Sunday Salon, July 5th
While at Gettysburg(see movie)this week I picked up a couple (I'm such a lier) books. The museum was a treasure trove for the historian. Categorized for easy browsing, I was in heaven. Can you imagine a bookstore with only Civil War history. I couldn't make my decisions, as I kept finding another book, and then another book I wanted to read.
Well...I know I'm talking to those who know what a book addict suffers when they are thrown into a candy store containing their drug of choice. BOOKS!! How silly of me to even think I could contain myself. I admit it. I am a biblio-holic and here are the books to prove it.
Yes...I did buy a bookmark and a Gettysburg cap, along with some things for my awesome sister who watched my four greyhounds.
This week I did finish reading:
The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos, by Margaret Mascarenhas..a mystery and story of love and memory with great characters.
beneath a Northern Sky by Steven Woodworth, about the Gettysburg Campaign...awesome book!
Seducing the Spirits by Louise Young, about a women ornithologist who lives alone in the jungles near Columbia. She is banished to this lonely though idyllic spot to observe a rare eagle. While there she learns much more about the native people than the bird she was sent to witness.
I'm now reading:
Titanic, The Untold Story, by Mae Kent
Slavery by Another Name, by Douglas A Blackmon, Pulitzer Prize Winner
I hope to begin reading:
Forever Free, by Eric Froner...A history of reconstruction in the South.
One of my new books...I can't wait.
A surprise book...I'll tell you next week.
I hope ya'll have a great Sunday!! It so great to be feeling better and checking out everybody's blogs again. Thanks again for all your cheers and good wishes. You definitely helped me get better.
