1. I’ve recently finished reading “The Knitting Circle” by Ann Hood. Sounds a bit like the book you are reading….and I did pick up my knitting needles.

    Now I’m reading “My Life in France” by Julia Child. Her passion for cooking and the very simplest things in life, as well as the deep love for her beloved husband is poignant and touching by this woman who was quite private to the public eye. Makes me want to take cooking lessons.

    Two of my absolute favorites:
    In The Company of Women
    The Red Tent

  2. Thanks! I think my mom has The Red Tent. It sounds familiar. Would love the Julia Child book!

  3. You can have the Julia Child book when I’m finished with it.

  4. Abba’s Child by Brennan Manning
    Book about just how much God loves you. I know its not a book to get lost in but its one of my favorites.

    The Dark Tower series by Stephen King
    I know Stephen King, No thanks. Then I read the first book and I was hooked. Nice adventure book for the adults

  5. Cyndee, I’ll trade you for something I’m reading when you’re done!

    D. Or, Quite a broad spectrum of reading. I do have to say, Stephen King wrote a book called On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. It is one of the best books about writing that I have ever read. I need to find it and read it again!

  6. D. Or – I loved Abba’s Child!!
    And have read my share of Stephen King

    Karen – Another great one is “The Women We Become” by Ann Thomas.

    I have also always been fascinated by high altitude mountain climbing – I get altitude sickness about 12,000 feet so I live vicariously through the stories of others’ adventures. One I really loved was “Savage Summit” about the first 5 women to summit K2. And Ed Viesturs’ “No Shortcuts to the Top”.
