Talk Among Ourselves

Full day yesterday. I did a brown bag luncheon presentation of fifteen books for the library staff, followed by a Readers' Advisory meeting. One hour on the reference desk, and a trip to Scottsdale to the Poisoned Pen. Tomorrow, I'll have a recap of the program featuring Kate Carlisle, Annette Mahon and Jenn McKinlay.

I did finish a book, but who had time to blog it? It's 10:15 as I write this, and I'm heading to bed.

So, let's talk. What was the last book you brought into the house, and where did it come from? The library? A bookstore? A grocery store? Or did you download it on an electronic device of some sort?

I brought home Debbie Macomber's new book, The Inn at Rose Harbor, from the library.

Recap tomorrow, and don't forget about the book giveaway. I'm kicking off a Sean Chercover giveaway tonight.

Christie, Let me know what you think of Pies and Prejudice. It's a different direction for Ellery Adams, but I loved it.

Lesa said...

Sandi & Lori,

Thanks for telling us what you're reading, or about to start. I'm always interested.

Lesa said...

Thank you, Robin.

The book I recently brought home was from our small town library. "A Family Place" by Charles Gaines. I am so enjoying this book about building a cabin with his family in Nova Scotia. What I love about it, is how he describes the experience. It is a wonderful fantasy in a beautiful place.

I just finished "A Beautful Blue Death" and am going to look for the next two books in the series at the library today. I am bringing "Maine", "The Flight of Gemma Hardy", "Acedia and Me", and "The First Foodies" on vacation tomorrow. Plus any sequels I find.

For the car I have a "Stink" book on cd. After that I hope my son enjoys listening to "Misty of Chincoteague". Can you tell he'll be seven soon?

Happy reading! Thanks for all of the great recommendations.

Judgment Call by J. A. Jance, a Joanna Brady novel, from the library. It's a complicated plot. I like that she involves her growing family. Jenny is now a teen-ager. Hoo!!!

Does downloading from Audible to my iPod count? I, like you got "The Inn at Rose Harbor", but I also downloaded the .99 prequel to my Kindle. Very short but nice.

Lesa said...

I love it! So many of you answered you picked something up at the library. It's what I suspected all along, that many of the readers here are library users. Thank you.

And, Pat. You're darn right that downloading from Audible counts. Anything that could be considered "a book". Definitely!

Ten Beach Road and Ocean Beach. I won these on another blog and they came in the mail!

I got started on cozies by the library. I have a lot of trouble with extreme fatigue, so I don't go often. I remember getting hooked on a dog cozy series by an author who quit writing them.

I didn't read Ten Beach Road, but really liked Ocean Beach, Karen. You're in for a treat. Terrific group of women in those books.

Lesa said...

Cozies are some of my favorites, Carol. Nice to know you're getting a selection from the library.

All most all of my books come from the library and I usually bring several (or more) home at a time. I just finished Liar, Liar by K.J. Larsen (thank you for the recommendation!) and almost finished with Due or Die by Jenn McKinlay. I still have a stack of books waiting for me.

I bring books home practically every week as our library has a continuous books sale sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The last book I brought home was The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett which the book club is discussing on Tuesday.
The other book which I bought at the sale was Debbie Macomber's Twenty Wishes which is delightful.

Lesa said...

Jane! I'm glad to see you enjoyed Liar! Liar! I booktalked the sequel just yesterday. Stacks of books are wonderful. That means there's more to pick from!

Lesa said...

I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books, Sunnymay. Glad you have such a rich source of books at your library booksale.

The last book I brought into my house was a digital download, but I did have my daughter pick up The Witness (Nora Roberts) for me at the bookstore.

While on the road with my husband, I read a lot of e-books(177 since May 1st), including novels, novellas, and short stories.

Lesa said...

My gosh, Karen! 177 e-books since May. That's amazing. Keep reading!
