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

I got two Anne Perry Christmas mysteries to read but haven't started them.  Kathy sounds like you are having fun.  Being Story Lady is a wonderful opportunity.  I have been reading some of my old children's books to the kittens.  I was reading the Thornton Burgess Animal Stories.  Then Sallie Gabble and the Fairy.  Now we are reading The Wishing Fairy Stories.  It's funny but the kittens have always settled for a long nap when I read to them.  When they were babies,  I had a tv on for them to get used to people noise.  At night I had a calm music channel.  During the day, it was the local weather channel that has music with Weather people every 15 minutes.  I noticed that when I read to my DGS, the kittens would settle down and take a nap-operant conditioning.  (my first degree was in psychology) I've tried reading from the book I am reading and children's chapter books.  They only settle with children's chapter books.  Must be something in the cadence or how I read it.

I'm just trying to make it to Thanksgiving.  Christmas-Yikes!  Wrapping presents which is not my favorite job will be interesting with peppy kittens.

I haven't even thought of reading Christmas Books...and here at the Senior Apt..they have some of their Christmas decorations up!..all of a sudden I feel alittle anxious!..knowing that I have to come up with small gifts for the ladies that live here..one day..I had no friends, and now I have an apartment house full ;;)....anyway..it's all good!...
....I made a contact with a lady, who lives here, that is going to give me all her children's books, that she has been collecting over the years....I had plans to be the Story Lady at my Julie's school, last year, but the timing was bad...so, now it looks like, the door is opening up for this New Year...hopefully with her books in my hand, as a gift from her( Sandy) to the Library at Julie's school....my DD Julie is a 2nd grade teacher there...little did I know when I moved in here, that so many things would be happening and changing for the good!..and the best part is that we are blessed with a great library here...maybe, that will be the next thing that gets started here...a Book Club...oh, I didn't tell you...I just started a Sewing Club here..and the tables and the chairs, will be moved into the new room next week!..the ladies are so excited to come, plus we have lots of electrical outlets for sewing machines and the light is good...
....so, my reading time has gotten smaller, but I will get back to it...great books waiting on my Kindle..

Last year, I started reading Christmas themed books in early November, but this year I haven't read any yet. I've been so busy this fall, it feels like the Christmas season is sneaking up on me. I'm usually ahead of the game, but not this year!

Comment by Amanda Best yesterday

I was walking by the bookshelves and saw two paperbacks, Little Altars Everywhere, and The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and I am rereading those as it has been a long time since I read them.

For audiobooks, I am listening to Welcome to the World Baby Girl, by Fannie Flagg. It has been very good. I just love how several of her novels are set within the same universe, and I adore the whole "Neighbor Dorothy" thing.

I hate when your posts disappear!

I haven't read any Christmas themed books so far this year, and I don't know what I would pick out. I have some of the Mary & Carol Higgins Clark Christmas mysteries and I might get one of those out to help me get into the spirit of the season. Or there is always the Christmas themed quilt book by Jennifer Chiaverini.

Finished reading The Christmas Hope by Donna VanLiere.  It is part of The Christmas Shoe series.  Next book,  The Christmas Secret from the same author.  During this time of the year, I love watching Hallmark Christmas movies, reading Christmas stories and cuddling up.

I have the first Six Sisters on my wishlist.  I'm listening to a book my Connie Willis.  She is categorised under science fiction but the books are about not about aliens but some technology that doesn't exist.  Several stories are about using a time machine to study history. This one is about technology that allows doctor to  put volunteers in a state to experience near death.  The doctor is trying to learn what happens in the brain so that doctors could figure out how to save the lives of patients.  She's a good storyteller.

Vicki Your daughter would love Willis' story about Emily Dickinson's poetry.  It's called "She Selects Her Own Society."  It's included in the collection The Best of Connie Willis.

Comment by Vicki Fox on Thursday

Ellen, she is doing plenty of writing....papers for classes...lol.

I have had posts disappear from fb. Very strange when that happens.

I have started listening to book three of MC Beaton's Six Sisters series. They do have their romance problems, haha!

I admire you women with all your Bible studies.

I went to the library and picked up 3 book on CD for our Thanksgiving trip next week and I am working on my EPP of Grandmother's Flower Garden.

Ellen,  yes,  that's weird and you wonder where they go when they disappear.
