What book are you currently reading?

A few months ago, I read the final book in the Wheel of Time series. It was definitely cry worthy. Robert Jordan died before finishing the last book when I had less than 20 pages left in the 11th book. I had read the series during some rough times, so when his close friends finished the series (adding two more books because there was no way it could fit in 1 book), it was like closing a door. I don't want to ruin the ending, but it really struck a chord and resonated with me.

Lo-and-behold!

The "local" library had a copy of Jennifer Finney Boylan's "She's Not There" book.

I picked it up this past Thursday and I just finished it. Couldn't put it down.

A box of tissues later-> Wow.

Can't wait to read Kay's book. Thank you Kay.

"Sacre Bleau" by Christopher Moore. Dark and artsy, almost as good as his book Lamb, about the lost 30 years of Jesus, as told by his childhood pal, Biff (so irreverent and so good).

Reading a collection of stories by Robert A. Heinlein Author of "Stranger in a Strange Land"

Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was one of my first SciFi books I've read as an adult. It's still one of my favorites.

What's kind of weird is that I haven't liked anything I've read from him since.

Interesting that a Danish author would choose to change to a Finnish name.

The English equivalent being John.

Books on history fascinate me, and we can all learn from history, right.

Right now I am reading " The Last Lion " by William Manchester.

A semi Biography of Winston Spencer Churchill, " Alone 1932-1940 " A case of British politics and there silly ideas of appeasement leading up to WW2.

We could all learn something from this.

Just finished "No way Renee"

Way cool stories from Renee Richards and her most famous transition in the 70's. She talks of life after all the hoopla, very interesting insights 40 some years into the future....

But I totally forgot to mention the title of the book which I am enjoying so much-The Horse Chronicles.

It's on Amazon and super reasonable too.

And Mike didn't even offer me cookies to endorse it. I genuinely like the book

:)

Johnny

Why Thank you JJ. I've just ordered a truck load of cookies just for you. You made my day by saying that you're enjoying The Horse Chronicles. We sure had a lotta fun with our horses back then.

Just finished reading

"She's not the man I married" by Helen Boyd.

Interesting read as the book is written from a SO's perspective.

Started to read "True Selves" by Mildred L. Brown and Chloe Ann Rounsley.

A bit clinical but it seems to have some good information, albeit dated(DSM-IV).

If editing a novel counts as reading a book, the one that I am 'reading' now is tentatively titled "Never Stop Dreaming" and while originally written 14 years ago (I guess that makes it a period piece as I am not planning on updating it - only polishing it) it does not contain anything at all about trans issues - I was still in total denial.

I am not sure what name will be used as the author because it was written from the perspective of the male lead, any suggestions?

Sorry for the shameless plug but when I found this one and the half written one from the same period I had to read them and you know what - I liked them!

Watch for Never Stop Dreaming to hit Amazon sometime next month and if it sells I will work harder to get the next one finished.

Love ya,

Sally

      dear dad was a terrible drunk
      he'd drink until he got sunk
      vodka worked very well for him
      his liver and kidneys did not   he had two wonderful sisters
      that would call him out on his junk
      they tried to help him get better
      but he died in his own pool of funk

      Diet!!! Exercise!!! I thought we weren't supposed to swear on the forum!?   Well, it's a swear word to me at least, I'm chubby and proud... I've been under the weather for a few weeks and have not been able to handle any food for the last 8 days, just a single top ramen with a pinch of the chicken flavor at best each day. This for me is nearly a sin (I love to eat!) and I've already dropped 10 pounds and counting, this by the way is NOT recommended, it is super unhealthy. I can't wait to eat again, I fantasize and dream about food! Hot dogs and mac&cheese, chocolate cake and some ice cream, maybe a dozen crispy cream donuts to feed my inner piggy.... OH I WANT TO EAT! My coworkers are sick of my whining, they all got better and eat normal again, if I see one more cubicle dweller munching a hot pocket I'm going home! From all the stories around work and from family I have another week to go before My tummy will  work again, it's like torture! I hate that my girls are not as fluffy under my shirt like they were before, I can't wait to feed my curves some chocolate cake when I feel better. I am hoping the upside to my unintentional diet will be loosing some boy fat and gaining some girl curves! Big squishy hugs, Jae

      Hi Brandi,  I only came out to her about the cross dressing, I have yet to drop the girl and hormone part... That's gonna take a while and some counseling before it happens- As I've said before, "if she screams, accuses me of being a cross-dresser and tells me to get out, I'll just pack up her things and go"   (not really, I'd beg at her feet on my hands and knees and lie my tail off)   squishy hugs, Jae

      Hi.  This is my first day here.  I have a 15 (almost 16) year old teenager, he was born a female and now is trans to boy. This was only brought to our attention 2 years ago.  My teen (we will call him David) had alway been very feminine acting, loved wearing dresses and playing with dolls.  Around the latter part of middle school it started to change.  He cut his hair short in 8th grade, then the summer before 9th grade, he told us he's like to become a boy.  We are very open minded and accepting parents.  So we were ok with it, and supportive.  Told him we'd always love him no matter what.  He seems to still like boys.  But my major question in my mind - this week - is when should we allow him to start on T hormones, and let him do his top surgery.  He wants to do top surgery right away.  We told him he needs to wait until senior year.  My "other" son, who is a year and a half older than him supports him 100%, and started a Fundme campaign for him to get top surgery.  He challenges me all the time on why we are making him wait.  I told him, insurance won't cover any of it until he's 18 (I think).  But the other reason is that I really want to make sure he is 100% SURE before he does anything. Just looking for discussion.  Thanks!

      Hey Jae Bear, That sounds like a great idea! It's always good to practice and then practice some more. Those books can be a bit difficult sometimes, but the usually are for different levels of artists. Keep drawing. ~Alex

      Hello All:   Thank you for the advice.  I know that I go back and see my doctor in March and will need to get labs done a week before so we can go over the results.   I have notice an itching around my breast and thought it was because of me wearing my breast forms.  Also I have notice that I did have a slight pain where it felt like it was on the bones, but when I put my breast on, the pain almost went away and felt comfortable.   Thank You   Amy

      My heart goes out to you, Jae. It's pure h___ if your spouse won't support you. I know from experience, my wife would have no part of it and demanded that I not dress that way, so I had to dress behind her back. That's hard emotionally and I completely understand how you feel. I guess I could have been the one to write that poem as it's my story as well. You nailed it!   Love, Brandi

      Hi Alex,  I got out my daughters 'how to draw furries' book last night and realized it is for serious artists, not beginners... I think the author was just trying to show off a little. I am just going to keep knocking out the same little body form and bunny body overlay until I can do it from memory, I try to draw one every night if I can, just to keep that pencil moving. I might have to explore more digital methods, but I would really just use that to color in the pencil sketch anyway... Hugs, Jae
