Tell me what books your children enjoyed hearing you read/or they read?..so I can pass on the same joy to children, reading your books to them in the school library, come Fall.

If you could write a book (or if you have) what would it be (genre) and why??I'm curious because I've always thought it would be fun to write a book.  :-)Continue

Moving right along Vilma!

Ellen...exactly! I don't like to read two of the same type books in a row.

Kathy, for some reason I am picturing you & your DH on a merry-go-round :)

My DH is not retired, but it feels like he is. He got laid off several years ago. I'm thinking I might lose my mind when I retire, but my sewing room door does have a lock, lol. And he does spend an awful lot of time roaming around outside.

Ellen,  Mitford Tales Books by Jan Karon is always good.  I am on Chapter 23.  Seven more chapters to go.

Sometimes retired husbands get in the way!..love them..only if they are readers!..at least mine sleeps a lot, so I have time to read!..we are on a rotating schedule..while he sleeps..I read, then at 2:00am..I sleep and he has his quiet time with the Lord..then we switch again...I'm up.at. 8:00, he goes back to sleep..anyway..it is working, except when the noisy sewing machine is on!

Everyone needs a quick read.  I like those after a book I really enjoyed.  Sort of clears the palate.  I picked a Miss Julia book at the library thinking it was the new one but it was the one I donated.  Listening to Mrs. Murphy book.  Just a quick listen but when I'm busy it's all I need.  I have a Laurie King waiting.  They take concentration.  I'm home for the next three days so I can think without interruption.  My DH didn't like me listening but he wouldn't talk for hours.  Then he would get annoyed if I didn't hear the first time.  Funny having a retired DH.  Miss him.  Sigh!

Comment by Vicki Fox yesterday

I am so glad you ladies encouraged me to try the audio books. I would not be able to listen to them at home because I know DH would be constantly interrupting without even realizing he was, lol. I have a fairly long commute to work so they are perfect for in the car.

Amanda, I agree about the characters being a hoot. Ellen, thanks for the heads up about another of her series. I will be on the lookout.

We love Downton Abbey, but have only been able to watch the first two seasons. I wish Netflix would hurry up & add another one!

I finished reading The Union Street Bakery. I know there is at least one other book after that one, I hope it is available when I go back to the library.

Now I have started reading a new Wanda Brunstetter book...The Healing Quilt. I know Janice has read some of this series. This is the second one, they didn't have the first book. Her books are not at the top of my list, but they are quick reads when I need something like that.

 Vilma-Is it good?

Comment by Vilma/AR on Wednesday

I watched a lot of PBS documentaries.  I have not watched Dowton Abbey.  I guess since I did not get to watch the beginning,  I am too lazy to play catch up.  I have been busy reading the new Jan Karon book from the library and I am determined to finish it in 14 days.  I got a week left and I am on Chapter 10 out of 30,  Ugh....We'll see.
