Wow, canít believe I have not checked in for over a month. Since July 16th Iíve been pretty busy. As expected, moving and watching some of the Olympic coverage did detract from reading a bit. First things first. . .

JenniK: Did you get any of the Vintage Magic books yet from your library? What did you think of Beautiful Sacrifice? Will have to check out The House at Tyneford.

ClownMom: I have not heard of the Mattie Winston series, but sounds like something I might like. Iím glad you enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. That is one of my favorite books.

LazorKay: Am glad to hear you liked I, Michael Bennett. Have not read it myself, but have heard a lot about it.


Hereís what Iíve finished since July 16. Eden Burning.

77. The Cat, the Wife and the Weapon by Leann Sweeney (cozy mystery, Cats in Trouble #4)
78. Eggs in Purgatory by Laura Childs (cozy mystery, Cackleberry Club #1)
79. Disney After Dark by Ridley Pearson (YA mystery, Kingdom Keepers #1)
80. Disney at Dawn by Ridley Pearson (YA mystery, Kingdom Keepers #2)
81. Pies and Prejudice by Ellery Adams (cozy mystery, Charmed Pie Shop #1)
82. The Restorer by Amanda Stevens (paranormal rom-suspense, Graveyard Queen #1)
83. The Kingdom by Amanda Stevens (paranormal rom-suspense, Graveyard Queen #2)
84. The Prophet by Amanda Stevens (paranormal rom-suspense, Graveyard Queen #3)

(Yes! 84 books out of a goal of 100 finished so far. *vbg*)

Absolutely loved the Amanda Stevens series and was happy to hear there will be another three books in the series. I shall be stalking her website for release dates!


Currently reading: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (Classic children's book). For some unknown reason, three of the groups in which I participate at GoodReads have chosen this as a group read some time during the past year. I wasnít planning to reread it, but then I found a copy in fairly decent condition on the $1 clearance rack at Half Price Books and figured <i>why not?</i>

I am also reading A Sand County Almanac: With Essays on Conservation From Round River by Aldo Leopold (Classic, nonfiction). I donít usually read two books at once, but the latter is a nonfiction and, Iíve found, best read in small sections in order to digest and appreciate his words.
