Bookish Answers



A Woman Reading by Candlelight
Peter Ilstead
Danish artist

I read a great post this morning over at Inspiration Café this morning, A Winter Blues Solution by Marci at Stone Cottage Adventures.  Take a look.  She asked four questions about reading.  Here are my answers.
1.  I am currently reading Carolina Gold by Dorothy Love.  Look for a review in January.  I've also started reading a non-fiction book, Jesus on Every Page.

2.  Favorite line- who can choose one?  Here's a favorite that I truly need to implement in my life- 
"Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success, in spite of poverty."
~Louisa May Alcott Marmee's Advice Little Women

3.  I've reviewed 28 books this year.  I've read/listened to the Bible through three times with YouVersion.com's reading plans.  I love to check those boxes. ~smile~  I don't know how many books I've read altogether.  I used to set a goal to read 50 books a year, but with the extra Bible I've been reading and listening to, I just don't have the time. 

4.  I think Anne of Green Gables was an excellent movie adaptation.  I was pleased with Little Women (Winona Ryder version).  I think that the Percy Jackson movies have been very disappointing.  My children talked about their disappointment with Sea of Monsters for days.

Go check out Marci's post, talk back to her, then I'd love you to share your answers here, too.

Blessings,
Laura
Happy at Home

    I hope you got your package as my sister's took well over a week to get to her. It was her Birthday, she turned 60, glad she was the older sister:)
    Happy New Year!

Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
