Golo I bought a new quilt magazine early in the week with a DVD on it about long arm quilters. Thought that it would be interesting. Well I read the magazine and put the DVD on last night to watch it. Soon as it started I thought " I've seen this !" looked in my stack and sure enough there was ANOTHER magazine and DVD THE SAME AS !!!!! I had already bought it and read the mag before. I know my memory is going but , geeze ...things are crooker than I thought LOL or was the magazine so boring the first time around LOL

Oh, I really relate to this discussion. I volunteer in the library on Friday afternoons in a little gift shop where we sell second hand books. They are .50 and $1.00 for paperbooks and $2-4 for most hardbacks so it is hard to pass up the bargains. I just keep adding to my stacks (plural) and I can't read them fast enough.

Here are a few in my stack, but I can't possibly name them all.
Cleopatra's Daughter- Michelle Moran
The Memory Keeper's Daughter-Kim Edwards
The Shack-Wm Paul Young
Barefoot- Elin Hilderbrand
The Forgotten Garden- Kate Morton
A Thread so Thin- Marie Bostwick
Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind- Ann B. Ross
Back When We Were Grownups- Anne Tyler
Let Love Come Last- Taylor Caldwell
Our Mutual Friend- Charles Dickens
Furious Love- about Liz Taylor and Richard Burton

Any thoughts on any of these.

How can we possibly read all the books and make all the quilts we want? :roll:

I just got some new ones delivered and most of them are Amish. The next two I'm reading are, " The Protector : and " The Survivor ", written by Shelly Shepard Gray. They are Books two and three of a series. Book one is " The Caregiver ". I don't have time to dig all the others out right now, will add them as I get them out. Norma

Just finished The Bishop's Daughter and thank goodness for a happy ending! I have two waiting to start--Miss Julia Rocks the Cradle and The Wedding Promise. These are the last two books given to me by my sister who passed in October and I haven't been able to pick them up yet. Maybe I'll just request a few from the library.

Slumbersoft I read The Memory Keepers Daughter some time ago. Had to go look it up to remember what it was about ! I then remembered that it was OK . I read it anyway and for me that means OK [ good } as I wont wade through something I don't like . You are lucky to get used books for that price ! I have a second hand book shop near me and they charge round $12/ 15 per book Even at the Op Shops they are round $5 That is why I like my Kindle !!

Slumbersoft, I've read the Miss Julia book. I've read all of them in the series except for the last one. Some are good and funny, others were just okay to me. I like to read books that are in a series.

By the way, welcome to the group.

I do too Jill. It is more interesting instead of just one book, more happening that way. Norma

I just went to the used book store and bought a really big pile of romances and a few mysteries. they should keep me busy for a while. When I got home, I found that I'd bought #s 1 and 4 from one of my fav authors, so I downloaded 2 and 3 on the kindle. Dh has them now that I'm done.

Thanks, Jill,

I also like to read series at times. Someone recommended those Miss Julia books and I saw that first one at the library. I will see what I think.

Does any one belong to any book clubs? I belong to one, also at the library, but just pick and choose which months I go, depending on book chosen by the leader (librarian).

QuiltMom9, I've read A Reliable Wife, it was really strange, and very disturbing in spots, Shocked but I did like the ending. It just took a long while to get there.
