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

      The bottom eye portion is not the important and can cause most of the issues. The darker stuff tends to drift downwards anyways.

      I have never worn lace, so I can't answer your second question, Michelle.  The answer to the first question is, yes.  Which is one reason I've always worn short hair wigs.  They still get hot, but not as bad as long hair, and you can get them a lot shorter than mine.   Natural hair wigs won't be as hot, but I have heard that they are harder to take care of, more expensive (not that synthetic is cheap, mind you) and don't last as long.  My mono-filament wigs have lasted me around five years.  I have two, so I can switch them out frequently.   Carolyn Marie

      'LOL!  Yeah, that's a tough one, Magnolia.  I had help from my son's GF when I started out.  Lots of Youtube videos out there, and practice, practice, practice.  I don't try fancy stuff like "smokey eye."  I use a liquid liner, a heavier line on the upper lid, and thin line carefully applied below the lower lid, and no mascara.  That simplifies things.  I gave up on pencils long ago.  They just don't work for me.
    • Michelle F
      Ok... I am bald. LoL I live in the deep desert. Cochella Valley's Summer temps average 110°. Last year it hit 122° in June.   I have heard that full wigs are very hot. Is it same with lace?

      I hope they come to a satisfactory settlement that includes good policy for students.

      Thanks so much. I think I really do need to talk to a therapist. I dont believe I have any gender therapists near me. I have to travel a ways. That's okay though. I'm willing to do so if it helps me figure out who I am. I just feel lost. I'm hoping that by going through the threads and talking with people here will also help me.

      What a pretty kitty. I hope things work for you.

      Welcome.  I certainly understand the feeling of the coming and then going of my gender issues.  I am a "bit" older and learned at an early age to suppress any desire i had to change gender.  Like you i got married and had a family.  I simply got on with life.  From time to time the need came back.  I finally just let go and transitioned.  Oddly i haven't had any urge to return.  There are certainly things i still enjoy that i learned as a male.  I'm  finally finding acceptance of all of me and am comfortable in myself. It took time.  Being here has helped a great deal.  Therapy did as well perhaps simply because i was able to be open with someone who didn't see me as a freak.   It is great that you the support of your husband.   Try to relax and enjoy the journey.   You are not alone.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I can't remember NOT crying during movies...   I even tried when Luke found out Darth Vader was his Dad and cut his hand off... And when Lia told Han, Luke was her brother I had to stop the DVD. I was in a complete sobbing and gasping, emotional blubbering idiot...LoL   Oh yeah... And especially when Ron said Hermione's name when he was in hospital after the poison he drank at Prof. Slughorn's place...
