Yesterday's winner of the Captain's Hat drawing has been posted (if it wasn't you, try again... I'm going to give another ebook copy of GOLD TRAP away, today)...
In honor of my wonderful delight in choosing good books to read this summer, I am doubly excited to be taking part in the John 3:16 Network Blog Hop. This is aside from the fact that I am a member, and a blog participant, and hosting a drawing and giveaway, right here on my own blog (rules and prizes on my sidebar). What I am talking about now, though, is my own hunt for some good summer reading.
While I don't stop working entirely during the summer, I do cut way back on the work load, in order to take some time out for divine appointments, and adventuring to mysterious places. As well as some long awaited reading for pure enjoyment. For this, I have been collecting books all year long. Most of which have little to do with my own writing, and much to do with my many various interests in life.
Like how do country people in the south of France make homemade yogurt? Or when is the best time to sail through "The Minkies" without ending up on the rocks. What gave Sarah Bernhardt the courage to go head to head with a Nazi commander in a life or death situation and survive only because of divine intervention? I wonder about these things. To tell you the truth, I delight in them. Because I have brought something back into my own life from each of the entertaining books that has enriched my own home, as well as who I am as a person.
Like my favorite dessert cake. The recipe for which I got from a peasant woman who lived in Brittany during the Edwardian Era. I remember her every time I make that cake, and it is one of life's small pleasures for me. My life (like most) is made up of many small things. Taking the initiative to choose what to add to my collection of small things has made me feel like a very rich woman. So, enjoy yourselves, dear readers, as you hop along looking for something to add to your own collection of small things. I know I certainly will. Oh, yes, and don't forget...
