We have a club here that does a bi-annual book sale.  That is where I get most of my books.  Well, they announced that they will stop the book sale and will be giving the books to our library to be sold at the annual craft show.  Oh, I had a lot of fun in that book sale.  Oh well, nothing last forever.

I read The Daring Ladies of Lowell, too, Kathy, I liked it, but didn't love it. I read another book by her that was about Hollywood and Carole Lombard and Clark Gable during the filming of Gone With the Wind. It is called A Touch of Stardust, and I loved that one. I haven't read The Dressmaker, though.

Awhile ago I read, The African Queen. It was really good throughout 99% of the novel, but I was very disappointed in the ending. Has anyone else read that one?

I also loved that book, Kathy! I have The Dressmaker, but forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me!

Loved the Darling Ladies of Lowell, Kathy.  Made me really appreciate the lives our forefathers (and "foremothers") lived and all the things they went through.  We are so blessed today!

I am reading a second book at the same time...wonderful..called "The Darling Ladies of Lowell" by Kate Alcott...a historical novel of the women who worked in the cloth mills in Lowell , Mass...and how they changed history...she is also the author of the Dressmaker..

Haven't heard of it, but I will have to look for it, Kathy.

I picked up another bag of inexpensive, ($1.00 a bag!!!), books from the library sale. One was a very nice illustrated edition of Rebecca, I read it some years ago, but I think I will read it again, soon. 

I have still been reading the Barbara Graham quilting mysteries and really enjoying them. Also, I am almost caught up rereading all the Agatha Raisin's to be ready for the new one in September, (I think that is the release date).

My local library didn't have any Marie Bostwick novels, and the online library only has the five Cobbled Court ones, so I will have to look for the others somewhere else.

A lady from my local guild gave me a great book about the making of the movie version of Gone With the Wind. It has been fascinating reading.

 Funny story, Vilma!

Cute story, Vilma! Right after I saw your post on From Here to Home, I saw it on the new books shelf at the library. I really enjoyed it. Then I saw I had missed her last book, The Second Sister, so I read that one too. It's unrelated to her series, but is a stand alone book that takes place in Door County, Wisconsin. I liked it a lot.
