2013 Book List

Reading is one of my favorite hobbies.  I like it as much as I do scrapbooking or gardening or any of the other very exciting activities in my life! lol  I feel fortunate to belong to a great Book Club as it forces me to read genre's outside of my norm and I love the lively discussions that result from our picks. (The food and wine we enjoy at our meetings aren't bad either!)

I like to keep track of the books I read on the side-bar of my blog and at the end of the year I copy the list into a blog post.

Clearly I had lots of time to read!

I was fortunate enough to receive a couple of good books for Christmas, so I already have something to start off the new year with!  And in case you are wondering, that is not a photo of my reading space.  But it is a photo of a reading space that I would love to have someday!


  1. Wow, amazing list Joanne. I haven't been as active as I would like with my reading. I will keep an eye on your reading list throughout the year for when I need a new selection. Happy reading!

  2. THAT is a lot of books...which ones do you highly recommend?

  3. Lynette, Karen Kingsbury is one of my all-time favorite authors. Any of her books will be highly enjoyed. Beverly Lewis is also great - her stories normally take place in Amish country in Pennsylvania. They are lovely Christian based stories that truly take you back to a simpler time. Diane Chamberlain is a new author for me and I am enjoying her books very much. Have fun reading :)
