I'm reading Queen of the Castle right now :)

I love to see your list. It motivates me! :) We're fellow book kindreds!

I'll be doing another review of it in May but it is a WONDERFUL book for Christian homemakers.

Hi Brenda,
I enjoyed reading your book list. I keep a reading journal as well, and right now I'm at about 40 for the year. I plan to do a monthly post on what I've read. I've gotten some great recommendations from your blog (some I've already read and some I plan on getting.) In fact, right now I'm about to start reading the Thomas Kinkade book that you mentioned a while back...it's right by my bed!
I'm definitely a book addict...as in, let the other women have high fashion boutiques and jewelry stores...give me a library or used bookstore any day of the week! LOL
Keep 'em coming! LOL Have a blessed Easter weekend!
A fellow bibliophile,
Amy

Carla Emery's book is one of my fave reads. I grew up on a farm and like to believe that I could live like Carla did. Sadly she passed away this past year. From everything I heard of her she seemed to be a very nice person.

I just found you through the thinking blogger site/comments. I too like coffee, tea, and books. You have quite a book list. I thought you might be interested in this...
