So many books, so little time!!

Currently reading (for a book club, and very much enjoying.  I don’t think I’ll finish it in time for our meeting, still, I will attend for love of dear friends and fabulous discussion):

John Adams by David McCullough

Next up, in no particular order…

A book that sounded intriguing, when I read a little review on the NPR website:

This Life is in Your Hands by Melissa Coleman

The eighth and latest in the Maisie Dobbs series — a series which I have enjoyed, and have read all the previous seven, but cannot recommend wholeheartedly, so don’t blame me if you read it and don’t like it.  🙂

A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear

Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
