Interesting book so far... not what I usually read. Probalby would never pick it up in the store or library... but worth reading.

Last Week's Book - "Winter Birds" -

Just had to comment on the above mentioned book - in the good news category - if you did not read or perhaps are not in that book club - I would like to heartily suggest that you go back and read the 5 reads and if you are like me, you will be picking up the book from your library right away - could just as easily have been in the fiction category, I think, from what I have read so far - wonderfully written and wonderful book (in my opinion) - wanted to give you another chance if you missed the first time -

I only tried it because of a response in the forum that piqued my interest - and I am so glad I did - "Never judge a book by its cover or "category" -

Me Again -

Just had to report that I finished the book last nite - and it was wonderful to the end - and a most heartwarming end it was - if anyone did read the first part and felt it was depressing, let me assure you that it was not - I can't say enough about the writing style and the content of this book -

Merry Christmas to You All - Doris -
