8:28AM - Book Reading.....

Finished up Book No. 31. :)
It was a REALLY fun/funny Stephanie Plum book, Plum Spooky.

Stephanie is looking for a bounty skipper and gets involved with Diesel, the hunky mystery man, just what/who is Diesel, and also mixed up with Carl, th monkey. Diesel helps Stephanie on her case because it involves the guy he is looking for Wulf. Wulf is mysterious like Diesel, but CREEPY weird. :o Carl gets dumped on Stephanie's doorstep while his owner goes on her honeymoon. Carl thinks he's human, and he loves to flip everybody the bird. lol...
Plum Spooky is an off shoot of books from the regular Stephanie Plum series. I REALLY have to read the others in this series off books. I laughed so many times while reading Spooky.

5:45AM

I am going to another show this afternoon.
It's called, Disney Live! Mickey's Music Festival.

http://www.targetcenter.com/events/detail/disney-live-mickeys-music-festival

It was kind of an impulse buy to get the ticket. I checked to see what kind of tickets were available and I got Floor 1 Row 1 Seat 1. :o
I so rarely get a chance at front row seats, that and the fact that I LOVE Disney, I bought the ticket. :)
Only downfall, the show is at 4 pm. I will need to get up around noon and hopefully be on the road by 1pm to get my comfortably up to Minneapolis in time. There are a couple of areas of road construction between here and there. UGH...
Sleep should be a joke. I rarely get any decent sleep when I go to bed earlier then normal. Gonna try to be in bed by 8 am a the latest and hope for 4 hours of sleep. Wish me luck. :p

6:15AM - Book Reading.....

WOW, gotten really lazy about updating my readings...
Last time I updated, I was up to book No. 23. I have not gotten up to book No. 30.
Short and sweet reviews are as follows...

No. 24 was:
Hitler's Furies by Wendy Lower. It's about women in Nazi Germany that took part in the killings of innocent people. It is not that good. She spends more time talking about they didn't or probably didn't take part in killings then talking about it actually happening.

No. 25 was:
Still Foolin' 'Em by Billy Crystal. This is a great autobiography of this wonderful comedian.

No. 26 was:
Murder on a Stick by S. L. Smith. I bought this book at the Minnesota State Fair. As you might guess it's about a murder that takes place at the State Fair, because of course everything even murder is on a stick there. lol... It's not a GREAT book, but it was a fun read.

No. 27 was:
Seven Up by Janet Evanovich. Another fun Stephanie Plum read.

No. 28 was:
Goosebumps: Stay Out Of The Basement by R. L. Stine. Last of the Goosebumps books that I have. Kind of creepy. DON'T GO IN THE BASEMENT. :o

No. 29 was:
Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich. Eight down only 14 or so to go in this collection of Stephanie Plum books. And there are other non numbered ones too. Not complaining though, she's a fun character surrounded by a lot of fun characters.

No. 30 was:
Roseanne Cash Composed by Roseanne Cash. It's an autobiography of the singer Roseanne Cash, daughter of Johnny Cash. She has led quite a life so far. The book reads like somebody that has spent time in therapy or working too hard to be an author.

Book List 2014:

1. A Rite of Swords by Morgan Rice
