Letters from a Hill Farm
I bet you are excited about all of these! Yea for some good reads to come!
Kay, I am so, so thrilled to read each of these books. Cool weather, a chair by the woodstove, black dogs at my feet, and books to read. Ah, bliss.
Let's see, Letters to Julia right before I start to cook supper for inspriation; An Irish Country Courtship for that favorite reading hour, nine thirty in the evening when all is still in the house. That is unless a racoon wakes the dog up.xx
So funny. I was just this second looking at the Julia book on Amazon. I lose hours on that site on Sunday afternoons!
I am looking forward to the new Jan Karon book as much as I am looking forward to the next Harry Potter movie! An Irish Country Courtship looks very interesting as well. Hmm, I might be doing a lot of reading this winter!
Please let us know what you think of these after reading them! I will make a trip to the library! Excited about the Jan Karron one!
I have already placed holds on the Karon and Taylor books...can't wait!I'll have to look into the other two...thanks for the tips :)Have a great weekNiki
Hi Nan. I've always loved your sidebar and re-read it almost every time I drop by. Today, the quote about farming makes me want to tell you something that you probably already know. Yesterday we visited Monticello (my blog is running a week behind) -- it is such a beautiful home and grounds. We learned that he was most proud of being a farmer! That's what he really considered himself. On the census form, that's what he called himself (he was vice president at the time, having already written the Declaration of Independence!)
Nan, what a great group of books!! Happy Reading!!
Good for you Nan! I discovered this Spring that Jan Karon had been to Ireland so she could write a book....should be interesting!And the others are new to me but thanks for the heads up!Joanne
Looks like some great winter reading! The Julia Child book is one that I'd love to read. The other three will have to wait until I read the earlier titles in those series!
Julie, I love your reading scheme!Pamela, that is quite amazing! I remember in Julie & Julia when Julia is waiting for Avis to arrive and J. says she has never met her - they've been pen pals all these years. A little like bloggers!Karin, I adore the Irish Country series. I've written about all the books if you are interested in learning more. And I can't wait to read about Father Tim and Cynthia in Ireland - finally!Linda, she can't write fast enough for me! I love her books so much.Niki, I'm so excited about them all!Oh, Sallie, that is just great! I'd love to visit. Have you ever read a book called Dear Mr. Jefferson: Letters from a Nantucket Gardener by Laura Simon? I learned so much about TJ, the farmer/gardener from this wonderful book. I've read it several times.Sherri, I sure look forward to them!Joanne, I think you would enjoy the Irish Country series. This is the fifth.Les, I love those three series, and am so looking forward to all these books. Of course, since I've posted this collection, I've found some others. I should do a regular posting of Coming Attractions.:<)
I hadn't seen that Julia Child book before. I must hunt it down - it looks intriguing.
Nice to hear from you, Karla! I'm excited about the letters.
They all look and sound great and thanks to you I'm hooked on the Irish series!!!
Staci, isn't it just so great!!
I'm looking forward to the Julia Child letters too. Some of her corres. was quoted in a bio I'm reading (by Laura Shapiro) -- she's very inspirationall, not to mention funny! (Thanks for visiting, too!)Audrey
Audrey, did you see Julie & Julia? As I wrote to Pamela, there was a scene in the film when Julia C. was waiting for Avis to arrive. They had never met - were pen pals, much like bloggers today. I'm going to check into the LS book. I have one by her called Perfection Salad which I want to read soon.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
