What I am reading now....

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 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!

Love it! I'll have to borrow it when you're done! I'm still trying to browse a business and parenting book that I have in my tote.. maybe on the 5 1/2 hour drive to Fond du Lac this weekend?

So are you saying we can look forward to your Mom being our best customer at Must Have Moxie when we launch our new lines and gifts? We love good customers ;) You should pick her brain on things she'd love to see us carry! (We're open to suggestions for anyone reading this!)

Thanks for all the great info and tidbits! You keep me updated ;)
