What Do We Learn

Before I start, I wanted to share with you a picture of the afghan the Blog hop winner will receive. This afghan is baby pink and petal pink with a white trim done completely in open shell stitching. The lighting isn't the best but I think you will get the idea.We plan to hold another giveaway in February. Drop by and let me know if you would like another book and afghan or if you would like a book and gift card. If you, dear reader, have some other idea of a great giveaway, let us know. We love new ideas!

I have been doing some research on old books that I really enjoyed as a kid. In my travels I came across a few good reviews of many of the book I read. Among them were the books that came out of the Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm. You may know them as the Nancy Drew or the Bobbsey Twins series. The Hardy Boys was another series that came from Edward Stratemeyer's company.

Time and Love

Before Anne AfterI want to introduce you to an author who is new to me and maybe to you as well. After reading a book that he suggested to me (at another author’s signing party) I have to say I will be seeking out his other books for personal reading pleasure. The story, which I promised to review last week - ahh, you know, the holidays and traveling and such - is another well done time travel story. I’m sensing a new favorite sub-genre coming on!
