Q:  Do you think that overall work morale would be improved by having a "book lunch", sponsored by the company, at least once a month, or perhaps once a week? 

A: In some jobs I could see it being beneficial, but in retail where I work, not a chance. It's a get-in, get-out, kind of situation.

  1. I like the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Sounds like an exciting read. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  3. Oooh, 'If You Tell' sounds like a very intense read, but I'm definitely intrigued! And yh, I can see how a retail environment wouldn't really benefit from those kind of things. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  4. Shelly sounds a nightmare. I hope Kathy's sisters sort him out.

  5. This seems to be a harrowing book with all the abuse in it :( Have a lovely weekend!

  6. I am really intrigued by this one! Shelley sounds like such a monster. I hope that you are enjoying it. :)

  7. I'm intrigued by this one. Have a great weekend!

  8. Wow, that’s a disturbing excerpt from your current read. What a scary dynamic between the sisters.

  9. Hi Freda! What ever Shelly wants! lol Yes! This sounds really interesting! I do hope you have a lovely weekend and get to read lots more :) xxx

  10. I think stories about sisters are always interesting reads.

  11. Friday 56: I've heard of Gregg Olsen but I've never owned any of his books.

    BBH: I don't believe a "book lunch" would work. People either eat during the lunches or use that time to do other things, such as paying bills, talking/texting to family, etc..

  12. Ah, so it's a true story? Hope you are finding it interesting.

  13. If You Tell sounds really interesting! The first excerpt you said is heartbreaking.

    I wasn't sure how to answer this week's question. I often read during my lunch breaks at work. I don't know how much interest a work sponsored book break would garner though.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
