Happy Sunday to you!
I’d like to announce the winner of the blog birthday giveway….congrats Elizabeth! Please email your shipping information to jenna[at]eatliverun.com and I’ll get your book right to you!
In other news, I was up quite late last night with my nose in this book:
I couldn’t put it down for the life of me and the only reason I didn’t finish it completely was because I wanted to have something to read on my kindle while I wait for my love at the airport today.
If you haven’t read this, I highly (!!) recommend it. It’s about a young white girl who ends up living as an indentured servant amongst slaves in the late eighteenth century. It’s a sweeping, page-turning saga!
I also finished reading this last week:
I had so many responses when I mentioned I was reading this that I knew I had to put it on the blog! This was a great book…dark…but wonderful. It was beautifully written and tragic at the same time. You all have been telling me I had to read it now for almost a year, so it was one of my first purchases when I got my kindle! I read it in two days and am still thinking about it two weeks later.
I’ve always been interested in Holocaust literature and would recommend this book to pretty much anyone who loves a good read. I think it should be required reading for high school seniors!
Lastly, I read this entire book on my six hour flight the other day!
Sooooo goooooooood (insert little squeal)!!!!!!!!
I love Francine Rivers and this was one of my favorite books of hers. It was the perfect book for a long flight and I literally read without stopping for six.hours.straight. This is the second book in a two-book series, but I don’t even think you need to read the first one to really “get” and enjoy this one.
It’s light, it’s easy to read and it’s a page turner!
I know I’ve hemmed and hawed over the kindle so much lately (I promise this isn’t a sales pitch and I’m not really selling kindles out my back door), but having one really has made my life so much easier! I was able to travel across the country with a library full of brand new books and not have to worry about finishing one on the plane and not having a back-up.
It’s so easy to have all your books in one place and carry them with you wherever you go. Since who doesn’t carry books with them everywhere they go?
Enjoy your Sunday, my friends!
