Pretty good, I daresay!
Talking about books and reading material, I am at the final leg of Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich and thoroughly enjoying it. I love this series, it has me in stitches and wish it will never end. *sigh*

For those of you who do not know Stephanie Plum, the heroine of these novels, let me tell you that she is a bounty hunter of a special sort... so, although someone would qualify these as chick lit, I disagree...they're so humourous and funny, and there's always also the mystery element when Stephanie is at work. She has a very disfunctional family, a granny, Grandma Mazur, who likes to dress in neon spandex and do her hairs in strange colourings, a father who cannot wait to see granny bite the dust or move out of their home, and a mum who does compulsive ironing whenever she is stressed, i.e. when the neighbourhood reports that Stephanie has been shooting people, or blowing up her car again, or similar disasters. There is much more, but why spoil it for you? Grab a copy or even check my bookshelf and see if there is something available for you :)

Haven't come across this series on this side...I look again ! It kept you in stitches ! are you able to knit and read a the same time ?

Oh no...knitting is done exclusively while travelling (car, train, no planes though as no knitting needles allowed), watching TV, listening to radio or audiobooks. Reading is done almost exclusively in bed these days, and in the lunch breaks. I know of some knitters who can read and knit at the same time, but I do need to keep my eyes on the needles.
And about the Stephanie Plum series, it is really very very funny! If you start reading it, just get hold of One for the Money first...

Sounds like a good series! Very colourful Granny, lol! Will keep my eyes peeled for these books.

I used to read right before bed. I've stopped reading for a while, though, after the bunnies shredded my last book :D
