A few book choices

I enjoy reading as much as the next person, but I'm not very good at being able to sit down and read a book. I am a bit of a restless person and well reading one thing is just not my forte. But I see so many books I would love to read and never do. So here are two i just bought! Have any of you read either one of them?

I do however have NO problem reading about 50 magazines a day. Which brings me to something that ticked me off last night. I do have about 23395485 magazines at home I have yet to read, but they aren't my favs so putting them off and buying more is just fine in my eyes. So I went to CVS and thought I'll pick up "Shape" it looked like a good one and I didn't have any i really wanted to read at home so got it. I then came home to I kid you not 10 magazines falling out of our mailbox. And they were ones I'd rather read. Grrr...at least I didn't buy one that was sitting at home like one of our lovely bloggers had done before, which I have done more than once. Having two different covers for the same month is wrong...

Hope these books get here fast before i lose interest!

I read the book Bitter is the New Black. It is a funny read. There are spots that I felt the writer went on and on but For reading it while I was at the gyn on the eliptical or stationary bike it is a good read (funny).
I was a history/ humanistic studies major back in college and well trust me I had to read. Now a days I barely have time to do the things I like to do. I hate sitting still for too long.

I have a magazine problem. I get so excited when the new issues come out and I seriously can spend $20-30 at a time buying them. I have stacks and stacks, that I swear (and have kind of started to) go through and take out the articles/pictures or whatever that I like to save and throw away the rest.

It is truly a problem...

Ugh. I read so much at my job, some days it is just a chore. A magazine is a great read for the gym, so don't feel bad.

I'm reading Bitter is the New Black right now and I feel the same way, just a breezy fun read.

I am a big reader so I cannot say too much, except for the fact that I think that my magazines are like security blankets for me and at the moment I am going nuts because I cannot find the new Blueprint!

"Bitter" is the most hilarious book ever. She has a new one coming out in a few months that I am eagerly anticipating.

I thought I was the only one with a crush on Joe. He is so handsome and such a funny guy.
