A Flurry of Comments

Well, that was fun! If I had known that Juice Plus would stir up a record-breaking number of comments (for Homecake), I would've mentioned it sooner! Hey, where are all the comments for book recommendations? Thanks goes to my sister in law for her participation because at this point, I need a good book way more than Juice Plus.

I mentioned Elizabeth Berg in the comments section of the post asking for reading suggestions. If you haven't read her, you should. She's very consistent and a pleasure to read. I really like a lot of her stuff, but what stands out for me are her coming of age novels - especially True to Form.

And another great book that I can easily recommend - especially to stay-at-home moms or dads or anyone with young children in their life - is Believing It All: What my children taught me about trout fishing, jelly toast, and life by Marc Parent. This is a beautiful book of sweet essays. Just trust me and get yourself a copy so you can pass it on to a friend when you're finished.

Ok, that's it for tonight. Now it's your turn!

Thanks for the ideas, Emme! I just put a hold on Poisonwood and Second Glance so I'm feeling flush with reading material again! By the way, if you like murder mysteries (which I'm not especially fond of) you should try In a Dry Season by Peter Robinson. This was one murder mystery I couldn't put down!
