August’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. August’s Book of the Month is: 

  Blessings by Belva Plain

Published as: Blessings in July 1989
Publisher: Dell 

Birth Name: Belva Offenberg

Born: 9 October 1915 in New York City, New York 
Died: 12 October 2010 in Short Hills, New Jersey

Blessings by Belva Plain was the forty-sixth book that I read in 2010. I have had this book on my TBR shelf since March 1, 2009, although I gave away that original copy to Mareena’s best friend on  August 1, 2010. Mareena reacquired another copy for me from Bookmooch and the reread took me five days. This book is definite keeper for me! 🙂
