I just got back from seeing Andrew. Almost 3, Andrew doesn't sit or stand still more than a few seconds. He wants to be outside and he wants to run.
I was fortunate to get him in the chair with me where we made it through my reading almost two books before he was off and running again.
I usually take my daughter something and she usually hands me a book or two.
These were the books I brought home...
The One And Only by Emily Giffin
Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas—a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares.
Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave.
Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.
But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea’s comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she’s chosen is really enough for her.
As she finally gives up her safety net to set out on an unexpected path, Shea discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she has always trusted most—and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets
Because she has Amazon Prime, I had her order this book for me, on the recommendation of one of you readers. I really want to dig into this book.

Books To Review From Harper Collins...Here are the books I received for review yesterday from Harper Collins:
I couldn't find a synopsis for this book. It doesn't officially come out until next July 2017.
Shattered by grief and dreaming of vengeance, Penn Cage sees his family and his world collapsing around him.
The woman he loves is gone, his principles have been irrevocably compromised, and his father, once a paragon of the community that Penn leads as mayor, is about to be tried for the murder of a former lover.
On a bright and crisp September morning, while walking a bucolic woodland trail, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest grounds.
Immediately, she calls her husband, Peter, a former detective lieutenant with LAPD, now working for the local Greenbury Police. Within hours, a vista of beauty and tranquility is transformed into a frenetic crime scene.
