Books This Week 4

Time for another "Books This Week" edition. These are the books I read this past week

Organizing From The Inside Out- Julie Morgenstern 4/5

I'm a pretty disorganized person-I always start with a system but somehow it never lasts more than a week. Of course it doesn't help that I have a ton of stuff. This book arrived just in time. Love the simple organizing tips given in the book. Also I particularly love the fact that she doesn't ask you to purge your stuff left, right and centre. Instead she just tells you to have a place for everything. It's no wonder your stuff is everywhere-they don't have a home. Also her organizing ideas are not rigid, she tells you to change things around when a particular system is not working. Highly recommended for pack rats like me.

The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency- Alexander McCall Smith 4/5

Very simple story telling that takes you to the heart of Africa. I loved the protagonist- Precious Ramotswe's pragmatic approach towards detection and life in general. Characters are lovable and come to life as you read. Loved it.

Tears of a Giraffe- Alexander McCall Smith 3/5

The second part of The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I'm not able to stop reading this series.
