about a book to read??? hmm
how about listening to audio books while you sew? that's what I do! I love it.... the other day I listened to the girl with the dragon tattoo, my husband had seen the movie, so as I was listening we were comparing "notes" on it...
I can listen to crime stories, mysteries, romance- really anything. the only books I READ are quilt books! :-)
you have the word robot on BTW

Andrea said...

I'd love this! What a fun prize. I love that you included a book. I love reading and I'm always on the look out for a good book to read while I'm nursing. Recently I read through Absolute Surrender. It is a heavy read but a short book so it was a good balance for me. It really got me thinking about my spiritual life. Can't wait to see what everybody else recommends.

B Greene said...

I was a school librarian so I tend to read kids' book (they are really the best!). Love the Percy Jackson series, but Wennie Has Wings is a heartbreaking, uplifting, wonderful, awful book that I have never been able to forget. Cried like a baby sitting next to a stranger on a plane - yep, it was that good.

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!!!

A book : I am currently Reading "Snow flower and the secret fan" It's about women and their love for each other, and their secret language, and sad things too like foot binding. It is set in provincial china. But it's good so far!

I read a lot of blogs, but not many of them are Canadian. I am thrilled that I am finding so many great blogs to follow on this fun blog-hop! I just read State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. It was phenomenal. It had a great review in the Globe and Mail which made me look it up at the library... a very compelling story, easy to read, beautiful writing, and made me think at the end! :)

Jennyroo said...

Jennie said...

If you're a Downton Abbey fan, you should read "Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey" - it's all about the heiress who saved Highclere castle, the castle they use in the show. It's really fascinating.

KOcanQuilt said...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day. I have just finished reading "Tully" by Paullina Simons, a great read but it takes a bit to get into it but worthwhile.
happy days.

Marianne said...

I finally got around to reading Going Rogue by Sarah Palin and I highly recommend that. It was nice to get the real story rather than the drivel that passes for fact in the news. I also enjoyed reading about Alaska as I did not know much about the state. For fiction, I am reading The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent. Not finished yet, it's about the Salem witch trials based on the author's family history. Sorry for the long comment!

rutigt said...

It´s hard to recommend a book in another language than your own ! I do like detectivestories my self, for example Julie Parson or Minette Walters. I enjoyed reading their books.

Jodi said...

The last book I read was "The Price of Life" by Nigel Brennan, Kellie Brennan & Nicole Bonnie. It is a true story and Kellie was the Caterer for my wedding and lives in my families small community. I have no idea how she got through the experiences in this book. It is an amazing read and really wonderfully well written especially when you remember that they are not professional writers.
