I don't know about you but I am never without a book. Be it a paper and ink or my kindle, I have one with me at all times and I am constantly on the look out for new books (or old) to read. So sisters, I turn this over to you- What are you reading now? How are you liking it?

I am currently making my way through a few books: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald, The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg, and The Storied Life of A.J. Finkry by Gabrielle Zevin. I am also rereading the Midnight, Texas series by Ms. Harris :)

Your turn!

I just finished reading the Art of Natural Cheese Making. Def a good read. I teaches you how to use Raw Milk and Kefir to make an array of cheese.

I am reading a book that was my Dad's.
The Korean War - An Oral History - Pusan to Chosin by Donald Knox
My Dad was a member of the First Marine Division and was in the last group to make it out of the Chosin Reservoir. Dad was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. He told us that he was never so cold in all of his life as he was at Chosin. . .so I know for a fact that it was REALLY cold there.
The book is very interesting as it is a first person historical account of the trials and horrors of the War. The Battle of the Chosin Reservoir was one of the most decisive battles in Marine Corps history. My Dad was decorated for his bravery there, and other Marines have told me that just surviving that makes my Dad as Bad A$$! I'm just glad that he survived, married my Mom, and was a great Dad to the eight of us!

The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Society! Just started, in a few chapters, and already mesmerized by it... a series of letters written back and forth between the characters, just after WWII when Germany still occupied the area. Can't wait to finish it.

Caleb's Crossing. Its set in the 1600's on Martha's Vineyard. Puritans and Indians inhabit the island. Quite interesting!

I just finished the book "The sunflower girl" by Rosanna Chiofalo.
This book in my opinion was absolutely wonderful.There were several close main character's and she pulled their past history(1943)and present(1970) lives together beautifully. Rosanna had so many different emotions and depth to the character's and story line that it had me turning the pages until the very end. I would recommend this book to anyone!

I want to read Invention of Wings. I liked her other books. I also just finished up the Mitford series. A person really has to read all of the books to get the story line to be complete. I really enjoyed them. I just read The Richest Man in Babylon, The Longest Ride, Where Angels Go by Debbie Macomber, and Grey Mountain by John Grisham. I am on a reading streak and like all sorts of authors. Love,love, love books.

I wrapped up the Mitford series and impatiently waiting for the new book that is coming out this fall. Right now I'm reading Patrick Taylor's series about the Irish Country Doctor. This series takes place in northern Ireland in the early to mid-sixities. I'm really happy I stumbled onto these books.

Happy reading everyone!

I just finished A Man Called Ove, which was really good though it took me a little while to get into it. Am now reading The Truth According to US, by Annie Barrows. It's excellent! Grabbed me from the first page.

I listened to the audio CD of that book a couple of years ago. It was one of the best audios I can remember listening to. Such a powerful story.

Rereading "Centennial" by James Michener. I can read and reread just about everything he wrote.

Dawn, I've always appreciated your book choices, and went online and reserved a few of the Mitford series on CD (listen in car while driving for work). Am looking forward to a change. I have been listening to some Jodi Picoult, and it can get intense for sure.

I'm reading #9, "Light from Heaven" in the Mitford Series. Amazingly each book keeps getting better in this series!

I am currently reading a few things, but the big one is "The Homemade Kitchen" by Alana Chernila! It's been my kitchen bible for the last few weeks!
But I am rereading "Station Eleven" (post-apocalyptic theater/symphony troop traveling around the great lakes) and I just checked out the third book in the "Outlander" series, titled "Voyager"
Happy reading!

Jana, I did see Hidden Figures in the theater and would recommend it! Such a great movie! I plan on buying the dvd when it comes out! I can only imagine that the book is also great! I did peruse it, but I have other books that I need to read before I buy another book! lol

Has anyone read A dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron or Hidden figures by Margot Lee Shetterly? They both sound like great movies but I would much rather read the books but can't decide which on first.
