Whatcha Reading?

Admit it...since you started reading blogs...you read far less when it comes to actual books. I do. It's pitiful and I'm ashamed.

For Christmas I received The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I can barely put it down!! It's an interesting life story and she is a great writer.

After I finish this one I'm moving on to participate in the Hospitable Pursuits Book Club.

We are going to read Cherries in Winter: My Family's Recipe for Hope in Hard Times.

Lisa has the synopsis on her blog. The book looks like a winner! Join us by going over to Lisa's blog and leaving her a comment.




Have a wonderful weekend!

I read at least one novel per week and 28 chapters in the Bible a week. LOTS of blogs per week too. I'm reading HOUSES OF STONE by B. Michaels at this time. Your books sound interesting.

This book looks so familiar, I think my daughter has it. Sad to say, she reads far than me and she has much more of a social life! lol!! And I have slowed down reading because of blogging, both the time it takes up and the eye strain!!

For Christmas I received "U' Is For Undertow, the new Sue Grafton novel. I Have been a follower since 'A'. I still have a pile of books I have bought and have yet to start. Still...I keep buying them! ;-)

I read and loved this book. I couldn't put it down either. Then I saw Jeannette Walls on Oprah and that was just as interesting. Amazing life story.

I've been reading Shepherd of the Hills. Being from Missouri and all, I thought I should. Rosie

I've heard good things about this book. I will have to see if the library has it. I am afraid between work, cleaning, sewing for etsy and blogging I dont get much time for reading. Maybe I can squeeze some reading time in somewhere:>)

You are right this is a great book. I am going to check out the others you mentioned. They sound really good!

I'll add these to my book list. I'm always looking for new books and authors I've not read! Thanks!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I love to read and really enjoy finding new good books. Right now in my life I do not have much time to read. I am helping my daughter with her five little ones, but in time I will go back to reading again. When I do I want to read the book you are reading. Thank you for sharing the title.

I think I have that book, as well as many other unread ones, in my bookshelves. You're right. And I've vowed to read more. I've got two books of short stories on my bedstand now.

I read The Glass Castle this past fall and LOVED it! My husband and I don't usually agree on books, but I forced him and he LOVED it. I think I want to try her new book "Half Broke Horses" when it comes out in paperback. You've got a really cute blog :) excuse me while I peruse it some more.

You Sweetie Pie, Stacey!
Thanks for the shout out! I really appreciate your support. :)
PS Are you guys staying warm? I tell you, I'm having a hard time with this cold weather!

Melissa, you are so right. I used to read novels all of the time, but since I started blogging, I have read very little. The book club sounds like a great idea. I'll go take a look. Thanks for telling us about it. laurie

Dawn said...

You are so right. I never realized how much time blogging would take up!

I just started a book my sister gave me for Christmas, "Racing in the Rain" (I think that's the tile, I'm too tired right now to go check for sure! LOL!) It's told from the dog's point of view!

Thanks for the scoop on the pottery barn dogs. I checked them out and they are really neat. I'll have to try to save a little extra this month. My wallet's got the post holiday shopping blues!
Hugs,
Dawn

I am about halfway through Sarah Palin's book. I loved The Glass Castle. After I read it I googled the author's name and found video of Jeanette with her mother. Very cool!

I found your blog through Carol's Heirloom Collection. I'll be back.

Blessings!
