This Week in Books...

This was both a good book week and a good weather week. We got a little bit of rain this week, which in farm country is always appreciated. We are still a long way from getting out of the drought, but every little bit helps. Now, on to the books!

--The Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth from Paperback Swap
--Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino & Ronald Cotton from Authors on the Web

--Angels of Destruction by Keith Donohue from Random House
--Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz from Hachette Books and LibraryThing

--Precious by Sandra Novack for a book tour

--The Blue Notebook by James Levine from Random House

I received some wonderful review books this week, but I was thrilled to receive The Blue Notebook. I may have even done a little dance when I opened the envelope. :) This book covers a tough subject, but from the description sounds wonderful, the cover is beautiful, and it benefits a good cause. All of the U.S. proceeds from this novel will be donated to the International and National Centers for Missing and Exploited Children
