Wonderful, Wonderful Books!

  • The written word teaches, it takes us on great adventures, it inspires, blesses, encourages and challenges us. Throughout last year I read some wonderful books. I've been adding them to a list on my sidebar throughout the year, and before deleting it and starting a new one, I thought I'd post it to my blog. Let me know if there are any titles you're interested in, would like a review on, or would like to know more about! Oh, and Happy New Year everyone! Christmas and holiday posts / photos coming up!

Oh my goodness! More books to look for at the library!
I wanted to tell you I think of you often when I am musing about schooling, which is often lately.
Your comments on my blog have soothed me more than you can know.
Be well and happy new year!

Love the new family photo Saminda and the black and white one down further. Were they only recently taken? Could you blog about them please as I wanted to have a closer look but it would not let me.
And by the way that is an impressive list on books!
