Book Worm: What I read at the beach

Allyn and I are both book worms. I’m kind of surprised we haven’t already posted something about books and/or reading. The one thing I was most looking forward to during vacation was the ability to sit for hours and read.

Pre-trip I ordered a ton of books from my Amazon Wish List. I figured 6 was a good round number. I managed to finish 4 and started in on 5, which wasn’t too bad for me.

Here’s what I read:

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
It has been on my to-read list for the last couple of years. With the movie being out, I was finally spurred on to read it. I’m glad I did. It was one of those books where I was totally immersed in the time period, the place, and the characters.

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
A well written love story featuring a young girl, a mourning mother, and an old man. I’d recommend this to anyone, including husbands.

The Brontes went to Woothworths by Rachel Ferguson
A whimsical story of three sisters. This lighty and frothy novel is the perfect beach read. Allyn, you need to read this if you haven’t already. It reminds me a good deal of our high school adventures.

Cooking for Mr. Latte: A Food Lover’s Courtship, with Recipes by Amanda Hesser
A sweet memoir of courtship and food, packed with delicious recipes. It made me swear to start throwing more dinner parties.

What have you read lately?

  1. Followed you home from your comment on PW’s website. First post I came to here was the one on books. Ah, sister of the mind-and-preferences, I have found you. The only way I found time for enough reading was to retire. I am a professional loll-er, now.
