Again...monday

Hello All!


Another Monday has come and has almost gone...thank God. This weekend was spent at another Cherub's soccer tourn. Semi finals....then home..
I read ,"Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". I didn't want to like it as I even burn out on hype..I loved it.
To those who have been living under a rock, this book has been #`1 for what seems to be eternity. Now- the first 50 pages may make some go,"WTH????". Stick with it- there is a point. When things start rolling, they really take off. Now- there is a movie out. Friend of mine , from Sweden no doubt, who frankly loves anything that has the word , "Swedish" in it saw the film. She did say it followed the book- horrid scenes at all. My little Book Worshipers....Mother Cheap Girl is terrified of terrorizing scenes. Yes- I know it is all a movie and blah, blah, blah...yet I could barely read the scenes in the book. So descriptive and terrifying..anyhow , would love someone to give a opinion.
Cheap Girl 2 is childless this week- so she is dragging poor me to .....Eclipse...there, I have said it aloud. Honestly people, Twilight is nothing to me. I am a closet True Blood fan. However, after much discussion and the fact I will have fabulous company, I am going....to a Cinnebare theatre...where I can drink the pain away.  For those who have not experienced a Cinnebare theatre let me open your eyes......NO ONE UNDER 21 IS ALLOWED!!! You even order dinner and wine....wine...wine...glittery vampires..(HAHAHAHA) and more wine.
So my Book Angels...what is worse...sitting in a regular theatre with Jr. High girls or sitting in a Cinnebare with....35+ women..who are secretly wishing Eddie would mope and grope about...or that they could pet poor Jakie??

ick....monday

Monday- we are through...I am dumping you quicker than a preteen would dump Edward or that fuzzy fellow Jacob...I have moved on and so should you..you suck and you bring crappy weather.

Well, I am back from child's soccer tourn. I know this backdrop is dreary but so is stupid Washington...this people...is the 1st day of summer and this is what it looks like around here.
I am half way through Girl with Dragon Tattoo (started it before blog) . It is intriguing. Anyone read this yet?

Cheap Girl #2 is reading Thin BLood ...one of the lower priced books from Amazon. Do I have that name right??? Anyways, we have had one book mentioned (John, I am downloading sample as we speak) . If your visiting for 1st time welcome and bring more people into our Cult...I mean group....blog?

Also- this new upgrade from Kindle..has anyone figured out how to do the whole Fbook thing on it??

Friday!!!!!

TGIF!!!! I think....I am heading out to the wild , untamed country this weekend...oh alright, a kid's soccer tourn...with children and ....Hilda the German Shepard. I am armed with Kindle ready to read and hide from any other parents who may annoy me....or children...or dogs.....please feel free to post your selections on the blog, such as John did. The more the merrier. Spread the word and post our site where you think people may want to join in.

                         People at my job vary from 21- 50+...oh sweet Lord...if I have to listen to ,"Twilight, Twilight, Twilight"..I may end it all...minus the glitter. I am not knocking it. I have two kids in preteen years...girls...so I am SUBMERGED in it. However, a fellow co-worker go Cheap Girl #2 and I into the Charlaine Harris books...that's right ...SOOKIE books. First of all.....I am a closet trash book reader. 90% of what I read , I can read in public without shame...however...the ole Sookie books are way to much fun...plus they make Twilight look like a show on Disney. Now, the gals at work state they like the ,"innocence" and apparently the glitter of Twilight...then others love the gore,sex and nonsense (plus the show) of Sookie. I have watched the show....fun..although my husband has Bill down to a science...which cracks me up more than anything..well, it's now damn annoying. I digress, the point if anyone else has read both, give us your thoughts between the two.

                     Enjoy!!!

News for today

As I patiently wait for Cheap Girl #2 to get signed on (highly embarrassing considering I am the only one on this thing Lisa!!)...looking for books that everyone would like us to review. Go to Amazon..look at the free books...place what you think we should read..We will give a honest review and others are welcome to join.

I have to admit..if they are of the MUSHY level I will try to weather through it...if I can contain  the giggling and snickering......Anyhow, gives us what you would like us to read and we will get going.

As soon as Cheap Girl#2 figures out how to get on this thing we will hopefully begin our one sided..completely opinionated reviews of a couple of popular books.......until then!!

books

Alrighty future Kindle Gods....what cheap book would you like to see Cheap Girl #2 and I review...ideas are welcome...even one's with embarrassing covers...

Kindle update 2.5.2

Miss Lisa...AKA Cheap Girl #2...shall we share our utter frustration over this nonsense?? So I call Amazon and lo and behold...they tell me all this upgrading is a ,"work in progress".  Oh pleeeaese...I felt like a child waiting for Santa,,who was never going to show up. Finally- I went to Amazon.com and went to ,"Manage my Kindle" and there was a option to ,"Upgrade manually". My little Kindle Posse...I beg of you to stop waiting the gift that may never come. Take care of it on your own...
