Confessions of an Ex-Bookworm

The topic this week for Top Two Tuesdays is favorite books. I used to be a big reader and loved everything from the classics to the lighter fluffier reads. I must confess that lately I have not been reading at all. I think it might be a little burn out from all the scientific reading I had to do in college, but it has been a while since I have had to do any of that! It is definitely time to jump back on the bookworm band wagon and checking out every one's picks will certainly help me get some books on my "to-read" list! My top two are books that I have read multiple times and have loved for a long time. I first read these in high school, but I still think they are amazing books!

1. Pride and Prejudice

2. Joy Luck Club
If you haven't read these I highly recommend both of them! Sure you could watch the movies, but as is almost ALWAYS the case- the book is a million times better than the movie!

As for this weekend, it was pretty low key. On Friday Dave brought home some delicious Greek food from one of our favorite Greek places on the other side of town- yummy! On Saturday morning I went to my Aunt and Uncle's new place to help them unload their U-haul truck. It was hot but I am glad I could help. As my Dad always says, "Many hands make for light work." My family and I went out for Mexican for lunch which was pretty tasty! On Saturday night, I went to the movies to see the new Shrek with Dave. It was cute but not as good as the other ones in my opinion. I also forgot to eat dinner before the movie and ended up eating WAYY too much popcorn and it totally made me sick! Other than that we just hung out together- watched a little TV (the NBA game!) and took Ty for a walk.
I have surgery scheduled for tomorrow and I am pretty scared about it, so please say a little prayer for me! Hopefully everything will go well and I will have enough energy to catch up on all my favorite blogs! Thanks for stopping by and thanks in advance for your sweet comments! Have a great week!

    That is too funny (but what a bummer!) that you got sick from the popcorn. I ALWAYS do that when going to a movie, forget to eat before, then end up buying 6$ popcorn and making myself sick on it, lol!
