October’s Book of the Month

Hello Everyone! I chose the picture posted above because it reminds me of reading to my daughter Mareena when she was little. Every afternoon until she was about eight or nine years old, we would take one of her books that she wanted to read or that she was reading and we would curl up together on my big bed. 

We would spend an hour or so reading a chapter of her book, and then take a nap together. Her absolutely favorite author at that time was an English author named Enid Blyton. Ahh, nice memories…

My picks for ‘Books of the Month’ will be decidedly more adult these days, but they will be from almost any genre. October’s Book of the Month is:

A Place Called Saturday by Mary Astor was the twenty-sixth book that I read in 2009. I had this book on my TBR pile since 14 October 2009. This book took me five days to read and was actually a reread for me from many years ago. I sent this book off to another good home on September 3, 2013!
