It's such a tiny book (less than 150 pages), I've had it for two days already, and I'm only halfway through The Pecan Man. That is absolutely NO indication of whether I like it, though -- I'm really, really, REALLY enjoying it. I just have no time.

It was funny.I came home from running errands and there was a book in one of those cardboard sleeves,and I knew I had just ordered~The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--A Love Story by Ree Drummond [My absolute favorite romance story]two days ago,so it didn't have time to arrive yet. When I unwrapped ~The Secret Of Blackjack Woods,the title sounded familiar but I knew[or I was pretty sure] I hadn't ordered it,so I looked at my Amazon orders,and nope not there.
Then I went to goodreads,couldn't find anything there except it was on my want to read list,so then I checked my email,and there was the notice that I had won from goodreads,haha!

Hi and welcome to this thread!!

I am at 37% and I am really enjoying it. It is all still a mystery to me. Too many times, at this point, I've figured it out or have it narrowed down enough that soon I will have it figured out.

PS. I edit technical material for a high-tech company whose name you all know. Every day is like swimming in alphabet soup. They love their acronyms! TLTA!
Lordy Dawn, I don't even like acronyms but my sheer laziness wins out every darn time! Please take it easy on me.....I am selling my company and if I was stressed out before I am now double stressed. There is just tooooooo much to wrap up in the final days!

Netwit, see above! I promise, it is sheer laziness on my part but I also promise on my honor that as soon as the transaction is complete I will use full titles when I refer to a book. That is unless it's TGLAPPPS! LOL!!!

Whoever suggested 'The Girls ' by Lori Lansens, thank you! I am almost done reading it and it is a wonderful, funny, lovely read! I haven't enjoyed a story like this in a long time!

I'm slowing down in the middle of The Stern Men. I want to kick Ruth in the tush. She is annoying me with her complete lack of gumption.

Keep a box of tissues by your side. It is a piece of the war seldom told, and heartbreaking as it all was.
