Book Talk - Currently In My Stack

This is the stack of books that I am currently working through.  'Mother Culture,' by Karen Andreola just came this week, and while I've looked through it, I haven't started it yet.

I've been mostly reading 'On The Shoulders of Hobbits,' but Brenda at It's A Beautiful Life mentioned 'Book Girl,' by Sarah Clarkson this week and I realized that I never finished the book!   I haven't started Miss Read either.  

However, this weekend the weather is going to be nasty here, with snow and freezing rain, and Monday the high temperature is supposed to be 10 degrees (F).  So, the plan is for lots of reading, and tea, and yummy food.  Might as well make an event out of it, right?

What books are you enjoying right now?


  1. Our weather is terrible this week with many days of snow and ice. We had a 7" snowfall last Saturday and another storm is expected this Saturday. Good reading weather! I also have Mother Culture in my reading stack and I'm enjoying it very much, I'm re-reading A Bird in the Tree (the first of the Elliot trilogy), and I just finished perusing A Morning and Evening Prayerbook to review today. This Sunday I will post my Favorite Books of 2018 (a little late!) and Book Girl is definitely on the list.

  2. I love to see what books people are reading this time of year...I plan on having a list soon to's all rather subjective but still interesting to hear what others enjoy! Perfect weather to curl up with a warm blanket, tea and a delicious book!

  3. Always good to have a line-up of books at the ready in case of foul weather. It must be a big storm system because it sounds like our weather report. I am reading Christmas at Thrush Green (a Miss Read book), I haven’t finished Bandersnatch nor Book Girl. Plus I still have cookbooks to finish reading thanks to Brenda. 🙂

  4. I need to get a good book and sit still for a while:) Perhaps tomorrow! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
