The New York Times Top 15 (25) Best Sellers for the week ending November 24th, 2013

Welcome! It's time for the weekly Best Seller list again! (Posted by NOON every Sunday)! I am waking up to a CHILLY morning! Wow! 13 degrees! COLD!!! Brrrr! How about you?

So what have you been reading this week? Leave it in the COMMENTS! We ALL would LOVE to hear! Not many people EVER leave a Comment, so I'd LOVE to get the Comments going! YOU could be the FIRST to do so! Come on! Click on COMMENTS and getit started!

I finished "The Rosie Project" by Graeme Simsion, which took me a grudging 1-1/2 to almost 2 weeks to read as it was SO boring, IMO. I wrote the review, and am ready to post it, but it's less than flattering. I hate to start off so negatively, but it took forever for me to read the book because that's how much I disliked it. I guess I'll just have to post the review later tonight so it goes live at 9:00pm. Maybe I'll tweak it a bit so it's not SO negative? But it was, and I cannot lie. Ugh! As I was reading it, I kept thinking of other books I read and it didn't compare in the LEAST to ANY other book I've read, and I CRAVED a different book!
Good news! I 'have' started a NEW book and am halfway into it already! YEAH! This one is SO MUCH better! In fact it's EXCELLENT! It is "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green. Now THIS is a BOOK! Wow! I'm loving it! I picked this one up on my own after eyeing it for a while. I couldn't resist!

Well, I won't see you with this article until after next Thursday, and we all know what 'this' Thursday is, so I want to wish you, your significant other, your family and friends, a very special HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Enjoy your day, however you spend it!
I know we'll be spending it at home, but I don't know if our kids are coming or not? I never know until the very last minute, as is often the case with young adults! How do we cook then? We cook enough for everyone, so 'if' they come, it's here. If not, then we have leftovers for a few days. (I LOVE turkey leftovers!) My daughter is 20 and just kind of goes with life, and my son is 16, and does the same. Really, I think my son tries to figure out where he'll have the most fun at! LOL! (Don't you remember doing that? It was FUN!) We are kind of quiet here, so he thinks things can be boring here! LOL! I've already checked out the TV listings, and there is not much on besides Football, and we are NOT fans of it at ALL. We are all caught up on our 'to-watch' DVR list, so I guess "I" will be watching Netflix or right HERE on the computer! My husband is NOT into movies. That stinks, I know. I can really only watch about two in a row at the most before I start to get bored, too! Then I want to pick up my books, whatever I am reading, or the computer!

*TEMPORARILY FREE* #ebook I HIGHLY suggest AND IT'S FREE! I don't know for how long??? So grab it today! Click on this link in blue: Sisters in Love (Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters #1), Contemporary Romance by Melissa Foster - FREE Book ONE of the 4-book series of The Snow Sisters Melissa Foster is an AMAZING author! I'm not just saying that, either. You can go into my Archive Tab and look up the following books (these links take you to Amazon where you can purchase them) - Megan's Way, Chasing Amanda, Come Back to Me, Have No Shame, and now The Snow Sisters! Here's Book 1 of 4!

Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers AND SEE THE TV COMMERCIALS, TOO! $229! Not bad! When the TV commercials are over (they are short) just click outside the video box to go back to the page!

If you are ONLY interested in a Kindle for reading, this is what I would suggest, and I'll tell you why after the link: Kindle DX, Free 3G, 9.7" E Ink Display, 3G Works Globally. I LOVE to read on my Kindle, but, I feel like I am FOREVER hitting the 'turn the page' button. This, is HUGE! It has a LOT more words per page than any other Kindle! My 'next' Kindle will be this one by FAR! Plus, with 3G access, if you go to the park, to the beach, if you go ANYWHERE, you can SHOP in the Kindle store! Especially GREAT when you are somewhere and you want a NEW book! It's at your fingertips! OR, the Special Offers, when you see one you LOVE, you can buy it right from your Kindle! I would be in HEAVEN with THIS Kindle!!! I really do not prefer the Paperwhite. Why? It's like reading on the BRIGHT WHITE COMPUTER! My eyes get tired! Especially since I have 2 sets of double vision! Yes, I do! After I've been on the computer reading or a while, I NEED to allow my eyes to rest, and THIS KINDLE is the PERFECT way to do it! Good luck in with your choice!
