|A corner lot of my Smalltownland historic town square.|
After asking for reading suggestions a while back, I received several inquiries into what do I like to read and did I happen to have suggestions. I like to read most all genres and much of my winter evenings are spent by the wood stove with a good book. While it is true that I did read the Twilight Series, try not to let that affect your judgement.
So here's a little peek at my bookshelf.....
ALL books by Barbara Kingsolver
A Discovery of Witches and the sequel, Shadow of Night, by Deborah Harkness
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, (and the four other in the series), by Alan Bradley
The House on Tradd Street Series by Karen White
The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch
The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball....it's about farming, people
Letters of a Woman Homesteader free on Kindle....really just a collection of letters written by a young woman who went out west. Very good actually
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Pudd'nhead Wilson by Mark Twain
The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons by Charles Frazier
The BeeKeeper's Bible published by Stewart, Tabori and Chang
Honeybee; Lesson from an Accidental Beekeeper by C. Marina Marchese
The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live it by John Seymour
and, really there are so many other books that are on my shelf that I have enjoyed. Of course I love, To Kill a Mockingbird, and I confess that I have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.
Not too long ago I read a quip that mentioned being sad at the end of a book, simply because it was over.
Actually I think that is a special kind of joy reserved for people who fall in love with their books.
