I attended book club in our neighborhood last night.
I'm in love...not because I am an avid reader, but
because it's a night of girl talk, finding out what's going
on in the neighborhood and great food and wine.
Plus, if I have a deadline, I will get a book read.
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, by Amy Chua was the book
of the month and proved to be a fast read and quite controversial.
Have you read it? It was a fast read and overall the woman
is a nut job and totally crazy when it comes to her antics at raising kids.
However, it was so interesting for me to learn how other
cultures raise their children and why they do what they do.
I would say you must read it and it would be good for my kids
to read when they are older, so they can see what the rest of the
world is doing when it comes to achievements and academics.
Enough of that.
Here's my fluff book of the summer!
My Mom sent it to me...she thinks Amazon.com is so great
because all she has to do is click one button to send
herself or others a gift!
I'm loving it...
the book gives great tips on how to make your
house a place you never want to leave....I just started it.
One tip I love... is that you should have a mirror hanging
somewhere when you enter your home,
whichever door. That way guests can do a quick check
on what has happened to their
hair since they left home, if they have a huge booger in their left nostril, or
spinach in their teeth.
It adds an element of light and glamour too!
I will share more tips as I find them....okay?
Let me know if you have read either of these and what you think!
