Isn't this a pretty bookcase? I love the covers on old books - they made them so pretty, with gold printing and rich beautiful colors. We have a 1800's copy of 'Pilgrim's Progress' that has a beautiful royal blue cover.
We have very few books with these kinds of covers, most of our books are paperback, because they are more affordable. We buy a lot of books as we are all avid readers.
My sister in law Paula over at Gathering of Friends has been reading a series of non fiction books by Niall Williams and Christine Breen about their life in Ireland.
Paula has talked about these books for a few months now, and I am intrigued so I got on our county library system website and found two of the books, and reserved them. However they did not have the first book so I got on Amazon and ordered it. It cost me 1 penny plus $3.99 for shipping. Oh, I just realized I should have ordered it through your widget Brenda! Sorry! I will try to remember for next time!
I am looking forward to reading this series, and I will review them here for you. I like to read fiction, non fiction, doctrine, history. I don't read tons of secular fiction as I don't want to read s*x scenes or a lot of profanity.
I have started rereading 'Persuasion' by Jane Austen, as I am going to be teaching a literature class on this book in the Fall. This is one of my favorites of Jane's, my other favorite being 'Pride and Prejudice.'
What authors do you like to read? Is there a series you love? Brenda at Coffee, Tea, Books and Me has been talking about an author named D.E. Stevenson. Her books sound like a good read as well. Do you read non fiction? What kinds of things do you read?
