Crying and Driving

While I have highly enjoyed listening to Gary Sinise’s Grateful American maybe it was not the best book to be listening to while driving. This morning he was talking about the Snowball Express, something I got to get a small glimpse of at Disney World last year and I was balling like a baby. I have shed more tears listening to this book than a need in the whole year before I started it.

Southern Belle Reads Book Recommendation: Grateful American by Gary Sinise

I have not fished the book yet but if you are going to read one book the rest of the year I highly recommend Grateful American by Gary Sinise. This book has made me cry and made me laugh in just a matter of minutes from each other. I am so glad I chose to make this a car read, listing to him tell his story has made me appreciate his story even more. Already I have purchased two movies I have not seen, started rewatching CSI:NY, and I’m thinking about rereading both Of Mice And Men and The Grapes of Wrath. He has a passion for everything he does and you can hear that passion in his voice in every chapter of that audiobook.

Southern Belle Reads: Grateful American

Earlier this year I was super excited for the release of Gary Sinise’s book Grateful American. I preordered it on Amazon but found it cheaper at Sam’s before I even got my preorder. I started it right away but something was holding me back from going further than a few chapters in. Last week it finally hit me when I saw that the audio book won a listening award, this was a book that screamed “car read”, especially since Gary Sinise narrates the book himself. I started listening to it this morning and I am loving listening to him tell his story. He has such a great voice. I would love to see him do the Candlelight Procession at Epcot but it seems we keep missing him by a few days. That will be on my Disney bucket list, Gary Sinise at the Epcot Candlelight Processional.

Not So Breaking News 

I saw the news yesterday. Nashville and Castle have been canceled. In some ways I am not surprised. And it some ways I am not sad about it. If everything goes as it is now and Criminal Minds Beyond Borders stays at 10:00 on Wednesdays after Criminal Minds, I know what I will be watching. Sorry ABC but I love Gary Sinise and that Beyond Borders cast.
