New Book Finds

Greetings!

Just a short post to show you some great book finds. With winter slowly approaching, I surely could use some new reading. I found two short novels, I assume they will be quick reads leaving me plenty of time to quilt. Anyway, check them out on Amazon or your favorite book store.

The first is for the cat or just plain animal lover. The story is about Dewey. Dewey is a cat who was abandoned as a kitten at a library in their book drop. He was subsequently found by the librarian the next morning with frostbitten paws. He was nursed back to health and lived in the library as a resident filling people with tons of happiness. Isn't Dewey cute?  I can't wait to start reading this one.


The next one is a "to do" book. This is Glenna Hailey's new book. She has some spectacular projects in this book to start on during the winter. Great eye candy too! Thanks, Glenna for writing a wonderful book.

Last but not least, for those of you who follow Sylvia Compton and the Elm Creek Quilters, here is the latest installment. It is a short book (seasonal). It even has recipes in it! But we can see what Sylvia and the gang is up to in the kitchen. I hope that apple strudel recipe is included!!

Now I need to see which I will conquer first. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!!

They all sound like great books. Dewey is so cute! I did see inside the Sugar Sack quilt book. Lots of wonderful quilts and Jennifer's books, I'm way behind reading them (just the first three, so far) but do enjoy them.

Happy reading!

Adding Quilter's Kitchen to my reading list. And the quilt book I'll be dropping as a hint to hubby for a Christmas gift idea.

Poor Dewey. Who could be so cruel to such a cute kitty. Good to know he's found a place to live and be loved.

The book about the kitty sounds just precious. At our library, we have a dog that is there everyday. It stays in one lady's office and is able to walk around with her, but can't wander alone. I love living in a town where dogs are allowed at the library!

Thanks for the book recommendations I'll look some up next time I'm at the library.

Tine said...

I am off to amazon to look up Glennas book! That looks great. I have never started the Elm Creek books, but maybe I should give them a try?

Thanks for the great recommendation for my book, Jackie! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. Your blog is always such a pleasure to read---
