Books in my nook library

I thought it would be fun to list all the different books I have been reading since getting a nook. I swear I have been able to read more since having this, even if I am not saving $$ by buying them I still get more read.
Here is my "done" list - Along with little reviews of each (I have read others but I deleted them from my nook so I will have to start from here)
I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali --- Very good book! Looks at a girl age 10 who is forced to marry a much older man. She finally gets the courage to stand up for what she believes and runs away to the court house for a divorce (which is really un heard of in her land) I would totally read it again!
Little Earthquakes- This is a book from the same author as "good in bed" and "in her shoes". This book is about a group of women who meet in a yoga class (pregnant) and become really good friends-Each lady goes through a "little earthquake" in her life (loss of a baby, job loss, etc) Well written and an easy read
No Wonder my parents drank by Jay Mohr- This book was ok, I didn't finish it because it was rather slow moving for me.
The Obama Diaries by Laura Ingraham- Ha! Funny book!!! Loved it
Theodore Boone by John Grisham- My very first Grishman book I have ever read. This was pretty good, an easy read for me. So far I like him I think I will try reading his others.

Links I Love!

Great cool ideas!!! Sometime in all my free time maybe K and D will have lunches like this ;)http://www.anotherlunch.com/
Everyone needs a good deal! I check this daily (yes I admit it, I am a deal lady)
This is the second one that I check daily, she always posts great finds in our local area :)
I have signed up for this a couple of weeks ago and so far so good! (there is also a coupon code *DAVE that will save you more $$ off of it) The kids seem to enjoy 99.9% of the meals


Things have gotten really busy around here! I am trying just as fast as I can on finishing up my pre-req's so I can finally start some real nursing classes. :) Both kids have been doing really well at school! They both have a 4.0 GPA! Woo Hoo!!!! J and I are so proud of them.
