Wow, I really hit the jackpot the last two days. I love to read, especially lighter mysteries and good old fashioned, nice stories like Jan Karon's Mitford series, Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove and Blossom Street series or historical fiction such as Philippa Gregory's English queen books and Bernard Cornwell's Saxon series filled with Danes invading Britan. I picked up an Agatha Christie book, one I read years ago. I had almost the entire series and gave them away. How I would love to have the entire collection in hardback! Timeless.
Our library had it's annual book sale and this was week one's purchases. Hardcovers $1, paperback $0.50. I have the mysteries covered in addition to an author who published the Thrush Green series under the pen name of Miss Read, this particular one in 1959. I thought it would be a nice book.
A huge surprise for me! A co-worker stopped by and gave me these four quilting books. She was cleaning out her library and thought I might like them. She's an accomplished quilter and makes many of the quilts for office baby showers or to auction off for fundraisers.
What a great stash! I'll have plenty to keep me busy this summer!
I also signed up for the next block of the month through my local quilt shop. This one is much easier than my last one (that remains unfinished). I spoke to another woman in the store who told me she signs up for all the BOMs and hasn't finished a one yet! LOL The fabric is by Marcus Brothers and is called Amish with a Twist.
