Recommended Posts

I have been looking for that one Sandra. I heard that it was good.

I just finished Water for Elephants. A wonderful story and a great read.

Try "My Sister\'s Keeper" by Jodi Piccoult (SP?) But only if you have a whole box of tissues on hand at the end.

I loved both of "The Secret Life of Bees" and "Water for Elephants". I listened to all these on audiobook (because who has time to read when we are quilting), and the narrators were all very good.

Try "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt" by Beth Hoffman!! Heartwarming!

I'm reading The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon now. I gotta say, toooo much sex! And you all know I'm not a prude, but geesh!!!

OMGoodness, I could give you a list of books to read! Yes, "The Secret Life Of Bees" is an excellent read, so is "Water For Elephants". I have read most of the Diana Gabaldon "Outlander" series. Read them a long, long time ago. Interesting that they are making a come-back. (Read them in the '90s) Two books I highly recommend are by Alan Brennert, they are "Honolulu" and "Moloka'i". Both are set from a woman's perspective on Hawaiian history.(I hope that he writes more!) I asked myself, how could a man write from a woman's perspective? However, Mr. Brennert certainly did a very good job. Excellent reads! Love, love most books by Jodi Picoult. I am now reading a book entitled " Inside Of A Dog: What A Dog Sees, Smells, and Knows" by Alexandra Horowitz. If you ever wondered about the world your dog lives in, this is a book for you! What could be a dry scientific book, is written with humor and practicality for an easy read. I am seeing the dogs around me in a whole new light! A friend once said to me, "Do you ever look into their eyes, and wonder who is in there?" Yes, and now I am seeing the world more from their perspective. Explains a lot! Cheers!

Best regards,
