Book Suggestions

I am in need of a good book.  Nthing too complicated since i like to read before bed and by thne my brain is approaching off-mode.

Some of the more recent reads have been books like "Something Borrowed" and "Marley and Me".

I have gift cards for Barnes and Noble and want to pick up a few tomorrow -- any suggestions?

    The ones I've recently read are The Other Boleyn Girl and The Twilight Saga... I enjoyed all but for very different reasons. TOBG looks are deceiving... I thought I'd hate it but loved it

    I just finished The Girls From Ames today - it was pretty good, it was written by the same guy who co-wrote The Last Lecture.  I also read American Wife recently, and I really liked it - it was fun and an easy read.

    I am obsessed with food lit!  Basically it's non-fiction about the inside world of food.  Everything from reporters who took classes at the CIA, watched the special exam there, food critics who take you through what they do, and chefs at the white house. inside the food world.  

    Ruth Reichl is fabulous, White House Chef, President and Pastires, The Sharper Your Knife the Less You Cry, The Making of a Chef and The Soul of a Chef by Michael Ruhlman.

    I find it very interesting but also very easy on the brain.

    Have you read Chelsea Handler's books?  The one is super funny, My Horizontal Life. I loved it.

    Another light read, a girly book....Bet Me.  I don't remember the author's name, but I read it on our honeymoon. It was a cute, lighthearted book.
