Too Hot to Read

So the AC is still not fixed (grrr), and repairguy is saying tomorrow. I might just move out into the swimming pool as it is the only cool place on the property.

So since I'm still hot, I didn't pull a library book. I realize I'm falling down on my duty so today, I'll recommend a good reading book as I don't have a technique one handy.

Today's recommendation - Charmed & Dangerous by Candace Havens

This woman is funny - biting, sarcastic, direct FUNNY! This is a chick lit book where the heroine is a witch protecting a diplomat. In Candace's world, witches are fairly common and a recognized part of society. Her heroine, however, is a "high witch" so that makes her special.

I offer you a challenge - pick up the book in the bookstore, read the first section (I think it's a prologue). If you can put the book down without buying it after reading the last sentence of that first section, you're a stronger woman than I (and have no sense of humor or personality to speak of but that's a whole other story).

If anyone takes the challenge, let me know how it turns out.

Sorry about the AC, Jana! Yikes, it has to be boiling!

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check her out when I'm at the bookstore. =D

Hi Kelly - yes, I probably should have lost some water weight, but I keep eating out where it's cool. :)

Let me know if you take the challenge!
