Oh how I love a good book!! I don't have much time to read anymore so when I do curl up with a book, I want that book to be GOOD!!!
I've been spending that past month or so reading through "The Annotated Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen which was annotated and edited by David M. Shapard. This is the second time I have read Pride and Prejudice and I must say that this reading was much more enjoyable!! Being able to read what is meant or implied or even just having something explained helps me to understand the story line so much better. I'm almost done with the book now; only two or three chapters to go!!!
Earlier this year I bought several Lamplighter books on sale and I've been rationing them out since I then!! The Prisoners of the Sea is the last one for me to read and I'm anxious to do so! I've heard that it's a really good book. From the Lamplighter website....
"Amidst the tumult of life at sea, myriad adventures of piracy, capture, and escape stand in contrast to the heroic, steady determination of Huguenot heritage. The final chapter adds to the intensity as it meets us head-on with a bolt from the blue, making an unexpected, legendary disclosure!"
This is enough for me to read it right now but I shall restrain myself until.....
A friend had recommended the puppy training book from The Monks of New Skete and I decided to get this book. My dogs aren't puppies but they sure have some rough edges!! I've read a little of the book so far and it's really good! Some of the things they recommend are things that I already do with the dogs!
The bag that Mrs. Paula made for me, is going to be my book bag for our upcoming trip!! It's roomy enough for me to fit everything I'll need in it, and it's very attractive!!
My reading list is very small this month! I'm finding that it's better to have a short list rather than a long one. Besides, I don't feel like I HAVE to read everything in ONE month!!!
Ohhhh, now I want to go curl up with my books and a cup of coffee or hot cocoa!!!
