My Book Shelf

It might take me a while to slip in some reading here and there but I
do actually give up some quilting time in
order to read.
The key word is some.
Not a whole lot but some!

I finally decided that my substitute format of entertainment
 would be reading because I just
don't read as much as I would like to!
I bought a Kindle Fire and am actually able
to check books out!
Our local library is very small... so this gives me 

to have great access to a wide variety of books. 

These are books that I have read since the first of the year.

I loved Out of Africa (from way back when)
and Circling the Sun is a story from
the same place and time and people!
But this is another person's story...
I wish I could have lived back then and had 
known them all!

Product Details

There is a reason that this was such a popular book
and a good movie...
I loved this incredible story!

Product Details

This book was enchanting.
First of all... I have a degree in Interior Design
from when I was a city/beach girl..
long before I created a simple life in the mountains
for myself.. but had I stayed in the city...

I would have been the main character of this book!
That's all I'm saying. 
I loved this story!

Product Details

This was a heart wrenching book.
Too much sad reality.
It was excellent.

I am just finishing up The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

This one seems to keep getting bumped for another book
and set aside but I do really enjoy it. 
I am just finishing it up but plan on reading it again...
I am sure the second time it will be easier to
connect the dots between all the people mentioned.
That really has slowed me down.

The next book I am anxious to start reading is:

Product Details

The Lemoncoly Life of Annie Aster.

I have a few friends that have formed a reading group
and this is the book chosen for our next get together/discussion.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I loved Paula McLain's Circling the Sun because, like you, I loved Out of Africa. Her previous book, The Paris Wife, was also a good read.

Circling the Sun was a great read. I haven't read The Paris Apartment, and will add it to my list. Thanks for the recommendation! Sarah's Key stayed with me for a long time, and not in a good way. That was one heavy story. I listened to the Stig Larssen books on audio, and thought they were great stories. Once I got all the characters names straight in my head! I felt like I needed a note tablet to write them all down. Isn't reading a blessing? I don't get people who don't read! Thanks for sharing Sinta.

There are 2 other books to read after "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" by the same author. All 3 of them are interconnected. I loved them. I feel like there would have been another book to tie up loose ends, but Stig Larssen passed away.

I need to check these books out! Lately I couldn't find a good book that keeps my attention and I started to reread some oldies but goldies because why should I waste my reading time with books I don't love. said...

I hear ya on the book reading vs sewing. Al and I have been taking short trips to Florida for shows and concerts while we visit family so I've been reading on the plane and in the hotels. I used to read while I ate lunch but now that he's retired too, it's rude to eat while we eat :)

I should start a list too and hang it in my sewing room.....I always forget if I read a book and then I start to re read......



Oh how I need to get back to reading--I see and hear about alot of good books--but all I do is sew-boring!!
thanks for sharing your books with us-
love and laughter,di

You can also see the movies made from the books of Stieg Larsson, the Swetish films are the best, but they made them in an American/English version as well.
