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:

Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin
Published as: Rosemary's Baby in March 1967
Publisher: Random House

Birth Name: Ira Levin
Born: 27 August 1929 in The Bronx, New York City, New York
Died: 12 November 2007 in Manhattan, New York City, New York

Canonical Name: Ira Levin
Pseudonyms: None

Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin was the thirty-ninth book that I read in 2011. I picked this book up from a Library Book Sale that Mareena and I went to in July of 2011. This book took me three days to read and it is a definite keeper for me! Mareena and I have both seen the movie Rosemary's Baby starring Mia Farrow - separately, and together - but neither one of us had actually read the book until I acquired it in July of 2011.

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! :)
