I have done very little reading since the summer other than blogs and magazines. I read a book or two while we were on vacation in Vermont, but that’s been about it.
I strained my back a week ago and haven’t been able to run or go to the gym. I picked up three books at the library to enjoy while I’m soaking in the tub and while I enjoy some quality time with my sofa. My back is on the mend and I’m hoping to be back to running and the gym very soon.
I wasn’t sure if I’d like this book, but I haven’t been able to put it down. It’s a book of letters and the characters already feel like friends to me. I want to go to the Channel Islands to meet them! I hope it is based on fact because I feel like I’m learning WWII history while I read.
I love Rita Mae Brown’s Mrs. Murphy series and Sister Jane fox hunting series. This book is the most recent fox hunting one. I grew up riding horses and regret that I never had the opportunity to hunt. Rita Mae is Mama’s neighbor and I love that I am familiar with many of the names and places that she mentions in her books. Rita Mae is a very kind person and has been a good neighbor to Mama.
I read the most recent in Jennifer Chiaverini’s Circle of Quilters series in Vermont. I really enjoyed it and hope that this one will be just as good.
If you’ve read a good book recently, please leave a comment so that I can enjoy it, too. Many times I’ll get to the library and won’t be able to find a thing that I want to read. It would be nice to keep a running list of books that come recommended.
