Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook: Two Hundred Gourmet & Homestyle Recipes for the Food Allergic Family by Cybele Pascal. Sandy told me about this book, so I checked it out. I'm looking forward to making Sammy a real birthday cake this year.

Cell by Stephen King. I haven't read Stephen King since high school, but this one seemed interesting. Reminded me a bit of The Stand, although not as good. I wasn't crazy about the ending. I do not like wondering what happened. I took my valuable time to read your story, please give me some resolution.

No, I did not quit reading books in March. I just haven't updated in that long! I doubt I will remember all the books checked out since than but I will try...

Rainbox six
by Tom Clancy Didn't finish this one, although it started out good. Just didn't have time with the move and all.

The Betrayal by Beverly Lewis I read the first book in the Abram's daughters series a long time ago. I got tired of waiting for #2 to be in at the library so I ordered it off ebay for a couple bucks. Good.

The Sacrifice by Beverly Lewis Go figure. Number 3 was in the library first time I checked. Good

The Prodigal
by Beverly Lewis Bought it. Didn't feel like waiting. Good

The Revelation
by Beverly Lewis. Again, I ordered this from Ebay. Still waiting.

The Storekeeper's Daughter by Wanda E. Brunstetter Another series about an Amish woman, but different author. Just started this and so far is good.

Allergy Shots by Robert B. Litman, M.D Medical drama. Fast moving, but a little crude at times.

Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Wiener. I have seen so much raving about this author on different blogs that I thought I would give her a try. It was okay, but really not as great as others made it sound.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I have actually never read this book yet. I really want to see the movie, but want to read the book first. I have waited and waited for it to be available at the library, but finally caved and bought it. I started it today and already love it.

Myth, Lies, Downright Stupidity: Get Out the Shovel--Why Everything you Know is Wrong
by John Stossel. This book was great! Just like his first one. Schools should start using this as a text to teach free market principles. He has such a great way of explaining how a free market works, something many American's don't grasp. Also, he is a Libertarian.

The Baby Book by William and Martha Sears. I didn't really look at this because most of the info can be found at askdrsears.com (one of my favorite websites). Jeremiah had mentioned he wanted to see the book so I checked it out.

Postsecrets by Frank Warren. I check out the website every Sunday night, so when I saw this popular book available I checked it out. Extremely interesting.

There are a few sewing books that I can't remember the titles, and one about the history of alternative medicine in the U.S which I can't remember the title. And I'm sure I'm missing several more.
