It is so incredibly wonderful being on holidays and having time to read and read and read and read!!!
Last week I finished 100 Things by Sebastian Terry and The Language of Flowers By Vanessa Diffenbaugh and I LOVED both of them!! Click on the titles to read my reviews!
This week I am reading 3 great books! The Happiness Project By Gretchen Rubin, The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul By Deborah Rodriguez and Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Secondly....The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul By Deborah Rodriguez. I noticed this book everywhere at the shops and avoided it for a long while, although I am not sure why, but it is better than I had expected so far. Will give a review when I am done.
And thirdly.....Uncle Tom's Cabin By Harriet Beecher Stowe. This was a Christmas gift from my beautiful friend Lesa - a gorgeous old embossed hardcover edition! Well, I have never read this book before and knew nothing of Harriet Beecher Stowe, so I did a little looking around and found this clip from YouTube about her life and the writing of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Click here to view the video, I couldn't embed this one, but it is really worth watching. Now I know how important this book is to American History!
