Good Reading

I recently finished this book. Prayers and Lies by Sherri Wood Emmons. It is a great read! It's Sherri's first novel. She has a gift of writing and I am so glad she got this published. She was able to keep me transported to the characters and it was a page turner. One of those books that you enjoy so much you want to read another. But she hasn't published novel two yet. I must wait.  What's exciting is I know Sherri.  We went to  High School together. We graduated a year apart and she was in the Social Club Trendz with me. We recently reconnected through good ole Facebook. I got to see the excitement as her book was released and so happy for her success. I am very much looking forward to her next book.

This is my current read. Heaven is for Real . It is a new book also that I reserved from the library. (I got to be the first reader. I love NEW library books!) It is a charming story of a little boys journey to Heaven and back. His father, Pastor Todd Burpo tells little Colton's story.

And finally, this is my next read.  Toast . My friend Kristen from High School and from Kristen in London mentioned it on her blog and I am intrigued. Fascinating story of a boy's childhood through the memories of food. I am waiting for the email from my library to let me know my copy is in.

I also have a couple of crocheting books I am going to flip through, and of course, I am still trying to tackle the Bible again.

Gotta keep reading... So, what are you currently reading?

If you like to read a book that will draw you in and not let you out, you should read "The Help". I read that book cover to cover in less than a week. That was about a year ago and I STILL think about the characters and plot. It is so good, I think I am going to have to read it again.

Another good one "Little Bee". Slow at first but it gets very good!

It was given as a gag gift for a recent long trip, but reading "500 Things To Eat Before It's Too Late." Great companion as one is driving cross country with a little extra time, perhaps, to stop and try the unusual and/or the unusually bad-for-you.

Well, books seem to be a popular subject at the moment as you can see from my blog -
I hope you enjoy Nigel's book,I have all his, love his cookery programmes on television and his approach to food and eating. Like if you can eat it with your fingers why bother with cutlery!!
At the moment I have just finished The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark, my 'modern' classic for the month. (I am trying to read one a month, having worked my way over the years, through the usual 'classics' like Austen, Trollope etc.) Next it will be the third in the series by Kate Jacobs about The Friday Night KNitting Club.

Thanks for the heads up Janis, I am always on the look out for new and interesting books to read, the Nigel Slater one looks particularly interesting.
