    Default Good foalwatch entertainment ideas??

    With foalwatch coming up quickly, I am looking for good book and/or movies recommendations! I love to read and I will easily stay up all night to finish a great page turner

    So what are you reading or watching now??

    The Bombay Assassins, a series of 3 books (I have them on my Kindle) are hilarious. "Bombay Assassins Greatest Hits Box Set" is how I got them. Author is Leslie Langtry. I'm on the 3rd book now and it's almost impossible to put it down, so that would be a good late night book.

    The Preston and Childs books work well for me; I particularly enjoyed the Relic series. That kept me awake and alert well into the wee smas! Movies made me too snoozy, but I did watch many, many Golden Girls episodes.

    If you haven't read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, that one will last you for months and is quite entertaining. It's especially good as an audio book since the reader if fabulous and does a perfect Scottish accent (as well as British and French). With the audio book you can keep listening as you walk out to do your barn checks.

    Thanks for the book suggestions!!!! Movies make me tired too, I have been known to watch entire seasons of shows I had never heard of on my laptop when I have read everything in the house

    I recommend any of Helen Fielding's four novels. She wrote "Bridget Jones' Diary" and her books are very funny and hold a lot of truth. I also like Alexander McCall Smith's short novels about Edinburgh and the First Ladies' Detective Agency series in Botswana. Short and fun and full of home truths!

    You can read all the paper work I bring home from work that I never get to

    Seriously though, I tend to watch my cable series shows like Sex and the City, Weeds, Sopranos, etc. I find them entertaining and in 30 minute increments so I can get up and check on things without getting too absorbed into a story.

    If you don't want to read, puzzles are a great. My staff has a stack of boxes in the offices. Lay them out on the big table and stays until they get it put together.
