Books I Love…

Ahh…It’s Saturday morning and I have a few minutes while everyone else is sleeping to indulge in my favorite past time…Reading!  I love to read (and trust me, the house doesn’t have to be asleep for me to do it!)  I just made a fresh cup of coffee, the sun is shining outside, my cats are curled up on top of my quilt and I have a good book to read.  This is perfect!
Recently, I finished one of the best books I have read in a while.  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  The story is told in letters exchanged between several different people and the authors do an amazing job of developing the characters through this very narrow perspective.  The island of Guernsey was occupied during World War II and a group of people truly survived the occupation due to their literary society.  While the war is over in the book, it is about this group of people, the books they read and the relationships that were formed.  The quote, “I laughed…I cried” is completely true when it comes to this book.  It’s a must read!
Now I must curl up with my current good book…which I will tell you about later.  What’s your favorite way to refresh & recharge?  What’s the best book you’ve read recently?  Will you check out Guernsey?

  1. I, too, read & loved this book! I borrowed it from Colette awhile back. Great story and highly recommended! Two thumbs up :)

  2. Arguing With Idiots by Glenn Beck
    He's very amusing.
