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

Good plan.  I find when I am under pressure I read slower or less.  It's crazy

Comment by Vilma/AR 14 hours ago

I'm on page 48.  It is mostly reviewing the characters in town.  I plan to read as much as I could and if I have not finished it on due date, I will just make a note on what page I stopped and put my name back in the list.

I'm afraid to read about chocolate.  I'm such a chocoholic that I am too tempted.  Chocolate destroys my whole digestive system.  Once I get started I refuse to stop even after I get sick.  So sad!

Thanks for the heads-up on "Death Comes to Pemberley"! I'll look forward to seeing that. A friend sent me some chocolate mysteries. The first was contemporary, but not much depth. The second is a regency mystery, with lots of detail and more depth, but is moving slowly. I'm halfway through and hope it improves, since my friend also sent two more in the series. It's by Andrea Penrose, anyone read her? It does include information on the history of chocolate, and those parts are really interesting.

I am excited to see "Death comes to Pemberley ".. I even have my DH watching the Masterpiece...and he loves it.!!..I just wish I could get him into reading books and have a passion for them, like we do!

Handstitcher-We only read 2 tales which the boys liked.  I'm proud of these future engineers enjoying my reading selections.  Next month is Hamlet.  They have been reading Shakespeare for three years and always enjoy them.

Vicki-Thanks for telling me you are listening.  I was deciding if I should read or listen.  I get a lot more listening done.  I just finished The Virginian and think it is my favorite book for now.

Amanda-Thanks for tip on Pemberley.  We get a NY PBS station which always gets things before our local station.  Loved the Mrs. Murphy series.  I haven't read them all but got a lot at our library book sale.  Hadn't seen she had a new series.

Vilma-How is the novel going?  I decided I was going to wait because I knew it would be difficult to get for a while.  Let us know how it is.

I have read some of Rita Mae Brown's books & liked them, but it has been a while.

Still listening to Minerva...so funny!! I find myself laughing out loud in the car at some mis-use of a word by Minerva's mentor (carnival for carnal is one example!)

Getting into Union Street Bakery...getting more mysterious!

Amanda..yes, I love the Ruta Mae Brown books..in fact, today is library day..I need to pick up some from her..I miss browsing in the library..on line books are OK..but there is something about actually being in the Stacks!
Comment by Amanda Best yesterday

I have only read one book by Sandra Dallas, Alice's Tulips.

I just saw an ad for Death Comes to Pemberley, being a movie coming up on PBS. So I thought I would pass that on in case some of you want to try and catch it on TV. 

I have been reading a book by Rita Mae Brown called "A Nose for Justice" which is the beginning of a new series of mysteries. I loved her Mrs. Murphy mysteries and this one has been fun, too. Had anyone else read the Mrs. Murphy books?

Vilma, I hate reading under pressure! I would probably just send it back to the library and get it later. Good luck to you

Comment by handstitcher/IL on Friday

Oooh, been a long time since I read the Canterbury Tales. I never read Tallgrass, probably the only one of Sandra Dallas' books that I haven't read. It just didn't look appealing to me.
