I'm reading a new book by my favorite author, Victor Villasenor. It's called "Crazy Loco Love". I'm loving it.

What is everyone else reading?

I'm reading One Day by David Nicholls. I'll be finished with it tonight and have to go to the library tomorrow for some new reading material! LOL

It's a memoir of the author's teenage years.

Do you know anything about the Mexican Revolution? That's what I like reading - not so much the history but the stories behind it. My favorite author Victor Villasenor penned many books about what his family went through.

Ok, I was just wondering. Yes, I agree - total chaos. In June I was in New Orleans and visited a very nice World War II museum. There was an excellent film (narrated by Tom Hanks). I learned so much visiting that museum.
