DN gave me a book she just finished. Trial by Fury by J A Jance. She said the author is very good. I don't know if J A is a she or a he. I'll try to get around to reading it.

I'm reading "The Help", the Gluten Effect and Primal Blueprint. Gluten and Primal Blueprint are research as I work on getting healthy and the help is pleasure reading.

I'm about halfway through The Secret by Beverly Lewis - the first in her series Seasons of Grace (main character's name is Grace). I am enjoying this read but it is on my nightstand and I'm not known to stay awake long after I go to bed.

Another book I'm reading is Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat How to break your eat-repent-repeat cycle) by Michelle May, M. D. I haven't gotten very far in this book yet.

Jan, I have read those two books by Edith Schaffer. Infact, I used to have Tapestries. It was a present but I was looking for it and am not sure what happened to it. It has been years since I have read either one. I think after I am finished with the Dale Evans Rogers book, I will look into buying or going to the library and reading Edith Schaffer books again. I remember it was an interesting and at times hard life she led. I read about her husband Francis Schaffer also. Thank You for reminding me about her. I will read about her next.
I thought the story of L"Abri was very interesting but I forgot a lot about it so it will make good
reading again. These women--Edith Schaffer, Dale Evans Rogers and Elisabeth Elliott and a few others all led interesting and sometimes very hard lives. I think they were very inspiring women. I am certainly learning a lot from reading Dale Evans Rogers book.

Shar, I loved Abram's Daughters series.

Louise, I have enjoyed reading about Edith Schaffer (I think that's how it's spelled). One of her books is "What Is A Family" and another is "Tapestries" - I think Tapestries goes more in depth about her life as the wife of the minister who founded L'Abri in Switzerland.

I am reading "Beautiful In God's Eyes, The Treasures of the Proverbs 31 Woman" by Elizabeth George. It is about becoming the Proverbs 31 woman. What I am doing is reading
one chapter at a time and working in that chapter for about one or two or even more months.
I am trying to apply what I am learning to my life. Right now I am working in Chapter 1. Since Elizabeth George recommends biographies of Christian women, am also reading "Rainbow On A Hard Trail" by Dale Evans Rogers. It is the story of Life and Love. I love reading biographies or autobiographies. I am finding Dale Evans Rogers book very interesting and very inspirational. After I finish reading her book, I will read biography or autobiography about another Christian woman. I am not sure who yet.

Here is Sarah's thread!

I'm reading The Secret by Beverly Lewis. This is the first in a trilogy Seasons of Grace. I accidentally started out reading the third book but it's still interesting finding the story filling out. It is about an Amish family in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania.

The other thing I'm getting ready to read is Sunset Western Garden Problem Solver, Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades, Mother Earth News Guide to Growing Your Own Food and Four Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman. I used to see Eliot Coleman on DIY - I don't think he is on there anymore.

What are you reading?

Patty that isn't the book. I still can't remember the name....I Can't Wait to Get to Heaven might be the name.

Fried Green Tomatoes is a very good movie and book. Sometimes a book is good but the movie is just so-so and vice versa.

Glenna I can't remember ever reading her books.

Sarah,
Could it be Fried Green Tomatoes? That was a wonderful movie.

I am reading slowly a mystery, and I can't remember the name of that book either. Just starting it. I finally finished JoAnna's book, String of Pearls. That was a bathroom book, she says blushingly. Now I have the Complete Tightwad Gazette in there, by Amy Dacyczyn.
The bible, though not often enough.

That's it for me right now.

Patty

I am reading "The Telling" by Beverly Lewis. One thing I like about her books is she immediately draws me into the story and the characters.

I think I've read all of Pilcher's books. Got most of her shorter stories in paperback from a second hand book store. My favorites were her longer stories - Shellseekers & September.

I'm trying to get into one of the books I have here. It is by Fannie Flagg but right now I can't remember the name of it. Heroine is in her 80's. My mind has been unsettled lately so having a hard time concentrating.

Anyone reading something good?

I love Agatha Christie! Peirot is great but I want to be Miss Marple. She is such a great character.

Jan I want to read some Pilcher's books. There are so many really good authors. We are going to have to keep this thread updated since there seem to be enough readers in our group.

Right now I'm in limbo for a book. I'll be sure to post when I find read.


