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

Thanks Vicki.  I have not heard of The Six Sisters series.  I will have to check that out.  

Comment by Vicki Fox yesterday

Welcome to the group Janet!

I have started listening to book five of The Six Sisters. It should be interesting...tomboy Diana is in London, dressing as a man.

Almost done with Sweet Expectations. I have found that it is the second book by Mary Ellen Taylor, with a third book due out in May.

I picked up a Christmas book by Debbie Macomber to read next. I haven't read any of hers in a while, so it will be a nice change of pace.

The books you all are reading sound so interesting!

Amanda, I think next month I will try to find an Agatha Raisin to read. I was very distracted when trying to listen to the last one and had to keep going back over sections.

Thanks for the warm welcome Kathy & Ellen.  

Right now I'm reading "One Plus One" by JoJo Moyes.  Seems to be a pretty good book so far.  She is from England so some of the monetary terms are a bit confusing for me, but it is about a woman who is basically a single mother trying to make ends meet.  She has a daughter who is a math whiz & the story is about how she goes about getting her enrolled in a special school.

Hi, Janet!  I see you so much in the other group that if you had not said you were new, I would not have known it.

Just finished the most interesting book, The World's Strongest Librarian.  Just a warning there is some what I call manly language in it that seems appropriate when used.  The worst of it comes from patrons at the library! Josh, the author, has Tourettes syndrome which is a great difficulty for a librarian.  The story is about  journey of finding faith, the support of family and living with a chronic condition.  It's also so funny! The author is a voracious reader who loves the library.  I listened to it and the narrator was great.

Amanda suggested I join this group as she & I talk about the various books we are reading or have read.  Waving at all the familiar faces on here & am looking forward to getting to know the rest of you.

Hi Girls!..I keep signing up for Amazon's free books!...not crazy about the quality in the stories..I think I will be going back to my library..I just finished a story called Before Bethlehem...I thought it would be a great Christmas story..but it left me angry, and a lot of time wasted!..the writer took the beautiful story of Christmas and thrashed it! I was shocked that Amazon, would put such junk on their Book Site.
Comment by Amanda Best on Tuesday

Wellspring of Death was not one of my favorites, either, Vicki, they do get to be more fun again, though. I have looked for the Union Street Bakery books at my library and they don't have them, so I will have to buy them sometime, they look really good. 

I just finished Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man by Fannie Flagg. I liked it a lot, but it wasn't my favorite of hers. I have been listening to The Whole Enchilada, which is by Diane Mott Davidson.

I hadn't heard of the Bas Bleu catalog you described, handstitcher, it sounds like quite a treat. I haven't read any books by Elizabeth Aston, either, I will have to see if her books are at my library.

Like you said, Vicki, everyone must just be really busy. I hope you are all having a bit of time to read!

We all must be terribly busy! I know I have been. I finished listening to Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death. I didn't like it quite as much as the first one I got, but it had it's moments. Have started listening to book four in The Six Sisters...Daphne. I do enjoy this series.

I am now reading Sweet Expectations, the second Union Street Bakery novel. So far, it is as good as the first one.

I realized that I have read the second story in An Amish Christmas, so I may skip to the last one.

Too late, Amanda! I think DH is getting me Longbourn for Christmas. I'll let you know what I think of it. Last weekend I finished The Darcy Connection by Elizabeth Aston. Anyone read her books? Then I read Haunted by Kay Hooper, and am on to The Healing Quilt. That one will go quickly. My tastes are pretty eclectic!

Does anyone get the catalog Bas Bleu? They have a website as well, but I love to peruse their catalog. It's a self-described "Bookseller-by-Post" and they have great descriptions of books that might not have otherwise crossed my path. I often get ideas for books and new authors to look for in the library from them. They also have great gifts, especially for book loving friends and family.
