trying to read while cow's are giving birth!

i finally wrapped up, "the other bolyen girl," while i was at the fair yesterday. read it in between waiting for tommie's rabbit showmanship and breed classes and barn duty. we were there from 8 am until 8 at night. it's not as easy as one might think, that is... to read historical fiction from the 1500's, while lambs were baaaaaing, turkey's gobbling and roosters bellowing, cow's mooing and oh yeah, cows giving birth... click here to see cow-birthing pics, that i took. warning: we were up close and personal... pictures might be upsetting to weak tummies. now, back to books.... there was nothing i didn't like about this 630 page book. plain and simple... i love historical fiction. after finishing boleyn and the author's notes, i pulled from my backpack, an anita shreve novel, "the last time they met." although, not a historical fiction in anyway, i look forward to learning details about kenya and new vocab. i am knee-deep in novels... many i've picked up brand new from salvation army for just .25 ... like the ones pictured above. so..... you know the question's coming..... tell me, what is your nose buried in? leave a comment for all of us!

smile, wink, nod.

I just finished A Thousand Speldid Suns. Excellent, excellent book! I am now reading A Pocketful of Pinecones.

I am reading a book called A Bride in the Bargain, by Deanne Gist. It takes place in Seattle in the 1860's when they sent for mail order brides. Have just started, but I think it will be good. It has a humorous twist to it.
