To this day, my cousin makes fun of me for climbing up our front yard tree for an afternoon read when she visited us over the summer. (Wait. She teases me for crocheting in that tree. Fortunately, I don't recall it quite that way, so let's just say I was reading. Selective memory is a wonderful gift).
While living in Chattanooga, I would make a quick drive up the mountain and sit on the wall at Signal Point, engrossed in the latest read. The view beyond my book was breathtaking and the gentle breeze inspired me to stay a while.
Now, I'll snuggle up on the couch, the porch or next to my honey with eager eyes, scanning the page with anticipation for what happens next.
Ahhh, I still love a good book.
This summer I joined a book club small group through our church. A group of women, gathered over good food and chatting the night away about plot, characters and life application is just what this bookworm needs.
First up, we are reading Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I must admit, I finished it a tad early and cried myself to sleep - an absolutely beautiful story!
Do you have any suggestions for our next book? I recently enjoyed The Help by Kathryn Stockett and can't wait for the movie in August.
Have a great weekend and a happy 4th!
