Prosecuting Casey Anthony
Jeff Ashton with Lisa Pulitzer
I will admit that I have been obsessed with this case. This book is told from prosecuting attorney, Jeff Ashton's, point of view.
Much of what I read I remembered from watching the trial on TV. Jeff made several movie references in regards to Jose Baez's actions which made my laugh. Like: "Oozing charm from every pore/He oiled his way across the floor." I too felt like Jose was kind of a slime ball. I still was surprised to read of some of his antics. You could say there was no love lost between the two of them. I enjoyed this book and now I am going to read Jose Baez's book Presumed Guilty. I am anxious to read his side of the story.
I would rate this book ****

Spackled and Spooked
I cannot believe I started reading this book in January and just now finished. Thats how busy life has been lately.
I did enjoy the book. I love mysteries and I love decorating so it was fun to read. IMO, not a heavy mystery but still interesting.
The author even added some decorating tips at the end. I liked that.

Secrets of a Shoe Addict
I loved this book. I really could relate to some of the women and their experiences. The blind date with the "puppet" had me rolling on the floor.
I am a self proclaimed shoe addict myself but was pleasantly surprised that most of the story line had nothing to do with shoes.
I rate this book ****

This book was awesome. The full version written in 1953 showed what the future held for books in society. It was interesting to see how books were not allowed. I couldnt help but think about the "kindle" and wondered if it would someday bring an end to the paperbooks and leather bounds in our future.
I rate this book *****
