If you haven’t figured it out I LOVE books and reading. There is never enough time to read all that I want to read and I have so many author friends who just keep cranking out great books that the list will always be growing.
Since today is my birthday I just wanted to give a shout out to all of you who have donated to my Little Free Library in honor of my birthday. I am thrilled that the reception has been so warm and that more people are discovering it. If you missed my post about it you can click here to see how it works and what it looks like.
A huge thanks to my sweet husband, Chris, who made sure that I got my birthday wish of the Little Free Library and to all of my faithful readers who are commenting this month to help make a donation to The Little Free Library organization.
Tell me in the comments—what are YOU reading today?

Happy Happy Birthday my dear blogging friend!! You have done so well with your reading list and such a great variety. I am slow reader and would read more if I wasn´t busy writing. I just reread Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates as I am working on Amanda in Holland. It was written in the 1800s so it is a bit out of date. I loved it when our teacher read it to us all those years ago and enjoyed it again. The thing that amazes me is the author, Mary Mapes Dodge had never been to Holland when she wrote it! Sometimes its fun to read an old classic. At this rate you will read more than 100 books this year!!
I definitely need to pick up some more classics and read. I get caught up in a fun series and keep to that and forget about the classics that I never read or have forgotten. Plus I have an entire row on the bookshelf of books by my great uncle that I have not read. Time to get busy!
So many books, so little time! I know.
YES! “As she downloads the May Kindle First free book to her Kindle.” 🙂
I’m currently reading “Good Harbor” by Anita Diamant. Just finished her “Day After Night” and have “The Boston Girl”, also by her, cued up on the sofa table. I figured I liked “The Red Tent” so much when I read it years ago, that I’d knock off the rest of them all in one shot. Can’t say I liked “Day After Night” too much though – didn’t seem to have the depth of “The Red Tent”. Oh well. Next up will be “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” – a NYT bestseller. It proofs to be a fascinating book: https://www.amazon.com/Killers-Flower-Moon-Osage-Murders-ebook/dp/B01CWZFBZ4
I loved the Red Tent but I think that is the only one of hers I have read unless I am forgetting which does happen occasionally. 😊.
Sorry, meant to say ” It PROVES….”
Happy birthday! I have been an avid reader my whole life. I can remember going to the library when I was young and experiencing joy & amazement when the librarian showed me the various book series that were on the shelves. Wow! Sue Barton student nurse!
Oh my goodness- Sue Barton was THE best! I may have to find some of those old series!!!!
I have a box full of books coming your way, probably on the 1st (when I get my retirement check).
Oh goodness! You are the best! Obviously you can send media mail for cheapest rate. THANK YOU!!!!
I can’t read more than one book at a time… 🙂
I am currently reading Second Chance Romance by Jill Weatherholt. I am thoroughly enjoying it.
Oh that sounds like a good one! Thanks for sharing and for the birthday wishes!
Happy birthday, dear friend! I hope you have a fabulous day however you celebrate.
I am currently reading Murder Book by Frank F. Weber. It’s a fictional story based in my husband’s hometown area and written by someone Randy knows.
Thank you! I plan to have a fabulous day and it has started off pretty great with talking to both of the boys. 🙂 Your book sounds pretty interesting!
Which book has left the biggest impression with you? Is there something in one or more of the books that has impacted you to think differently or live differently?
That is a difficult question! Perhaps the one that has impressed me the most lately is a book about Mother Teresa. What a life and what a mission she had.
Happy Birthday Beth Ann. Enjoy the day.
Thanks so very much!
Happy Birthday, hope you are having a wonderful day today.
Thanks so much! I am having a fabulous day!
Your book list is so impressive!! Happy birthday:) Currently reading The Notorious RBG and American Gods.
Ooh those sound like good books!
100 books is an ambitious goal!
I read “Lab Girl” this year. It was lots of fun and made me look at trees in a whole new light.
“Three Weeks with my Brother” is one of the few Nicholas Sparks books I’ve read. It was just ok for me.
I tried to read “Truly, Madly, Guilty” in February, but it now lies abandoned on my nightstand. By chapter 7 I just didn’t care anymore what the heck happened at the barbeque. Should I?
I’m currently reading “A Darker Shade of Magic.”
I agree with your thoughts on “Three Weeks With My Brother”. I found myself skimming through a lot of the pages. I stuck with “Truly, madly, Guilty” and was glad I did but if it didn’t get you interested enough by chapter 7 then you were right to abandon! I read such a range sometimes it amazes me how much I can like different genres. Thanks for your thoughts!
Impressive list! Happy Birthday! Right now I’m reading the history of salt, California and the road to McCarthy. Just finished McCarthy’s bar & the history of vice. Enjoy the lil’ free library, when I find myself on that side o’ the state I’ll have to swing by and swap out!
Guess what book I put in there? A copy of the Tar Heel Traveler that you sent to me! I got a copy just for the LFL! I need to check and see if someone has taken it!
Thanks for including Tea-spiration on this list!! 🙂 I’m currently reading (and almost done) The Colour of Tea. I fall in love with almost all books that have tea in their story line.
