  • I have just started reading the Mitford book series by Jan Karon. I accidently ran across it when I was going to take adriving trip by myself and went to the library to find a good book on CD. The first book is At Home in Mitford. If you can find the book on CD it is a great way to start the series. It is done by Focus on the Family Reader's Theater and it really brings the characters to life. I am in the second book now, A Light in the Window, and I can still hear their heart warming voices in my head from the CDs.

  • The Girls by Lori Lansens, Didn't I Feed You Yesterday by Laura Bennett (though if you are one of those uptight helicopter moms or you hate foul language, then that book is not for you)

  • No - sorry, it's called "The Magic of Ordinary Days"

  • I try to read often, to help encourage my boys to read (my oldest has to read 4 AR books per quarter for Language Arts).

    Last ones I've read: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire(Stieg Larsson), Velocity (Dean Koontz), Jurassic Park (Michael Crichton), Cat's Claw (Amber Benson). I also have a stash of old John Saul novels I got for free that I'm going through - but I'm finding his work rather formulaic and repetitive, rather like a male V.C. Andrews)
