Sunday Salon-Looking for Winners!
Good morning everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and the weather is great too!
My reading this week has been mostly devoted to my Civil War grad course. I'm plodding through Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson. This is a comprehensive and lengthy non-fiction book, considered to be one of the best general studies of the Civil War.
I have to say it does read more like a novel than a fact by fact discourse. The size is daunting at 900+ pages, but one would expect no less with this complex subject. McPherson won the Pulitzer Prize for this book, so if you are looking for a book to learn more about the Civil War, try Battle Cry of Freedom.
Winners of Testimony-I need addresses from you.
The following bloggers won a copy of Testimony, but I have not received your address.

Please send your address to the email address on my blog so that I can have Hachette send you our book. :) If you don't want the book any longer, would you please let me know? I want to make sure you get your book, but I will have to chose other winners after June 13th if I don't here from you. Thanks....Wisteria
