reading

This is what I am reading right now (or at least what is on my night stand waiting to be read...)

Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show: A Novel  (stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon!)
The Miracles of Santo Fico: A Novel (on loan from my Grandmother's church library)
The Postmistress (overdue, darn new releases!)
Velva Jean Learns to Drive: A Novel  (on loan from Kim who never fails)
Embroidered Treasures for Children (which I bought at the Dollar Tree of all places!)

So far I have made it thru The Postmistress (which I highly recommend) and I am loving the eyecandy and inspiration in Embroidered Treasures (can you believe I got it for a $1? Love a deal!!)

How cute are these little slippers?

And these dollies are precious!

And there is a whole crew of pirates I may just have to bring to life for Miles this Christmas.
I mean how can you resist that face??

I am anxious to get started on the rest of the books, but with school having just started and 2 birthday parties I am trying not to feel too guilty about neglecting my pile.
It's just sometimes I don't want to start a good book till I know I will really be able to enjoy it.
It's like saving the best bite of pie for last. I don't want to rush and miss it.
Anybody else feel this way?

  2. I loved The Miracles of Santo Fico! My mom loaned it to me, and I've read it twice. Sweet book.

    I also have a neglected pile of 6 or 7 books I always mean to start or finish.

  5. The Postmistress is on my list, but not on my nightstand yet.


    Have you seen Goodreads.com? You can list all the books you have and swap with other people for free...just pay shipping.

  6. I'm in love with your dollar store find!!! I tried my Dollar Tree yesterday - but no such luck. What a great find!

  7. Reading is such a pleasure, an escape beyond compare and so I like to give good books proper time and attention. The Goodwill stores here in my area have a book a month program where (with this card) you can pick one book a month, FOR FREE. It's fabulous.
    Love reading but never enough time, I should have a bumper sticker that says, "I'd rather be reading!"

    Peace,
    Donna
