" although quite a bit of it will be repetitious.

I am reading a series of 3 books written by a man named Clint Hill.  I saw him in an interview on Lawrence O'Donnell's show on MSNBC & knew right away I was going to have to read these books.  He was a Secret Service agent for 5 presidents starting with Eisenhower.  He was assigned to Jackie Kennedy so his 1st book was about that entitled "Mrs. Kennedy and Me".  He then wrote a book called "5 Days in November" and his last book is called "5 Presidents".  He is the agent who jumped on the back of the car on that horrible day when Pres Kennedy was shot.  He was so devastated it took him 50 years after that event to be able to write about his experiences. I started to read "5 Days in November" first, but then realized the one about his relationship with Jackie Kennedy took place first so now I'm reading that one & will finish the other one next.  Even if you were not a fan of the Kennedys, I think you would find these books to be fascinating to read.  I met a former Secret Service agent when I lived in Las Vegas, who was one of the men who watched over Jimmy Carter.  His wife belonged to the same quilt guild I did. He couldn't talk about it much, but he said it was a job like no other.

Vilma, I have read Last Lecture too.  I enjoyed it but think it's probably a book that you get something different out of with each reading, so I'll read it again sometime.  I agree about the Janet Evanovich books.  Lots of people love them, so I gave One for the Money a try.  I found the language objectionable and unnecessary - felt like it was for shock value or something and wasn't thrilled with the plot anyway so didn't continue with the series either.  I'm currently reading The Daddy Pact by Kristy James.  A man is murdered during a robbery.  The killer's brother wants to help the victim's pregnant wife.  Thinking it is going to be pretty "predictable" but nice entertaining light reading.

I just finished listening The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, non fiction, he is a professor and died of cancer and this is his last lecture.  Very interesting and Defending Baltimore Against Enemy Attack by Charles Osgood,  non fiction.  I love watching him on CBS Sunday Morning News on TV.  I listened One for the Money by Janet Evanovich,  fiction.  Too many -bomb words, so I won't be read the rest of the series.

Thanks Amanda...I wonder where Beautiful Mystery belonged...I will go back to the library for book one..I really enjoyed Beautiful Mystery...surprising ending!

I love Betty White! She is amazing.

Hope you found lots of good books, handstitcher!

Hi Kathy, this is a little late but, the Beautiful Mystery is book # 8 in the series and I really think they should be in order. book number one is Still Life. Sorry for getting back to you so late about that.

I am almost done with Scarlett and I could read another thousand pages about these characters. Hopefully, it ends well.

Just finished Betty White's book, here We Go Again.  The book covers her life up to the 90s so she needs to write another book to catch up.

Just finished listening to Doris Roberts' book, Like Laugh and Lasagne.  She played the mother in TV series, Everybody Loves Raymond.  Funny and very touching book. Must be a short book just 3 CDs.

I just started listening to Betty White's "Here We Go Again"  another funny and touching story.  Love reading auto biography.  Another short book, just 3 CDs.
