Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." Dr. Seuss

That is one of my favorite quotes by the master of rhymes. I love Dr. Seuss, always have!  In honor of his birthday I'm doing a post about books. Only seems fitting to honor him this way.

I am currently reading Life Is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally and am loving it. So many things I have written down and want to remember. I checked it out from the library, but this is one I would own.

I have Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia ready to start also. My awesome sister Leslie bought the movie for me for Christmas and I LOVED IT! I know everyone who read the book said the movie was not as good. I can't wait to read it.

Next on my list is The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--A Love Story I absolutely love her blog and can't wait to read her book.

Now if you are looking for a series or 2 some of my favorites are:
The Alphabet series by Sue Grafton. I just finished L is for Lawless and while it wasn't one of my favorites it still kept my attention and had me reading way past bedtime. Start with...A is for Alibi (Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries, No. 1)

On a lighter note I love the Number series by Janet Evanovich. I usually read these in one day. So funny. I literally laugh out loud and sometimes to the point of crying. One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1)

Also a bit lighter is the Cookie Shop Mysteries by Joanne Fluke. Hannah Swensen is a cookie shop owner who always is coming upon dead bodies. I will warn you that reading these always makes me hungry for cookies. Wonder why??? Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen Mysteries)

I'm also a fan of the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. I loved the show when it was on too. These are a lot more intense than the previous 2. 1st to Die (The Women's Murder Club)

All of these links are to the traditional paper books, but I would imagine most of them are available for the e devices as well.

Have you heard of One of my favorite sites when it comes to books. You can't buy them there, but create lists of books want to read, currently reading or have read. Great way to keep track of that. You can also friend other people and see what they are reading and read their reviews. I have added many books to my list because of that. My to-read list is sitting at 640 books right now. WOW!

What are some of your favorite books? What are you currently reading?

Have an avid reader in your lift? These are great for them to put inside any books they might loan out to friends. 

One can never have too many book marks can they?
