Do you have any books that just make you smile when you read them, books that you just wanted to hug to your heart when you were finished with them? Let me know in the comments because these sorts of books are too infrequent in my life and I'd love to change that.
This week I didn't get a lot of reading in but my bookish travels took me to a remote Polynesian island where seven people trying to hide from life come together and to the Natchez Trace where a woman walking the Trace and her elderly father providing support try to repair their relationship. I am still stuck in the supposedly humorous world of professional athletes and I am also moving between a POW camp in WWII Germany and the rural English home of the prisoner and his wife. Where did your reading travels take you this week?
