Can't say enough good about The Kitchen House. It was soooo good.

Also read Anne of Green Gables and have the next two "Anne" books on reserve at the library to be picked up on Wednesday. In the meantime I am well into another of James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series, Unlucky Thirteen. It's nice to rekindle my "friendship" with the ladies of this group. I love them all. I'll have it done by Wednesday so I can meet back up with Anne.

Just returned the first four books in Laura Child's series "The Cackleberry Club". Not your typical "beach reads", but they worked for me. The series revolves around three 40-something women who run a small cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Although Suzanne doesn't raise chickens or "grow' her own eggs, I can't help but not think of CWS when reading these books.

Finishing up the last two books of the Anne of Green Gables series. There are seven books but I won't be able to read the last one. None of the libraries in my area have it. Oh, well.

They're wonderful stories and it's so enjoyable to follow Anne from being a little girl to becoming a delightful woman.

Katie, maybe you could ask for the last book as a Christmas gift. Then after you read it, you could donate it to your local library. I've done that in the past, and our library really appreciates it.

Katie, do you have an e-reader? You can get The Anne Stories: 12 books, 142 short stories.

I recently finished Stephen King's "11/22/63" and really enjoyed it. It's a time travel story about a guy going back in time to prevent Kennedy's assassination. Very interesting read and wonderful story lines.

Currently working on "the Book Thief" set in Nazi Germany 1939-1940. Also very good.

Just finished We the living by Ayn Rand. If you are interested in Soviet History the portrayal of the after revolution Russia is very accurate.

No, Dawg, I don't have any kind of electronic reading device so that's out but I like Cooking Goddess's idea. I might just do that.
