July'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. July's Book of the Month is: 

Published as: Back When we Were Grownups in July 2001
Publisher: Ballantine Books

Birth Name: Anne Tyler
Born: 25 October 1941 in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Canonical Name: Anne Tyler
Pseudonyms: None

Back When we Were Grownups: A Novel by Anne Tyler was the thirty-ninth book that I read in 2010. I have had this book on my TBR shelf since July 1, 2010 and it took me six days to read. This book is a definite keeper for me.

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
