I sat in the sun on the deck on Saturday and read a few more chapters.  A pleasant change from being curled up with a quilt.  Earlier this year I was doing more knitting and sewing than reading then all of a sudden a couple of the kindle books that I had on hold from the library were available so I plunged into reading again.  I'm going to be looking for more books by Faith Sullivan and Susan Meissner and book 4 of the Poldark series.  Susan Meissner has such a way with words "the pen whispered" as she wrote it didn't scratch.  It was a lovely image.  Whereas typing on a keyboard is chatter.  Another kindle book just arrived.  Happy reading --Ann--

Thanks for the book list! I don't read nearly as much as I used to... doing more handwork and such. I miss it, though, and will have to check out a couple of your suggestions.
