Hi All,
     Whats everyone Reading? Got some recommendations for a good read? I have been reading some Amish stories. I read a two book series about a group of Amish back at the turn of the century who got together and moved from Ohio to pleasant valley in Mexico I believe the author is Dale cramer. If you are interested in reading about the Amish and want the names of the books I will get them for you. I read so much I often cant remember the names of books and have to look them up.       Judie

although these are fiction they come from the truth as there is still a large group of Amish in Mexico.

Didn't know there were Amish in Mexico. I grew up in Ohio just north of Amish country and my Aunt and Uncle had a farm near Howe Indiana that had alot of Amish as neighbors.

I'm reading "The Rope" by Nevada Barr. Here's the synopsis for those of you who like suspense/thrillers:
Fans of Nevada Barr's long-running series of novels about park ranger Anna Pigeon are in for a slight but enjoyable detour with "The Rope." Instead of advancing the series in time, it takes us back to the beginning, when Anna, in 1995, first gets involved in ranger work as a seasonal employee on the shores of Lake Powell. The novel opens with Pigeon's co-workers wondering why she's disappeared, and some thinking she skedaddled back to New York after finding the work too difficult.

The truth is far different. Anna is lying naked, her head aching from a blow and one arm dislocated, at the bottom of a "jar" -- a smooth-sided canyon that can only be accessed or escaped by a ladder that Anna doesn't have. As the sun beats down, she finds what appears to be a miracle -- a canteen containing water. Anna drinks it and sleeps -- the water was drugged. When she wakes, she finds the word "whore" carved into the flesh of her thigh.

How Anna escapes her prison and unravels the clues to find the identity of her assailant form the basis for a mystery that keeps the reader's interest, whether a first-timer to the series or a fan who's read all of the Pigeon books. Going back to the beginning, The Rope establishes Anna's self-reliant personality and the ways it is tested by her ordeal in the desert and her dealings with others. Supporting characters are also well-defined, as well as details about the not-so-glamorous life of a park ranger. It's a good read.
Tina

I enjoy reading fiction and non-fiction about the Amish as my grandfather was born  to Amish turned Mennonite parents. Vacationing in Florida right now and knitting. Pam

I'm actually reading an Amish fiction book right now, too, Judie!  It's "The Mercy," the third book in "The Rose Trilogy" by Beverly Lewis.  I really like Beverly Lewis books.

Prior to the book I'm reading now, I just finished reading "The Choice" by Nicholas Sparks. I don't know why on earth I read all the Nicholas Sparks books, because I know they'll have me crying like a blubbering fool at the end of the story, because they're all tear jerkers!

Mary I read all the Amish books out there. I too like Beverly lewis.  I think Braunstetder is another good author. But let me tell you those Dale Cramer books are excellant.  I have never read nicholas sparks. Maybe i should try one. Pam I too had an Amish Grandfather. Alas he left the group when his brothers threw a snake around his neck. He hired onto railroad and became engineer.
      Tina I never read any books by Nevada Barr. Well I have some good Ideas now. TY.

I wish I had time to read! I used to be an avid reader. I even owned a small book store in our little town. I sold mostly used books; but, it was fun, just not very profitable.  :sad: When I was a girl, I loved to read biographies. We had a bookmobile that came to our town every 2 weeks. We were allowed to check out 6 books each. So, my sister got 6, my mother got 2 & then, I got my 6 plus, the other 4 using mother's card! lol This was during the summer and I had plenty of time to read. My mother read what she called gothic novels & when I was a teen I read those. These were basically romance novels set in other countries. Some had a mystery or spooky genre to them. Now, I like mostly fiction. I need to have my mini "get a ways" when I read.  :tongue:

Sorry, I didn't have a book to share.

I'm reading Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas.  It is about Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life and how he was part of the resistance in Germany during WWII and is very interesting.  The war is about to break out, actually, but it is interesting how the church responded to Hitler and didn't stand against so much injustice.  The ones who did, like Bonhoeffer, were few in number and looked upon by many as troublemakers. 

Lots of people have been reading a book called The Harbinger.  My husband just ordered it the other night, so I'm planning to read it too, after him.  My pastor's sermons have been based on it, from what I understand, but it is a novel --  but his messages are out of Isaiah-- not novelish at all, so I guess I'll understand better when I read it. 

Bonhoeffer is taking me a while as I read a little before I go to sleep each night and it is over 600 pages, I think.  I got it for my birthday in Sept. -- but I read a book or two in between and many magazines too!!  :)  I think I tend to not read just one thing at a time. I am more than 1/2 way through -- finally!!  Sometimes it makes me feel I'm in WWII Germany, which is a strange, eerie feeling.  I do enjoy stories about people, so biographies are always interesting to me.  I love getting a better view of history too.

Oh, Pam, I am crocheting!!  Now that I care for Mom in our home, I actually have time to read and to have a hobby!!  When I was teaching I used to say, "What on earth is a hobby??"  There was no room for such a thing in my life.  :)  I am making a jacket I found on Pinterest.  I am loving Pinterest.  Anyone else likes it too?  I know Linda has been on it.

I like the idea of Pinterest but am having a bit of difficulty navigating it.
Guess I don't understand it very well.

I am reading Positive Imaging right now and I'm getting ready to start The Seat of the Soul.  It's been kind of amazing to me how my interest in reading has been renewed over the last few years.  There is something very calming and delightful in getting lost in a good book for me.

Blessed and Loved,
LP

I have a great deal of difficulty understanding how Pinterest works, also. Are there actually links to patterns?  That would be great. Crick, needle arts are a great, creative hobby. They keep my hands too busy to eat!!!

I belong to pinterest; but, I don't know what to do with it either. Anybody want to give a tutorial?  :tongue:

I need to tell you that I don't read much because I, too, do a lot of crocheting! But, right now, I'm embroidering family names & birth dates on the quilt top that my mother & sister have made for my oldest granddaughter. I don't quilt; but, my mother has taught my sister how and they are making some beautiful quilts!

Joe -- how interesting that you knew Bud Jr.  He must have had some stories.  Can you share a few??  I read a Christian fiction book to my class when I was a teacher that used in it the whole Who's on first? routine and my students loved it -- that's what I love about classic anything -- they never really go out of style.

Pinterest is sort of user friendly, I find.  I'm learning as I go, I guess, but have found it so useful.  You have boards that are different categories of interest.  You "pin" ideas to your boards that other pinners have already pinned to their boards.  It's like all these neat ideas floating around waiting to be discovered.  Like one of my boards is for crocheting, another is for grain free recipes, another is for ideas for our lake house, one for crafts, one just for neat ideas.  I find it very helpful because I can organize things on the internet that I find interesting and know where to go to easily find them.  I like to go to the original internet spot to pin my ideas, though, and not really pin them straight from another person.  You can get to what you really want the fastest that way.


Here is a link to the crochet pattern I'm working on right now.  I am afraid I will run out of yarn before I quite finish it, though, and I might have to make the sleeves two colors.  Like both starting the same color and then sort of trimmed in a complimentary color.  It'll still look nice.  I got cheap yarn from Big Lots, since I'm just starting to crochet again after a long time.  My stitches are very even though and it has been so easy to pick it up again.  I know I'm going to love doing it again.
