Everyone Has A Story


I finally finished the book I was reading.  
It's not like I don't have any time on my hands.

 I love a good memoir, and this was one.

I'm not sure why I prefer reading memoir.  I guess I enjoy getting to know people, and how they lived and what made them who they are today.  I like lighthearted stories... ones that are fun and witty - A slice of life.  

Everyone has a story.  

So now, where do I go from here? 
 Finishing a good book is great... 
but then there's the task of finding an 
equally good one to move on to.

Any suggestions?


  1. I don't know of any that are all lighthearted and fun and witty, seems everything I have ever read that was like a bio or auto bio had some serious baggage mixed in. Sorry that I can't help. The last one I read and enjoyed was "Me" Stories of My Life Katharine Hepburn. It was published 20 years ago, but I read it, because I adored her in every film I saw her in.

  2. Can't think of any really lighthearted and funny ones, drat! But wait, try Alice Hoffman, she is one of my favorite authors and uses magic realism in her stories, they really are magic, and they are about people and their strange problems, though they are fiction. She is an easy read and wonderful!!!

  3. "A Dogs Purpose" was wonderful! Forgot the author though. It's been on the best sellers list for about 20 weeks now.

  4. Hi Bobbi, I love all of Naomi Judd's books... she has such a positive outlook on life, especially since she was told she only had a short time to live years ago, and refused to give up... her stories are amazing, all true life, and she has an adorable sense of humor... one of my favorites by her is called "Aging Gratefully'... love it!... glad you are feeling better!... xoxo Julie Marie

  5. PS She beat her disease and is now free of it all!... shows what a positive attitude can do!... xoxo Jule Marie

  6. Sorry I cannot help with auto bios. I've been enjoying mistery books lately.

    But I can always stop to leave you my hug and a kiss for Gracie, can I not? So there. You have been hugged!
    Love ya!

  7. River Town, by Peter Hessler. It's about his time as a Peace Corps volunteer teacher in a small Chinese town in the late 1990's. Loved it!-Inger

  8. Oh I know what you mean...I feel sort of lonely after I finish a good book. I miss the characters, the community, everything. It’s like you went on vacation and came home alone :(

  9. I don't read bios or memoirs. I am a crime/murder/mystery junkie. I have just started a Jodi Picoult book to give myself a break from murder and crime. So far so good!
