Bookish Answers

A Woman Reading by Candlelight

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'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.

Happy at Home


  1. Hello Laura, I am going to check out that site
    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!
    I thought the yellow fit your sunshine attitude!

  2. Hi Roxy,

    I did get the package. I opened it on Christmas morning. What a treat! Thank you so very much! I truly felt blessed and spoiled.



Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
