Books I read...

......while recuperating from a car accident I was in last August. Broke my knee and such so I did a LOT of sitting around reading! Thanks for keeping me company my own Lizzie!

Keep reading!

Just keep reading, reading, reading.....

I have been very negligent in my attentions to this blog and I hope to rectify the situation presently!

Even though I haven't been posting, I have been reading! Lots and lots! Let's see, since I last wrote I have finished Little Women. I love that book more and more each time I read it. :)Other books I have started and finished since then:
The Fisherman's Lady and The Marquis' Secret. Both by George MacDonald. So very good! These books are edited by Michael Phillips so that they are easier to read (and find!). If you have never read any of MacDonald's books I highly recommend these. Beautiful sweeping stories set in Scotland in the early 19th century.

Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey
Lando by Louis L'Amour
and Mojave Crossing by Louis L'Amour (I guess I was on a western kick! Gotta have some good westerns!)

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (for the second time)
We watched the old BBC version of it the other day and it made me want to read the book again. I LOVE this book. It is my favorite Austen book. Ah! Read it! I KNOW you'll love it! :)

I'm also listening to Mansfield Park by Jane Austen on audio cassette. I drive a lot for my job so I'm in the car a lot. My truck only has a tape deck so I've been getting books on tape from the library. This version is read by Margaret O'Brien. I am very impressed with her reading style. Lovely!

I am also listening to a book on CD called The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Very exciting!
Please share what you have been reading lately!
Have a lovely day!
