  5. I'm not one for talking on the phone...for the most part. I don't fear it...so I wonder why she does.

  9. Great post! Looks interesting and the cover art is cool. Really draws you in and causes you to think about loneliness, isolation, etc. Happy Reading!

  10. What an interesting point about the phone ring! I loved it as a teenager too but now it mostly means something's gone wrong. This sounds like a good read.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
