February'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. February's Book of the Month is: 

Published as: The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story in October 1983
Publisher: Hamish Hamilton

Birth Name: Susan Elizabeth Hill
Born: 5 February 1942 in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England

Canonical Name: Susan Hill
Pseudonyms: None

The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill was the eleventh book that I read in 2013. Mareena originally picked up a copy of this book for herself from our local library's perpetual book sale that we went to on February 2, 2013. I "persuaded" Mareena to let me read this book first after she told me that she had been looking for a physical copy of this book for about a year and a half, even though she bought an ebook copy about a year ago.

This book was the first book that I read after we returned from the library. It took me one day to read and then I happily passed it on to Mareena to read. It's a definite keeper for both of us! Now we are waiting to receive the DVD of The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe (minus the glasses!) to see how the book was interpreted. It should arrive in a week or so.

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! :)
