Number one on the teen read list!!), Thomas Kinkade A Gathering Place, Mary Higgins Clark On the Street Where You Live. Can’t wait for, in fact have preordered – JK Rowlings, Richard Paul Evans.

Cutest book cover – A Dog’s Purpose.  And of course, Rachael Ray The Burger Book…I love this one and so does Will!!

Music, of course I can’t hear new tunes, but it’s summer…THE BEACH BOYS!!!!

I do tend to keep books, at least hard cover, but when we move I will be donating them, at least most of them.

I would love to meet JK Rowlings, Bill Cosby and Clarence Thomas and ask what prompted them to write such wonderful books, what was the trigger in their lives that encouraged them to work so hard to put down on paper or computer, their thoughts? Could be an interesting lunch, especially with Rachael Ray…Yum-O!!!
