    You're doing amazingly well, Talisman! Books on your list I've particularly enjoyed are Mr Pip, The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, Out of Africa, and anything non-fictional by Lillian Beckwith.
  5. The Limerick Game

    Hell's Bells!" came a shout from the church As poor Audrey was left in the lurch The groom did a bunk
  6. No, I really did enjoy it, Muggle. Thought the Book Women were amazing and very intrepid. Also found the background of the Blue Fugate people fascinating and very well researched. The odds that a French immigrant carrying the recessive gene would marry a Kentucky Hill woman carrying the same gene, are very remote, but that's what happened. The only criticism I have is that I felt Cussy Mary was at times almost too saintly. When you're going very short of food yourself, I think it would be very rare to give away ALL the food you were given. And some of the characters were a little inconsistent. But apart from that a most enjoyable read, and glad you enjoyed it too

  18. Just finished The Bookwoman Of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson. Very interesting novel based on the Blue Fugate people of Kentucky, who carried a very rare recessive gene that turned their skin blue and a group of mostly women who trekked over miles of rural areas to deliver reading material to the locals.

    I'm not at all artistic, Marie, but I attended a little local art group and she was teaching zentangles. It was quite surprising how much we improved with practice. If I tried them again now I'm sure they'd be hopeless But your monotangle is amazing! They're kind of like optical illusions.
