Books I've Been Reading

I stumbled into this author, Patrick Taylor, in one of my Mom's Reader's Digest books.  Reader's Digests have four books that have been condensed for my reading pleasure.  I usually don't like all of the fluff and wordiness, I'd rather just get the gist.  Anyway, this is the 6th book and it was easy to dive into, now I need to go back and read the others.  It's about two single doctors, one older, one younger, living in Ireland.  It's a small town with everyone knowing everything and boy how the word travels.  I love stories about a community and their Irish way of talking is charming. I also have a thing for doctors:-) I'm now on An Irish Country Wedding, because the last book The Irish Country Courtship left me hanging. I leave this book downstairs for reading during the day.

My 2nd book is one that I keep upstairs by my bed is called Edenbrooke, suggested by a book club.  Philip is very entertaining and has made me laugh out-loud at times.  It takes place in England, one of those Pride and Prejudice clean books. The girl, Marianne, is not as well refined as her twin sister Cecily and finds herself in all sorts of embarrassing situations.  Love the awkwardness.

This is good to know. I'm always looking for new good books. I just read Matilda by Roald Dahl. I can't believe I had never read it. It was super cute. Now I'm reading my first Nicholas Sparks book. I passed all of his books in Walmart that have been made into movies and I thought I better give his books a try.

Congrats on the new car! I liked Edenbrooke too. I just got a book that I have yet to read but it is called: Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring by Carolyn Jourdan. It got really great reviews and it is supposed to be pretty funny - with crazy stories about the doctor's experiences. Anyway - since we both have a thing for doctors ;-)...
