Default Since we're talking chick lit . . .

Another author to read if you like to belly laugh til you cry from slightly irreverent humor is Jill Connor Browne. I love her books about the Sweet Potato Queens. I was reading one of them on an airplane once, and was trying to laugh silently but couldn't help myself. The flight attendant saw what I was reading and said she had just finished that one herself.

I've just downloaded her latest onto my iPad: Fat is the New 30: The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Coping with (the crappy parts of) Life.

I'm always looking for new books to read. Thanks to this forum, there is always a suggestion for a book. I do love to laugh, I'll check it out!

I was just thinking that I need to lose myself in a few good books. Thanks for the recommendation!

Good to know since I'll be finishing up the Stephanie Plum series fairly soon. So Maggie....since you were trying to laugh silently on the plane...did you snort?

Thanks Maggie, i was checking it out after reading your post and they sound like they are so fun to read. I'll definitely be checking them out once i'm finished the book i'm currently reading and now i have to finish the Stephanie Plum books since Crystal brought them up, for which i'm very happy about. I love reading...so keep those book recommendations coming! Going to be doing alot of downloading to my kindle.

Actually, the reason the flight attendant said something is that I looked like I was trying to keep from heaving and had tears running down my face! But, I guess, at least I didn't snort!

I'm thinking snorting might have been better then looking like you might heave!

I appreciate people sharing their favorite books-- hubby and I are going to Maui next month and since, unfortunately, I still can't be too active, I guess I'll be reading a lot. I'm definitely not complaining because I love to read, and a quiet, relaxing vacation is just as enjoyable as a busy, active one in its own way. But I'm a very fast reader, so I need to load up my Kindle Fire and I am very appreciative of suggestions!
