Books 23 and 24 - Tales from the Crib by Jennifer Coburn and Someone Like You by Cathy Kelley

Tales from the Crib was about a chick who finds out she is knocked up on the same day that her hubs decides he wants a divorce. So they decide to stay married in name alone and raise the kid together, but live separate lives. Pretty good read and I zipped thru it on the plane ride out to California.

Someone Like You I struggled to really get into. It started with these 3 women who are on holiday on this amazing cruise down the Nile. They have next to nothing in common but end up becoming friends and continue that friendship when they return to Dublin. Each woman's story was interesting once I finally got into the damn book. Not sure why this one did not grab me right away but I did end up liking it. Good book for the most part.

I am somewhat on track to do the 50 books this year, but I see myself taking a reading break soon. I am getting a tad burned out.

Never, never, never stay together for "the sake of the child" Whatever. Tsk, tsk. *GAGGING*

I will have to read that when I am done with "The Devil wears Prada"

That first one sounds interesting. will have to check it out! I'd be reading 'The Devil Wears Prada' right now, but someone snagged it from the beach house before I could...

Instead I'm reading 'Anansi Boys' by Neil Gaiman. It's about the sons of the god Anansi (spider/trixter god) picking up where he left off, good read so far. :)

Totally off-topic but your little sidebar video thing has me totally hooked on that Dixie Chicks song. THANKS A LOT! ;)
