I know, I know, my posting has been severely lacking. Of course, I have all kinds of excellent excuses (don't we all?), but the best is various mouth procedures, namely, a complicated capping. This, of course, left me quite crabby and in need of some bookish refreshment. Luckily, before I let for my appointment in the morning, I put out a stack of books that I wanted to read. The following is my list:
1. Mary Lou: A Story of Divine Corners by Faith Baldwin-A charming, old-smelling book. According to GoodReads, it's the third in a series and I know absolutely nothing about it. Google searches keep coming up empty. You know you're reading an obscure book when the internet is incapable of turning up anything. So I'm very curious to see what this book ends up being about-and if it's any good.
2. Pat of Silver Bush by L.M. Montgomery-I know this one is going to be a treat! It's an L.M. Montgomery book I've never read. So I'm guaranteed that it's going to be good.
3. Four-Party Line by Dorothy Gilman Butters-I got this book from a pile of old books at a church library sale. It's titled, "A Junior Novel", so I think this must be the precursor to YA fiction. It's about four teenaged girls who get jobs working as operators for a telephone company. The story covers the four girls' struggles and triumphs as they navigate their life both at work and at home. I started this book and it is a really fun read.
So that's what's on my book stack! Tell me, what shall I read first?
