These is my words

Are you looking for a great book to read, or perhaps a few good books? I love to read when I am not busy and especially like reading when we are traveling, it helps me sleep at night. On our recent trip to Connecticut I finished 3 books and started on a 4th....well, we were gone 10 days and it is a must that I have a book to read while flying (the perfect distraction). 

It is hard to name a favorite.....First is "These is my words" by Nancy Turner  This amazing story was her first published book. You can find the review here.


Ahh, the "Kitchen House" by Kathleen Grissom, I just loved this book! "a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, where love and loyalty prevail."  You can find the review here.

 "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein  "A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it." You can find the review here.

So here you have a few good reads to start off the new year. Let me know what you think of them. Get reading!  


  1. Kindred spirits here, Judy. I have to have a book going. It is a central part of me. I'm off for a few days on Wednesday, and half way through a book right now. So I'll definitely check out your your reading list!

  2. I hit the delete button instead of the publish.


    I love to read...hubby and I are constantly engrossed in our Kindles.I read "Art of Racing in the Rain". Have you read "Izzy & Lenore" by Jon Katz...he writes the most amazing books about his animals & his farm...I think you would enjoy them.
