A Reading Stack

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?


  1. Aww! Sorry to hear you've been in some pain of late, CGrace!
    Thank goodness for wonderful books! The ones you've listed here sound quite intriguing...I haven't heard of Pat of Silver Bush, so I will definitely need to look it up...I am a big fan of L.M. Montgomery's writings:)
    Hmmm... I am doing lots of reading for school right now. We are studying China, so 'Mission to Cathay' and 'Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze' are the books I am currently reading. Good Wives is for the evenings when I can do pleasure reading...although all reading is great:)
    Have a blessed week further!
    Hugs to you,

    1. Those books about China sound great! Off to look at those...
