I just finished up "A Lesson Before Dying" by Ernest Gaines. It's a classic and never fails to bring tears to my eyes. I've read it before, but every now and again I love to get an old tried and true classic out and read it again.
This is my current "fun" book...I am loving it so far. I haven't seen the movie yet because I hate seeing the movie without reading the book first. Hopefully I will have the time to finish it up this week.
I got this book for free and I decided to sit down and see what it's about. It really has pulled me in more so than I thought it would. Having had past credit issues (thanks jerkface ex) and living on a limited budget, it's really given me some great ideas on how we can manage things and get things paid down by making a plan. I don't buy into everything that Dave Ramsey says but the book does have some solid ideas that I believe are worth following through on. Once I finish the book, I plan to sit down and write out said plan and will probably blog about it too, so look for future postings on this.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! Mine is off to a rough start but I am hoping it will smooth out before long. I think zoning off into some reading could be a great cure!
