Musing Mondays -- March 31, 2014

I am currently reading The Master Quilter by Jennifer Chiaverini.  This is the sixth book in the Elm Creek Quilt Series and I am already unable to put it down.  I absolutely love this series and I think part of it is the setting.  It is set in the small college town of Waterford, Pennsylvania and, even though I have never visited Pennsylvania, I identify with it because part of my family came from Pennsylvania.  The  idea of a huge mansion, a historical home being turned into a quilt camp with lovely grounds is right up my alley.   I also have a great admiration for the main character, Sylvia Compson.  While we aren't even close in age, I admire her spirit and would like to be like her when I get to her age.  So far this series has been really enjoyable and I don't think this particular book is going to be any different.

This last week I went on a bit of a splurge with book shopping.  I have a love/hate relationship with my Nook but one day I decided to love it and set about exploring the Barnes and Noble site, concentrating on the Nook Book section.  I picked up several books on their "under $5" section.

These books are:

Relatively Dead  Sheila Connolly
Firefly Lane  Kristin Hannah
The House Girl  Tara Conklin
The Norfolk Mystery - Series #1  Ian Samson
Asylum Madeleine Roux

That should be enough to keep me going for a while -- not to mention the 75 unread books on my bookshelf.  So, yeah, guess I better go get started! Have a Happy Monday!
