First off, I hate reading novels. I don't think I ever in my life finished a book since grade school. What I normally do is read the first chapter and then the last to see if there is that possibility I'd be able to predict what happens in between. In my dreams, right? I usually read the first couple chapters and get sidetracked and stop reading. End of story. End of book reading. Well, my entire family and friends know I HATE reading books. They also know that I'm more into Self Help/Improvement books and instructional manual type of stuff. In addition to that, I absolutely HATE paperback books. The sight of them remind me of how the black ink of newspapers would rub off onto your fingers. Gross. Plus their pages are not white and they contain no pictures! I'm all for illustration. It's the art in me. Anyway, if there's a hard back cover book available, I will pay extra money for it. I'm weird like that. Well just recently, my sisters, cousins, and friends joined this stupid online reading club community called goodreads. OK - I take that back. It's not stupid, I could really care less for it. No offense goodreads. I swear every time a group of them are together, I witness them discussing recent novels they finished reading, their favorite authors (who actually looks at the author?), recommendations and etc. Boring. I'm just a hater because I can't join in. I feel so left out. But seriously, I'm not all about reading fictional novels. They aren't real. Fiction - hello people!! That's what sitcom and movies are for! So, in order for me to sort of fit in with their fad and feel non-jealous about this damn reading club I decided to list share-bare's Top 10 Books of all time. Not really all time. LOL! In actuality, there are only 10 books I can recall from the top of my head right now. LOL! What a perfect round number!
  1. Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with your Partner (straight depression mode - LOL!) 
  2. G.I. Diet: The Easy, Healthy Way to Permanent Weight Loss 
  3. The South Beach Diet 
  4. How to Become an Event Planner 
  5. Feng Shui for Dummies
  6. Shape Your Life 
  7. Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life 
  8. 30 Minute Meals (I got 4 editions plus one for Kids!) 
  9. Girls Guide to Starting Your Own Business 
  10. Abs Guide (Just purchased this today from the grocery store) 
 Take that! Take that! I also would highly recommend these as I read all of its contents! Woohoo!


  1. i would like to borrow the HOW TO BECOME AN EVENT PLANNER book.

  2. i am totally the exact same way. i cannot for the life of me finish reading a novel, even though i would love to finish all the "chick flick-ish" books i buy! i would also spend more money on the hardcover than paperback, no question about that! but the self help books, i can definitely finish! dunno if i ever applied them though. haha!

    i'll wait till the books come out in the theaters! haha!
