Good Monday morning to you! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a great weekend. We had absolutely beautiful weather here, and enjoyed a lot of time outside. I love Spring!! Speaking of which, I joined the Spring Reading Thing 2010 challenge this weekend, which I hope will give me more motivation to read, read, read!
I completed a couple of books last week. The first was Our Promised Land by Michael T. Darkow. This was a wonderful novel about two families ~ one Jewish and one Palestinian ~ and their experiences during the formation of the nation of Israel. I'm giving away two copies of this book, so be sure to enter my giveaway. It ends tonight at 10:00pm EDT.
The other book I completed last week is Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez. This was another great book about four slave women who accompany their masters to a summer retreat in an area of the North that is free. You can click on the title to see my review.
I also published my weekly What My Children Are Reading recap.
A Hundred Feet Over Hell: Flying with the Men of the 220th Recon Airplane Company Over I Corps and the DMZ, Vietnam 1968-1969 by Jim Hooper
The Piano Teacher: A Novel by Janice Y. K. Lee ~ whenever it's finally available from the library!
