I am not a fan of the kindle yet. Most of what I read is at least forty years old. By the time I catch up I will probably go to audio books!

I am working on two books now. A reread or visit to Celestine Sibley's book a Place called Sweet Apple. A story of country living and southern recipes.

The second is Margaret Hard's book A memory of Vermont, our life in the Johnny Appleseed Bookshop.

Nice to hear someone's reading Celestine Sibley. Her book, Turned Funny, is fun if you can find it - my local library doesn't have it. I found her books when I lived in Atlanta, GA. What a salt-of-the-Earth person she was.

If you like Celestine Sibley you might like Gladys Taber. Also Cross Creek country cooking by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I like these regional books, the people become like old friends.

Just finished the first two books in the series by Alan bradley, "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie", and "The weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag", featuring an eleven year old "genius" girl in 1950 who solves mysteries. Worth checking out IMO. Also "once a Spy" by Keith Thomson, a fun, page-turner, best seller by a first-time novelist.

Thanks, Aunt Bea. Have you ever read any of the Elm Creek Quilters series? You might like them, as well.
