Gift Idea for your Flea Market Friend

Flea-Market-Book-001

While most of America is out Christmas shopping today, I’m home reading my new book, The Best Flea, Antique, Vintage and New-Style Markets in America.  This is my gift book of the month suggestion if you have a traveling flea market friend.  My New Year’s resolution for 2014 is to use it!

What I’m Reading Now

Where'd-You-Go,-Bernadette

My friend Maura and I compare books we read and this summer she recommended “Where’d You Go, Bernadette”.  I can usually manage a book a day as we thankfully have no TV in the cottage.   I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard I cried.  This book is hilarious.  Read it.

Read My Pins

Madeleine-Albright-Final

Who knew that Madeleine Albright was a pin collector?  Fun book, great stories.  I started wearing select pins to staff meetings, but no one ever noticed.  The messages must have been too subtle.

End of Life Book Club

I just added about 10 more books to my must read list after finishing this book.  I wish I could have met Will’s mother.  I know I would have liked her.

New Year’s Resolutions

I started my New Year’s off by reading the first book, What The Most Successful People Do On The Weekend at 6:30am because I just couldn’t sleep.  Now, I just need to read the next two books and I am off to a flying start for 2013.  I have two trips scheduled and am in the process of making my reservations NOW for Brimfield in May.  I realize that at my new age, time is ticking and I for one, plan to make the most of it this year.
