  17. The Help - Kathryn Stockett (currently reading)

Most of the books I read are recommendations from friends (or mostly one friend - thanks Alisha).  Every now and then I will hear about a book on TV or at work and I will make note of it on my phone to check out at the library later.  I heard of Tina Fey's Bossypants on Oprah (of course) and put it on hold at the library behind the 75 other people.  HIL.AR.I.OUS!  This is Tina's autobiography - she talks about her start in improv, moving to SNL, creating 30 rock and motherhood.  It's an easy read and she is a very funny writer.  Looking for a laugh - check it out.

Also, In Defense of Food was quite an eye-opening book for me.  It made me think of the food that is available to us in a different way.  It's not a book to live by to lose weight, it's a book to educate you on where your food is coming from and what you should be considering when you select what you eat each day.  Definitely informational for me.
Sinve I've been reading much more lately, I haven't watched TV almost at all.  So instead of plopping my rear on the couch and staring at the tube during my free time, I'm plopping my rear on the couch and staring whatever book I'm currently obsessed with.  Is this an improvement?  haha

you MUST add ROOM to your to-read list. I am almost finished with it and I just started like 3 days ago.

I second Room--I read the entire thing in one night. Unfortunately I had to get up with the baby after staying up practically all night, but it was totally worth it. ;-)
