Pilfering though antique stores, thrift shops and flea marks is something that I could spend a lot of time doing if given the opportunity. Granted, most of the things waiting to be dug through are junk, but from time to time you find a diamond in the ruff. Earlier this week, my future sister-in-law and I went hunting for a few rustic pieces for her wedding. My find of the week was these Reader's Digest books, all for a whopping dollar each. Three-dolla. Yes. When I showed Bryan, he in all seriousness told me he used to love to read these books when he was growing up. I bought them because I liked the cover colors and want to use them for decorating.
Reading is one of my favorite activities, thus I was thrilled to receive my Kindle for Christmas. Here are some of my most-recent reads.
My sister does not enjoy reading Nicholas Sparks' books because they all have a dramatic twist. That is exactly why I like reading them. I love a good cry over something heart-wrenching. In all honesty, I was a little disappointed in The Best of Me. It was a beautifully written book, but left me disappointed. I will not spoil this for those of you who have not read it, but for those of you who have read it, what did you think?
On the other hand, I have also just read Sparks' Safe Haven and loved it. Much better to my liking. Thoughts on this if you have read it?
Currently I am reading The Centurion's Wife by Janette Oke. According to my Kindle, I am 6% complete, and so far I really like it. Growing up I read all of Oke's books. I was thrilled when I ran across a few that I have not read. A Christian historical fiction book, I always enjoy reading what Oke has to offer her readers. If you are not familiar with her writing, I highly suggest picking up some of her books.
