You are so right, buzzysma! It adds so much to the story. But then, I "read" all of my books that way, anymore. LOL! No time to just sit and read. I can listen to a story while cleaning, washing dishes, or even at work. LOL! In fact, it makes work fly by! That is the best part of listening at work. HEHEHHE lmao But SSSSSSHHHHHHH don't tell my bosses!! They think I get done so fast because I am a hard worker. Not true! I just get distracted by what I am listening to and can work all the faster because I am not paying STRICT attention to what I am working on. HEHE

Gimpy, I love books like that. I'm going to the Library today and will look for it or at least get it ordered in. Maybe I'll be lucky and it will be on CD or tape!


I usually start the day reading my Bible and then praying for a good day! Right now I'm reading a book by James Patterson called Lifeguard. Pretty good so far. I just don't care for all the "bad" words. Seems like all books have them anymore.

I'm on the third book of "Change and Cherish Series-- Historical Series" by Jane Kirkpatrick.
There are three books in the series and very good read, about a woman named Emma and all the trials she has from a young woman through adulthood starting in Bethel, MO. This group of Bethelites traveled together to find a place away from others to form their own colony in the 1800's. Very Good books. Must be read in this order--
1_ A Clearing in the Wild
2_ A Tendering in the Storm
3_ A Mending at the Edge

Gimpy, I checked on Green Mountains and we don't have it in our Library system. I'll check on line for it at Amazon. It sounds so good. Was it a true story?


Someone on here was reading a Trilogy by Nora Roberts and I was wondering which one it was. I love her books and I've read quit a few. She has a trilogy out now that I'm waiting for the third book to come in. It's called "The Pagan Stone". About 3 boys (who have grown up) but when they were young they cut theirselves and made a blood brother pack and it's turned out deadly. Great read if you like mysteries.

this link takes you to various copies all prices and copies in the states of hib books indiviually, the one I have is two stories in the one book. I grew up from age 11-33 in the area he is writing about, spent more hours than I could ever count in the green mountains and Lamington, spent hours with the Antartic Beech trees he talks about, love the place.



I used to work in a book store, heaven (except for the crazy owner LOL) I got to read loads and loads of book so I knew new titles etc, I loved that job and I got to buy books at wholesale price I love a second hand or antiquarian book store, mmmm the smell, the treasures, book addict here

Girls, that series of books sounds so interesting. I think I will put that series on my summer reading list.
I just started the book Amazing Grace. It is the stroy about Willima Wilbuforce and his campaign to end slavery and the slave trade in England.

I just finished Inkheart and Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. Inkheart is a movie now. I am listening to Inkdeath, the last of the three. So far they are very good but a bit off of the "normal" fantasy I read or listen to. I have enjoyed them, though. I normally read or listen to fantasy about witches and wizards, dragons and knights in shining (or not so shining) armor, vampires and werewolves, damsels in distress or damsels kicking the snot out of people, unicorns and pegasus, fantastic beasts and so on. These three, the Inkheart series, are about a book and a family. The father of the family can "read" people into this book, the world that was created by the author. Those that are read into the Inkworld are actually living in that world, with all of the characters that the author created. The first book is about characters that the father read out of Inkheart, the book. The second is how the family are read into the book. The third is about what happens after they get there and have been around for a while. I am not finished with it so I do not know how it ends. I will let you know.

I read the Secret Life of Bees, and really enjoyed it, I would like to see the movie wondering if it really follows the book. Did you enjoy the book Jessica and how about the movie was it good Golo?

Haven't seen the movie but I think EVERYONE over the age of 12 should read "The Secret Life of Bees." It should be required reading in Junior High - it is FULL of moral & ethical wisdom. (Should I tell you how I really feel????) LOL
