Joining in withÂ Ginny at Small ThingsÂ yarn along this week.
Or in my case, should I just say book along? Â I haven’t had a chance to knit in the last two weeks. Â It seems winter lurgies have been running rampent in our house these last couple of weeks. Â Scarlett was the first, followed by Jairah then Greg. Â Thankfully Tenneille seems to have missed this round!
I fell victim earlier this week too, which means I have been trying to take it easy as being the mama, I don’t really have time to take off to be sick (as I’m sure is the same for all of you). Â The good news is, that I have had lots of early nights which means I can read more. Â I have read three books which ironically have all been Amish themed. Â The first book was The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. Â I really liked it and found it hard to put down. Â It was an easy read and I read in in only a few days, just reading a page here and there. Â I love all things home birth related and that is what attracted me to the book in the first place. Â I recommend it.
I found a sequel to The Amish Midwife called, The Amish Nanny by the same authors as above and well, I had to read it too. Â It followed on quite well from the first book and again I read it in a few days. Â I noticed that Mindy has written a few other books, so I might have to check them out too. Â Or if you have read any of her other books, I would like to know your recommendations.
The lastest book was a $1.99 kindle special called The Hope of Refuge, by Cindy Woodsmall. Â I found myself yet again sucked into the story and just finished it tonight. Â I loved the characters and the storyline. Â There are another two books in the series which I am tempted to buy. Â Although I can see how one would get addicted to buying books this way!
I will admit now that kindle is my secret to getting books read quickly. Â I often have small snippets of time while waiting at school to pick up Scarlett or in between jobs while the kids are happily playing. Â I can lay in bed with the light out and still be able to read. Oh yes, kindle is my friend!
I can’t wait to see what you have all been crafting and/or reading this week.
