A Mish Mash of Information

Sometimes in journal entries, people leave comments asking questions, so in one fell swoop, I will try to answer them all!

If you need help navigating journals, whether adding pictures or customizing your colors, please visit either John Scalzi, AOL's blogger extraordinaire or AOL Journal Editor Joe, wizard of all things technical within the journals.  Both have some great links on their journals front pages and if you don't find what you need there, they are available via email.

Here are the links to their respective journals:

 
 
 
Another question that has popped up now and again are for book recommendations!  Obviously, what I like you may not, however, here are some of the author's whose books I never pass up.
 
Kathy Reichs, Stuart Woods, JK Rowling, Christine Feehan, Phillipa Gregory, Jim Butcher, Steven Coontz, Dean Koontz, Greg Iles, Dan Brown, Lee Child, Max Allan Collins, Margaret Truman, Mariah Stewart, and Suzanne Brockmann. 
 
And oh yeah... Vince Flynn... love his books!
 
I am probably missing a few, but that is a good start, I would say! 

Here is a website that I cannot live without:
 
 
If you visit there, you can search the author's names above and get book reviews.  You can sign up for a newsletter that gives you great info on new releases.  The information you can access seems endless, I have never been disappointed when visiting there for book information.
 
I will also list some recent book titlesthat I read with my book club that were also quite good.
 
Here are some of the books that we read that I would recommend. 
 
'The Kite Runner'  by Khalid Hosseini
'Name All the Animals' by Allison Smith
'The Life of Pi' by Yann Martel
'Memory of Running' by Ron McLarty
'1000 White Women' by Jim Fergus
'A Thread of Grace' by Mary Doria Russell
'Running with Scissors' by Augusten Burroughs
   ( I also read 'Dry' the sequel to this and he just released another sequel... can't recall the name offhand)
 
I also wanted to let everyone know that my mouth sores are finally under control and I think my flare is starting to go away!
 
My son, Fuzzy, is struggling with his asthma (pollen counts are through the roof) and had a tough night requiring him to stay home from school today.  Hopefully, tonight will be better.
 
Be well,
Dawn
