Only two books...
March is planned as my "month of D. E. Stevenson" and as a box was waiting on my front porch when I arrived home from the grocery, two more Stevenson books will make it (probably) possible to read what I have on the home shelves without going to the library (I'm not sure they have Stevenson's books). Thank you, Kristi! Two other sweet readers had sent me a Stevenson book each (was it last year?) when they learned I'd never read any of her books and I've found a couple at the thrift shop this past year.
The little used book room in the library near campus had a nice collection of Anthony Trollope paperbacks for $2.00 each. I bought Rachel Ray (the book, not the cook) as I'd recently heard someone recommend it. I have one or two of his other classics on the shelves waiting to read someday. I can see a "month of Trollope" in the future but not immediately. I would be interested in hearing favorite titles from people. He was quite prolific!
I plan to have my nose in a few cookbooks for awhile, too. Thank you SO MUCH to all who use my Amazon widget to enter Amazon and shop (as everything you buy gives me a little credit and it all adds up). I was able to order an out of print cookbook which I'd already read at the library. It should arrive later this week and I can't wait to make a few of the recipes. Hopefully I will have regained strength and enjoy time in the kitchen. :)
Congratulations to the Canadians for a wonderful Olympics and for winning the gold in hockey. What a game!
