What am I doing on my computer? I need to go READ!


Have you read or heard of any of these books?

LOL, HOW did you get the dog to sit still for that pic??? So cute!
I have A Reliable Wife on the shelf (it's been there a looong time and I haven't been able to motivate myself to read it. Not sure why that is. Maybe your review will do it?).
Have a great week!

Shy said...

*lol* I absolutely adore your header. He looks SO innocent in there and SO cute!

I've just finished reading your review on the book Teenager Sucks. Even though I am not a parent, I do believe that it would be an interesting read and will definitely made me think back of the silly stuffs I ever did when I was young!

Seriously sound like fun. Thank you for sharing. I wouldn't know such book exist if I didn't bloghop here.

Thank God my kids aren't teenagers yet, or I would run out and get a copy of the teenager's suck book. :) Love the title!

Lynne said...

Alyce: The title won't be so funny once your kids ARE teens. And you WILL be running out to buy the book. ha!

And thanks everyone for commenting on my new header. That's Emma, my dad and stepmom's dog. She will let you do absolutely anything to her. She is so docile, it's ridiculous. My dogs? I didn't get quite so lucky.

Teddyree said...

Your header is adorable and I'm following your blog again :-)

You have quite a line-up of books, should keep you busy for at least a week LOL. I'm off to check out your reviews, with an 18 and almost 16 year old maybe it's too late for the teenager book haha

The Reliable Wife is sitting in mu bookcase waiting to be read. My co-worker kinda spoilt the book for me sooo I am waiting to read it.
I look forward to seeing what you think of the book.

Hope you have had a great week!

Lynne said...

ibeeeg: Oooh, I don't know if I could make myself read a book after someone already told me what happens in it!

I'll let you know what I think. I've started it, but I've got two other books goin' at the same time.

Thanks for stopping by!
