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

A Map of the World  by Jane Hamilton
  Published as: A Map of the World in May 1994
Publisher: Doubleday

Birth Name: Jane Hamilton
Born: 13 July 1957 in Oak Park, Illinois

Canonical Name: Jane Hamilton
Pseudonyms: None

A Map of the World by Jane Hamilton was the forty-seventh book that I read in 2016. I have had this book on my TBR shelf since June 7, 2016 although my first reading of this particular book took place about a decade ago. My reread of it took me sixteen days to read. This book is definitely still 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! :)
