Black Kindle - Stupidity got caught


In my last post yesterday, told you about the guy who stole paintings from the library?  Well, on Facebook right after I published my blog, I saw the report that the nut job was caught. What I did not know was that the value was over $5,000.  Crazy as a mother!!!

You see, I told you, Stupidity is on the rise!!!

JANE KIRKPATRICK - $9.99 - - - Well, since I'm posting something, let me give tell you one of the books I'm reading now.  I just finished reading it.  It caught my eye when I was looking for the book my Church book club was going to read for August and it looked interesting.  I'm going to post my review on Amazon, Goodreads and my blog as soon as I''m finished editing it.  Two women walk from Spokane, Washington (I use to live there) to New York in 1896.  What they endured during and after the walk was exciting, lonely, gratifying and very devastating   I am going to recommend to my church book.  Will post my review soon.  
The Daughter's Walk: A Novel

Got to get one in for Black History Year

YOLANDA JOE - THIS JUST IN - $6.50 Hardback - At WKBA in Chicago, five women--four black and one white--are walking a tightrope of determination and ruthlessness, race and relations, personal life and office politics. While fighting to survive in the old-boys network, they are forced to tackle the biggest story of all their own lives:

Holly Johnston--Reporter/Anchor. Hoping to be more than eye candy, she's got the reigning "Dragon Diva" to contend with--and that lady fights with fire.

Alexandra Harbor--Photographer. Street smart and burned out. Can her fierce talent keep her afloat as the station faces a ratings plunge?

Kenya Adams--News Writer/Producer. Struggling to transform her print skills into TV news, her drive to succeed is wreaking havoc on her home life.

Meg "Beans" Rippley--Camerawoman. A shattering incident will put her on the dividing line between black and white, where there are no shades of gray.

Denise Mitzler--Upper Management. Tough and ambitious, she has set her sights on the top; but a harrowing choice will challenge her sense of right.

This Just In . . . is a delicious peek at what the viewer doesn't see--the hot stories that spring from the heart of five very different women as they jockey for respect in a fiercely competitive world. At once moving and hilarious, it resonates with Yolanda Joe's heartfelt message about women, life, and love.
