1. Mrs. Lieutenant - Phyllis Zimbler Miller
2. Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior - Ori and Rom Brafman (I liked this one so much that I plan to reread it, so I'll review it in the future . . . assuming my husband ever gives it back)
3. The Well-Fed Self-Publisher - Peter Bowerman
4. Simple Genius (audio) - David Baldacci - didn't care for it
5. Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert - really enjoyed this one
6. Overcoming Hurts and Anger - Dwight L. Carson, M.D. - interesting book from my mother's collection
7. Facts the Historians Leave Out: A Confederate Primer - John S. Tilley - very interesting history told from the Confederate viewpoint; also from my mother's shelves
8. In the Land of Dreamy Dreams - Ellen Gilchrist - excellent; hope to find time to review this one - read for the Southern Reading Challenge
9. Return from Tomorrow - George Ritchie - a little hard to swallow
10. Early Widow - Mary Jane Worden - gut-wrenching, but well-written
11. The Queen of Sleepy Eye - Patti Hill (ARC -- thanks, Brittanie!) - very good, especially loved the ending
12. The Book of Dahlia - Elisa Albert - (ARC from Simon & Schuster) - good job of portraying the human side of cancer but the heroine was just nasty, so I can't say I loved it
13. Human Voices - Penelope Fitzgerald - excellent and very funny, although I had trouble getting used to the author's style
14. Sermons & Soda Water - John O'Hara - loved his writing style, but the characters were very political and I don't know much about politics of the 30's, so it became a bit tiresome
15. Entropy - Anthony Lawrence Gordon
16. Letters of a Woman Homesteader - Elinore Pruitt Stewart
I didn't quite finish the second audio I listened to, Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne. It's very good, though, and I'll finish it the next time I have to drive a long distance.
Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser (just arrived -- thanks, Brittanie!)
The Questory of Root Karbunkulus by Kamilla Reid (watch for sticky post giveaway of an autographed copy of this book -- coming next)
Eldest is coming for the weekend and we'll be helping his girlfriend move to her new home in Madison, MS (just an hour's drive from us -- might be seeing a bit more of the eldest in the coming year). Also, we'll be giving him our toaster or buying him a new one.
Note to my sister: A toaster will not sell a house. Just had to get that off my chest. Sister doesn't read blogs. I should probably be grateful.
Happy Independence Day to readers in the U.S.! And, a Happy Belated Canada Day to our neighbors in Canada!
