Books Worth Reading
Written by my firstmom sister, Dawn Malloy Young, “Not Fade Away" is her true life story with Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones in Britain's early 60's and the best and worst of that cultural era. This ‘must read' takes readers on a journey into the early beginnings of the Stones and also explains how forced adoption was all too common in that era. The author is a survivor who overcame abuse and losses to experience eventual love and joy.

GOOD GIRLS DON'T is the debut literary effort of entertainment publicist Patti Hawn, who is the sister of the legendary film actress, Goldie Hawn. Her book is a deeply personal first-hand account of what it was like to be trapped in an unwanted pregnancy at the close of an era where home economics took precedence over sex education. This is where the typical adoption story begins....and ends. www.goodgirlsdontbook.com.

"lost in a book"....so true! ;)...Actually if it is a really good book, I feel I've lost a family/my life.
Book quote "That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize that everyone is just carrying on with their lives as though you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback". #BookQuote
.Oh so true! It's so sad to finish a book and be experiencing all the emotion inside your head while everyone else thinks you're nuts... :/ Ah the curse of being a book worm
So true. My life seems wrong when I finish a book. Like something amazing has just happened and life will never be the same...but it is.
so true! i always feel like life suddenly comes to an abrupt stop after a good book..
haha! "experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback." So true! :D

Home is the place where our life stories begin. It is where we are understood, embraced and accepted. It is a sanctuary of safety and security, a place to which we can always return. Down in the dank basement amid my moldy, hoarded food and worm-eaten books sat another precious possession: the idea that my real home, the place where my story had begun was out somewhere, and one day I was going to find it.

Instead of a tragic account of the loss of a child to adoption, compounded by the death of a subsequent child to leukemia, this book is a triumph of strength..." Nancy Ashe www.thesamesmile.com

* "Two for the Dough" by Janet Evanovich - disappointing after the first one.. I was expecting more and got the feeling it was practically the same scenario all along..
When you need a good belly laugh read or listen to any of Janet E. books. Janet Evanovich is another great author.
I love all of the Janet Evanovich - Stephanie Plum Books. They are so insane you find yourself laughing out loud in a room all by youself.

Kathryn Stockett, Author of The Help Obviously one of the best books I've read in a long time. I highly recommend the book. Movie was good, but the books was awesome!
There's a reason this title is on every book club reading list...it's very good! The compelling story takes place during an ugly time in our country's history and combines tragedy, hope and triumphs of humanity. Tough to put down.
excellent.. my 2nd favorite book. Movie was pretty darn good too.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I was told this was worth reading
The Help by Kathryn Stockett. One of my absolute favorite Books!
Awesome book & movie!
"There is so much you don't know about a person. I wonder if I could've made her days a little bit easier, if I'd tried. If I'd treated her a little nicer. Wasn't that the point of the book? For women to realize, We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I'd thought." -The Help, Kathryn Stockett, p. 492 We judge based on what we perceive, what we think we know. We set boundaries based on these abstract concepts. We separate others, group people and things where they "belong" in the categories that we create. Cheap. Classy. Smart. Dirty. Weak. Sexy. Executive. Kind. Blue collar. Creative. Rigid. Annoying. Compassionate. Awkward. Abrasive. Humble. Patriotic. Proper. Simple. Mature. Beautiful. And the list goes on. But in doing so, we separate ourselves. We think we belong in certain categories. We draw invisible lines. It's been a while since I've read a really good book (Modern Library's Top 100 Novels has had some let-downs), so I took a break from my reading list to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Someone had left the book (willingly) in our apartment mail room, so I picked it up (and will return it now that I've finished). Nothing better than a good free book! I can't speak for the movie, but if you haven't read the book, you must. It really is excellent. I challenge us all this week to remove one invisible line. When you read the above list of adjectives, what or who came to mind? Why? Is it fair to categorize them that way? Where do you belong?
My Favorite Book Club Reads! (she: Rebecca) - Or so she says...
The movie was every bit as good as the book!
