Thanks for the book recommendations, I just ordered The E Myth and can't wait to read it! 08.27.10 - 12:48pm
again, you're so the ultimate couple!!!!:) 08.06.10 - 6:41am
I've been thinking about The E Myth, and then I saw this post. Guess I'll be reading that next. 08.03.10 - 8:13am
I started The Help over our summer vacation on my grandmother-in-laws kindle but didn't get to finish the last two chapters! Now I'm waiting to get it from the library..can't wait to finish it! 07.23.10 - 11:01am
Hey.... I love your blog!! It helps to inspire me to continue posting on my own!!! Anyway.. thought I would recommend to you a book that my husband wrote. It's actually a top seller on Borders and it's a memoir called, Lost & Found (by David L. Johnson Jr.) Also, he is in the process of publishing his second book called Decoded. It's actually more of a dating/relationship book. Feel free to just google it or look it up on Borders. 07.21.10 - 9:33pm
Trina Thanks for the suggestions! I read East of Eden because you recommended it and oh my god. Fantastic book. I was so absorbed with the story I think I need to read it again to pick up on all the subtleties.
I've also read The Help...thumbs up from me.
I love that you are a blogger that also reads! Seems to be a rare thing and it reminds me to get away from the computer. 07.21.10 - 11:04am
You make me feel very guilty. I live on Maui and I don't go to the beach nearly as often as you do. So sad... :( 07.21.10 - 4:07am
hmm. i just wonder, are you a fast reader jas?:D 07.20.10 - 10:19am
I feel cool that I saw this on JD's twitter first....you're a cute bookworm:) 07.20.10 - 10:02am
I recommend Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, very fast read, I loved it! 07.20.10 - 6:28am

LOVED (and still love) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. So good. Love how all the chapter numbers are just prime numbers. 07.19.10 - 11:52pm

I like hearing about your reading and beach stories
I love how you have all this different categories to your blog that tell you life's story. I can't wait till you blog about kitchen stuff or food or cooking again. 07.19.10 - 11:33pm
Life with Kaishon
I love a good book.
Love. Love. Love : )
I can't believe that our library doesn't have The Help.
I think it is the only library in America that doesn't. 07.19.10 - 9:56pm
I'm totally with you with the whole "Beach=Reading". Why would I want to go get all yucky and salty and sandy when I could just sit here and read? Good times. (p.s. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is the best book I've ever read. Ever.) 07.19.10 - 9:22pm
ps -- are you on goodreads? www.goodreads.com :) look me up if you join (amanda_m). not like you need another social media site in your life ;) 07.19.10 - 7:07pm
Ahh, awesome! I will add these to my reading list! 07.19.10 - 5:56pm
Whoop whoop!! BOOKS FOR THE WIN!! Love you, Jasmine :) xoxo. 07.19.10 - 5:56pm
That's so funny! I just posted on one of your old posts yesterday about Half Broke Horses! (I'm still catching up on your blog - sorry!) Anyway - I do agree. It's a great book but in comparison to The Glass Castle - not quiet there. But still great as a stand alone novel none-the-less! (Also - I found it probably more interesting after reading her first book because it was intriguing to see how her mother was raised that led to the life she had...as told in The Glass Castle) 07.19.10 - 5:05pm
Awesome! I love a good business book! I need all the help I can get, haha. =D 07.19.10 - 4:56pm
Reading The Help now, am loving every morsel! Have a blast on the beach gorgeous! 07.19.10 - 4:29pm
Good timing - I'm just on my way to the library! Thanks for the suggestions.
Hmmm, what have I liked recently? "The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society" Love the title, couldn't put the book down. 07.19.10 - 4:29pm
LEOLAK Thanks for the suggestions! I've read the E Myth and yes, it is a great read for business! I need to re-read it! Hope your time out isn't too long. =) 07.19.10 - 2:59pm

The only one of those books I've read is Haddon's, but I also loved it, so now I'm tempted to read all the rest! 07.19.10 - 2:46pm
hanna Love seeing the book recommendations. The girl w/ a dragon tatto is a great book (as are the other 2 in the series). 07.19.10 - 2:39pm
I'm headed on vacation next month, so thank you for taking the guesswork out of choosing a few good reads for the trip. ;) 07.19.10 - 2:06pm
Thanks for the book recommendations. I'm always looking for great books. I just read White Oleander, The Poisonwood Bible and The Kite Runner. Would totally recommend them if you haven't read them already. 07.19.10 - 1:37pm
I just added all of these to my list! 07.19.10 - 1:29pm
Thanks! I just finished The Help. I'm ways looking for new summer reads. Have you read "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides? It won a Pulitzer - it's *all that* and more... 07.19.10 - 1:04pm
Jasmine, you ALWAYS get me when you talk about books! :)
One I've added to my list and just snapped up to read after I finish the "Girl in the Dragon Tattoo" series (which has me HOOKED) is called "One Day" by David Nicholls. Check out the description: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6280118-one-day
Sounds good right? :) 07.19.10 - 1:03pm
You have to read Same Kind of Different as Me. Trust me, it will change your life. It's autobiography style and such a powerful story!! 07.19.10 - 1:02pm
how do you have time for all this reading? glad at least one book of the list I have read, thanks for the suggestions 07.19.10 - 12:49pm
ahhh.. A woman after my own heart.
I can't wait to get my hands on some of these!
Thanks Jasmine. 07.19.10 - 12:49pm

Ashley Sellers The Help is actually in production right now :D 07.19.10 - 12:31pm
v great recommendations, but probably don't want to describe Half Broke Horses as sophomoric if you actually liked it. 07.19.10 - 12:28pm
