Book Crazy

One thing I love to do is read. I can seriously finish a chick-book (as my husband calls them) in a day or a matter of hours. I love to delve into those Christian Women books, you know the kind; be more hospitable, true joy, Proverbs 31, how to have the marriage you've always dreamed of. Once in a while I'll read a biography or a history book. I'm always on the hunt for a new book. Something to ponder before I head off to dream land..

Then I found this blog a few weeks ago and I think that Cathy's great. She actually has really neat decorating ideas and she teaches at her local university. (So you know she's really smart.) And she's been a missionary to Alaska, where there was no Internet. What, no Internet in the USA? I didn't think that was possible. Oh, how ignorant I am.
ANYWAY... she just added this fancy schmancy widget of her favorite books to her blog. So go visit her HERE and see if you share any of the same favorites. I know we do. And now I have some ideas of books to add to my list of "To Read's."

Leave her a comment if you've got a minute.

PS Does anyone have a copy of The Shack I can borrow??

WOW! I came over to say hello today and suggest the first "widget" book you should read, and you wrote about me on YOUR blog! You are just TOO sweet!

Run, don't walk, to your local bookstore to buy the novel, "The Shack". Don't waste time getting it from the library because I think you'll want to mark it up, and loan it out, and basically just devour it over and over.

And yes, keeping track of Henry's age in "The Time Traveler's Wife" gave me one big headache until I reduced everything to "younger or older"!

Well I love to read too and seriously picked up a book since I started back to work in August. But, now that I have time on my hands, I need a good book. Any recommendations?

Oooh I love Ann of gables. I still have the VHS's of them :) I have the shack, but I haven't finished it yet. Once I do, you can borrow it :)

This is my favorite book of all times. I love the movie too! I can read them all again, and again. I wish I had a set for my classroom of the series!
