Our Library Visit For July

Hello Everyone! How are you on this fine Friday? I'm doing just fine. :) So, for the first time this year Mom and I went to our local library and bought books at the library book sale. :) I think we both went slightly nuts! :) We wound up buying three boxes of books and had to have them wheeled out to our friend's car on a hand truck! :)

Neither of us had been to the library in seven months because we had instituted a voluntary book buying ban on ourselves in an effort to whittle our separate TBR piles to more manageable levels. It was working out very well for both of us until today. :) We went to the library at 12:00 P. M. and spent an hour and a half there. We loved it! :)

We bought 51 hardcovers and 39 paperbacks between us and spent $70 altogether. Now the only problem is that I can't decide which book to start reading.

May you read well and often

Jennifer AlLee - The Mother Road

2. The Mother Road by Jennifer AlLee (2012)
Length: 224 pages
Genre: Christian Fiction
Started: 27 June 2012
Finished: 7 July 2012
Where did it come from? Many thanks to Tracee at Pump up Your Bookfor sending me a copy of this book to read.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 23 April 2012
Why do I have it? I enjoy Christian Fiction that has a suspenseful plot and Jennifer AlLee is a new author for me.

Within a week, best-selling author and marriage expert, Natalie Marino is dumped by her husband, receives a desperate phone call from her father and discovers that her estranged sister, Lindsay, is pregnant. A trip down Route 66 to visit their parents, may not be the most ideal bonding experience for the sisters, but it surely couldn't hurt either of them. Or so Natalie thinks, until their car and belongings are stolen and Lindsay's boyfriend begins to stalk them.

Will their trip down The Mother Road bring the sisters closer together, or will their next destination turn out ult…

Reading Wrap-up For June at Emeraldfire's Bookmark

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Emeraldfire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. Anyway, I started out June with about two hundred unread books lying around the house and ended the month with...umm...uncountable amounts of books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from Bookmoochand Paperback Swap and authors.
Let me try to break down the influx for you:
