Respite Wednesday



"O for a Booke and a shadie nook,
eyther in-a-doore or out;
With the grene leaves whisp'ring overhede,
or the Streete cryes all about.
Where I maie Reade all at my ease,
both of the Newe and Olde;
For a jollie goode Booke whereon to looke
is better to me than Golde."

~~For a Catalogue of Second-hand Books~~
John Wilson (1785-1854)

Kingdom Come, and something else which is bizzare and not real good but I keep reading hoping for it to get better...its called Darwinia. and I just finished Duma Key by Stephen King it was pretty good.

I have all my original copies af the Laura Ingalls set and read them every so often... I was tickled pink to visit her homes in Mansfield Mo a few years back.

I love to read :)

fantastic post!

Matilda is a favorite here, as is the BFG. :)

Reading, um, Reading the Bible With Heart and Mind, by Longman, and The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, by Dr. Laura (which is actually quite good). Not quite getting into A Long Discipline in the Same Direction (or something like that), by Eugene Peterson. Once done with Longman's I'm sure I'll get there.

I am currently reading an inspirational series by Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley…Redemption Series and now am in the Sunrise Series. So far I’m in the thirteenth book in the series! I think there is one more book...then I take a break! :-)

I enjoyed your blog! Blessings on you!

your blog :-)

Really, my stack of books just taunts me and the walls of the house are closing in on me so my pleasure (for this ten minutes I have) is to read blogs. You gave me poetry, I feel like it was time well spent :-)

I've been reading a lot about the Amish lately since we visited Northern Indiana and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Amish communities this spring. Both sites were chosen by others so it was quite a "coincidence", most likely brought about by the God of all coincidences.

I have a huge stack of books I want to re-read soon. When the weather becomes cooler and the days are shorter, we enter my favorite reading season.

So many books surround me and I am still catching up on all the travel books I purchased while on my recent trip to Europe! I have time to view my photos and go back to the book and read more about where I was...sure wish I kew then what I know now..my touring around would have been so much more enjoyable! Love the poem you posted!

Terri Blackstock fiction. She's from Mississippi. She writes a good story, predictable but she is a master of the individual page. she can write a page turner. I guess the good thing about being predictable is it turns out like you want it too. I usually don't go for this, it's just been light entertainment. This week it's collecting DUST.
So is Gentian Hill about Gentian violet and something medical? "hee hee
I love the photo. what's the mini scientist up too?
