Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Blue and Comfort

I've read BLUE and looking forward to reading COMFORT. Blue spoke to me because I grew up in a place where we were forced to take polio naps in the heat of the day. And we were scared out of our wits of the disease, which had struck a classmate who lived on my street. Swimming pools and picture shows (that would be a movie theater to the uninformed) were closed. This is a terrific story, based on a true place, that middle readers will like.

Check out the book giveaway on author Joyce Hostetter's website. Here's the cover of the new book. Looks interesting, no?

Fun surprise to find Comfort and Blue here.

I'll be doing another giveaway soon. One that does not involve a charity fundraiser.
