Just finished listening to Doris Roberts' book, Like Laugh and Lasagne.  She played the mother in TV series, Everybody Loves Raymond.  Funny and very touching book. Must be a short book just 3 CDs.

I just started listening to Betty White's "Here We Go Again"  another funny and touching story.  Love reading auto biography.  Another short book, just 3 CDs.

I haven't read that series, handstitcher, I keep meaning to look for it at the library, or just go ahead and buy the first one, but I forget to for some reason.

I remember reading one book by Jude Deveraux years ago, but I don't recall what it was called.

I finished Gone with the Wind and went to the library the next day to pick up Scarlett, by Alexandra Ripley. I haven't been able to put it down, either.

I started two new audio books one is the second of the Valentine trilogy by Adriana Trigiani. I agree, handstitcher the second Big Stone Gap book wasn't nearly as good as the first one. I haven't tried the third, yet. The other audio book I started was a cozy mystery called It Takes a Witch by Heather Blake.

I was just thinking about Ellen and missing her on here, so if you happen to notice this message, Ellen say hi, we miss your posts and great reading recommendations!

I checked out some of the suggested writers here and found Aurora Teagarden's books have been Hallmark movies.

Hi, I am still listening to Debbie Macomber Rose harbor Inn Series.  Trying to look for a couple new writers to read, i made a list of the ones suggested here.  Will check it out.

Amanda, I read the first two Big Stone Gap books. I really liked the first, while the second was just OK. I started the third, but gave it up. I should give it another try one of these days.

Did anyone read the Aurora Teagarden mystery series about a small town librarian in the south? It was an 8 book series I really enjoyed. I just saw that the author, after 10 years, has decided to add another book to the series to be published in the fall. Can't wait!

Reading Jude Deveraux's The Mulberry Tree.  About 100 pages in and I'm enjoying it.

I just started the newest shopaholic novel, Shopaholic to the Rescue and I am loving it already. Her books are always good for a laugh!

Another author whom I have just discovered is: Adriana Trigiani. I read the first two books in the Big Stone Gap series and I am reading another first in a trilogy called Very Valentine. I am really enjoying them. Does any one else like her books?
