The News You've All Been Waiting For:

You may remember 

I'm certain you do,
because I know all four of you 
hang on my every word.

Or not.

Well, I finally made my decision
and was able to go to the bookstore.

Three they had in stock,
two she had to order in for me.
They just came in this week,
and I'm so glad to have them all in my hands!

And now...
what you've all been waiting for:

My Treat(s)
(in no particular order)

Amish Peace by Suzanne Woods Fisher
I love the byline:  "Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World"

The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
I've always loved this book and wanted to own it for myself.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I've never read this book, and would like to have read many more classics than I have.
I'm slowly building my library of the greats.

The Three R's by Ruth Beechick
You knew I'd get a homeschooling book, right? 
I mean, like, duh.
It's my passion and I love it
 so of course I'd get {yet another} book about it!
This one has been on "my list" for many years.
Now I finally have it!

Lastly, How to Talk Minnesotan by Howard Mohr
Hilarious. If you live here, or in a neighboring state,
you really should read this book.
Be ready to laugh at yourself!

Thanks for all your input
I never get to have $$ just for me,
so I wanted to be sure I got books I really wanted.
I didn't know where to start;
you helped get the ball rolling!

p.s. I still have $3.80 left on my gift card.
I'll be able to get another little something,
and only have to pay a little out-of-pocket!
I love books!


  1. good choices... if we lived closer we could start our own library. My dream house has a large room that is just a library, 4 walls of books with comfy chairs and reading lamps, I think that would be heavenly!!

  2. Well...I am happy you got your books ...I have to say I thought you were going to announce baby #9!! I was sure hoping....=)

  3. I got all excited because that's what I thought she was announcing too :) ~Becca

  4. I love Pride and Prejudice...Jane Austin books are wonderful.

  5. I'm with the others, I thought you were announcing a new baby! :) Of course books are special too and money to yourself, but a baby would have been wonderful!

  6. A baby would have been great news.

  7. Great Choices! I think I may have to read Amish Peace -- it looked really good. Nice seeing you today!