I sure miss the library. No more book mobile, one of the cuts.

I used to love reading Agatha Christie. I am going to have to buy some. Jan, Thank You for
mentioning Agatha Christie. I used to read a lot of her books but I don't have anymore for some reason. I don't usually get rid of my books but every once in a while I get in a mood and give them away or bring them to a use book store or sell them in a yard sale. I am trying not to do that any more. I used to have tons of Barbara Cartland's books because I also love historical novels but I got rid of them also. Now I cannot find any! That will teach me to get rid of my books!

Besides the books I mentioned I am reading, I am also reading The Gospel Of John and doing a study in it.

Happy Reading Everyone!
Louise

I love reading all kinds of books. Right now I am reading "Murder She Wrote, Madison Avenue Shoot". I have read 16 Mruder She Wrote books. I have two others to read. Then I will buy some more of them. I love reading biographies. I will be starting reading "Zero Regrets Be Greater Than Yesterday" by Apolo Ohno. I am also reading "The Power of Praying For Your Adult Children" by Stormie Omartian and working in the Prayer and Study Guide of "The Power Of Praying For Your Adult Children" by Stormie Omartian. The "Murder She Wrote, Madison Avenue Shoot" takes place in New York City. Jessica is visiting her newphew Grady and his family. I just started reading it. I really love these books. Sometimes I can tell you did the murder and other times I don't know until the end of the book. It is based on the TV series but they are not the same story line. I love reading biographies and autobiographies. I do have the Autobiography of Mark Twain Volume 1 but I have flipped through but have not started reading it yet. It is an extremely large book and will take a long time to read.

I would add that Sharyn McCrumb's ballad stories are "darker" than the English cozy mysteries I like so not sure I'd recommend them. They are fascinating but I find myself looking forward to reading the next Beverly Lewis waiting on my bedside table - they are full of hope.
Shar, have you read Wanda Brunstetter's Amish stories? She has several series. It took me a bit to get into after Beverly Lewis but they are interesting stories.

Well I guess Jan and I have something in common for sure. I just love the amish stories by Beverly Lewis. My hubby got me a set of 3 for Christmas. I am currently reading The Thorn by her also. The new one will be out in April.
I too love mysteries.
I do most of my reading at night as there seems to be not much to watch on tv even with cable.

1. What type of books do you enjoy reading? I like English Cozies. Mysteries, especially Agatha Christie. Also serials such as Beverly Lewis's Amish stories and I loved Rosamund Pilcher's stories.

2. What book are you reading now? I'm reading The Devil Amongst The Lawyers by Sharyn McCrumb.

3. What is it about? This book is one of McCrumb's "Ballad Series". It takes place in 1935 in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. There is a murder trial where a young woman is accused of killing her father. Some of the characters are big city newspaper reporters traveling to this region to cover the trial. One commentator says, "The Devil Amongst The Lawyers" is a superb novel that, once started, is so well written and so expertly researched readers will find it immpossible to put down. t is also a scathing indictment of how Appalachia has been, and continues to be, stereotyped by a supposedly objective media. Bravo!" - Ron Rash, author of Serena.

I am a big Ken Follett reader...Pillars of the Earth & World Without End were fantastic.( set in the 1400's cathedral building age) I just finished the first one of his new trilogy which begins in the early 1900's and will go through many years from that point. He is usually a mystery writer, but these recent books are a real departure for him.

I read just about anything except romance novels...love to read!

I'm not much of a book reader. Not that I don't like to read but keeping up with the daily news paper and the magazines I subscribe to is about all I can keep up with. With my new cook book that came in the mail today I can have fun reading it. I've also cut way back on the magazine subscriptions. The woman's ones don't relate to those of us that don't have young children living at home any more.

1. What type of books do you enjoy reading?

2. What book are you reading now?

3. What is it about?


1. I enjoy all types of books. I mostly read books set in the early 1900's or earlier. Sometimes I read 2 or 3 books at a time.

2. Right now I'm reading a Maggie Osborn book, Prairie Moon.

3. It is set in the midwest ten years after the Civil War. The heroine lost her husband in the war and lost her child to her husband's parents. A famous sheriff/gunslinger comes along and they are off to find her daughter. It is a good story. It keeps you turning the pages.
