What I'm reading

Covenant by Naomi Ragen
In view of the situation in the Middle East this book is especially poignant. I haven't read any of the other books by this author but I will look for and read some of her previous ones now.

Looking for Peyton Place by Barbara Delinsky
I like books by Delinsky - she writes about relationships. In this book it's the relationship and resentments between 3 sisters that interested me. With my Mom getting older and having some health issues I saw some parallels between the sisters in this book and my relationship with my 3 sisters.

The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver
The plot is somewhat odd but I like books by Kingsolver - I didn't realize until I wrote this post that this book is from 1998 - I'm not sure how I missed it when it first came out.

The Courts of Love: The Story of Eleanor of Aquitaine by Jean Plaidy
I like historical fiction - this is one of many written by Plaidy and I enjoyed it.

I've pickup Looking for Peyton Place a couple of times, just to put it back. I love Delinsky books but wasn't sure about that one. I'll have to pick it up now. Thanks!

Mary, how on earth can you read 4 books at one time and keep it all straight? LOL I'm one of those obsessed readers, when I start a book, I read, read, read until it's done. I don't get how people can take a month to read a book, a little every night. I'd have to re-read what I read the night before! :) My daughter just gave me the peyton place book last night and said I HAD to read it. She loved it, so am anxious to get started.
