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: 

A Friend of the Family: A Novel by Lauren Grodstein
Published as: A Friend of the Family in November 2009
Publisher: Algonquin Books

Birth Name: Lauren Grodstein
Born: 19 November 1975 in Brooklyn, New York

Canonical Name: Lauren Grodstein
Pseudonyms: Jessie Elliot

A Friend of the Family by Lauren Grodstein was the sixty-seventh book that I read in 2013. I have had this book on my TBR shelf since June 1, 2013 and it took me two days to read. It is definitely a 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! :)
