Summer reading--what's in your TO READ pile?--Lenora Worth
Okay, we all love to lounge around (hopefully by some water)on a long hot summer day? That got me to wondering what everyone's reading these days. I have so many good books in my growing pile and I'm sure I'll read each and every one of them by summer's end!!! First off, the second book in my friend Judy Christie's adorable series set in Green, Louisiana. This one is "Goodness Gracious Green." Can't wait to settle down without interruption and delve into that one. Loved her first one--Gone to Green. Also, you need to grab a copy of Leann Ellis's cute, quirky "Once in a Blue Moon." Leann has the strangest sense of humor in her writing, but underneath it all she also gives us a wonderful spiritual message. Great reading. Fran McNabb's "On the Crest of a Wave" is an Avalon Historical that sounds wonderful. And Stephanie Grace Whitson's "Sixteen Brides" sounds very intriguing. Not to mention all the great Love Inspired Suspense books coming out during the summer. You can see our covers here on our side bar. With all these great books around, who has time to actually write one? Oh, I do. Must find time. I want mine out there with all the rest and believe it or not, I have seen a couple of my books being read on the beach. Okay, mostly by my friends, but still ... it's fun to know someone is spending down time with something I wrote. And speaking of beaches, please keep our beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches in your prayers. We'll all lose something very precious if the oil spill in the gulf makes it to our beaches. And that's not just about being a tourist enjoying a swank high-rise condo. It's about people's lives and jobs, it's about the people who died on that oil rig and it's about protecting God's beautiful world. Wherever you are this summer, I hope you find some time to read a good book. And send up a prayer of thanks that we have that freedom.
