'Gotta get caught up!

Consequently, some of these may be fairly short.
Showed my copy of Microwaves are For Cooking, by Donovan Jon Fandre to mom. She had to have it. It is a grand book for people who want to lean how to used their microwaves for more than a warm-up machine or popcorn popper! I got my copy about 30 years ago when he had his cooking show on PBS. It may not be easy to find but sure is worth it!

While looking to my (soon to be our) cook book  we came upon
Real Food Microwave: 400 Recipes from Television's Microwave Master That Taste As If They Were Made the Old-Fashioned Way
Now you know she would have to have it and only 1 left...well, until I decided I had to have it too! and then here wee none...well, not turn...checked out Amazon (were I found the copies moments ago...back up for grabs!

I got this version on with my monthly member credit. This is one time when the author (Alice Walker) reads her story to you in a very ease to listen to narration.
I loved the movie and this audio book did not let me down! If you don't believe me, check it out yourself!
I have been watching True Blood based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris and enjoying them mightily. When I found had one of the books on sale, welllll, you know.  It was just as much fun as the TV series. BUT if you are watching the series, DO NOT GET THIS BOOK yet! It is ahead of where the series is so would be a SPOILER! If you want to read one or more of the books, I would start with the first and stop as soon as you get to new stuff. That said...I loved it and want the read the earlier ones and the series to catch up to where I am!!!

The Masque of the Black Tulip (Pink Carnation, #2)

by Lauren Willig
What fun! A followup to The Pink Carnation! More bopping back and forth between the present and the days of the Scarlet Pimpernel as Ms Willig continues with the fast pace and witting conversation! I'm so glad to find out there are more of her books for DH and I to share. I love them! Such a giggle!

Egads! how long has this been waiting for me to get back to it!!

I just had to findout

New Tricks   by

I saw the picture of two dogs. (AWWWW!) And then I read a review and another and another via the blogs of others. Then I went to to listen to a minute of it...couldn't find an printed exert.  That did it! I could not wait to win it! I had to have it NOW. So Edward Kennedy's True Compass is on hold until this one is finished. I got in on
