I just finished reading, ‘Longbourn’, by Jo Baker. It was a good read. It was written from the view of the servants who helped the Bennett Family of Pride and Prejudice. Next up, “Mysterious Missouri “Show Me” the Strange Stuff’.
Kat H. says
I am currently reading two books. The first about yin yoga and the other is The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. I’ve also set aside a third book for a little bit titled Longbourn; it’s a spin-off of Pride and Prejudice.
Where Children Run
It’s a true story about child abuse-very sad how his goes on.
The last book I read was “Every Living Thing” by James Herriot. It was a book I had read as a child when my mom took us to the library every Saturday. It is a collection of stories written by an English veterinarian.

Amber =) says
The last book I read was one called The History of Us, and it was awful!! Just started a Joyce Meyer book to make up for that one! =)
I’m reading ‘Spider Bones’ by Kathy Reichs. Her books are what inspired the TV show ‘Bones’. They are kind of like CSI, but following just one anthropologist through a couple of cases. This is the last one of hers that I need to read, and I will be all caught up. Kind of sad, and now I will need to find a new series.
I love my library for books like this, mysteries that I’m probably only going to want to read once.
The last book I read was The Help.
Hoping to finish The Girl of the Limberlost today, last finished book was Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon.

The last book I read (and finished) was In Search of Memory by Eric Kandel. My Behavioral Neuroscience class read this book throughout the semester and I absolutely LOVED it! It’s not just for science geeks! Lots of interesting brain info in that book! Recently, I have started reading Anna Karenina, but I have finished it yet. It’s the first non-school book I’ve picked up in a few years!
…I mean I “have not” finished it.

January 14, 2014 at 9:31 am
I just finished Return to Hawk’s Hill. It’s a book written for young folks, but I picked it up at a thrift store for my kids and ended up reading it myself! It was pretty good. Now I’m reading Frosty which is a story written by a former park ranger about a raccoon she raised from a baby. It is hilarious. Kind of tame reading right now…
January 14, 2014 at 9:32 am
The last book I read (and the first book I have read all the way through since being pregnant almost 4 years ago) was Mindy Kaling’s book. She is absolutely hilarious!

I just finished reading The Overspent American: Why We Want What We Don’t Need by Juliet Schor. Which makes it seem a little ironic to immediately sign up to win a Kindle, but I do think I would use it!

Have a blessed day!
January 14, 2014 at 9:36 am
The last book I read was ‘The Golden Egg’ by Donna Leon. I’m trying to decide whether to read another novel or a book of non-fiction next. In fact, I have a few books stacked in front of my now as I try to decide and this dark and rainy Tuesday is not making the book on finance look exciting. I think something by Alice Hoffman probably has a better chance of matching my mood this week.
Stephanie Renteria says
“Heaven is for Real” by Burpo since a movie is coming soon.
I just finished reading Grace Harlowe’s Third Year at Overton College by Josephine Chase. It is set in the 1920s or 30s.

I’m always reading. The last book I finished was just before Christmas; I reread it every year and every year it makes me cry. Here is the summary from Goodreads about “The Story of Holly and Ivy” by Rumer Godden. I highly recommend the edition with illustrations by Barbara Cooney.
Ivy, Holly, and Mr. and Mrs. Jones all have one Christmas wish. Ivy, an orphan, wishes for a real home and sets out in search of the grandmother she’s sure she can find. Holly, a doll, wishes for a child to bring her to life. And the Joneses wish more than anything for a son or daughter to share their holiday. Can all three wishes come true? This festive tale is perfectly complemented by beloved Barbara Cooney’s luminous illustrations, filled with the warm glow of the Christmas spirit.
The last book I read was (sadly) called How To Create a Paperless Office…I have those New Years resolutions to keep! Book club is about to start up again so hopefully I’ll be reading some fun books soon!!
Just finished “Light from Heaven” by Jan Karon.

January 14, 2014 at 9:40 am
I have been reading Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s by John Elder Robison. As a teacher, I find Robinson’s autobiographical account fascinating. It is amazing how different peoples brains can be structured and how some people seem to be so resilient in the face of so many extreme obstacles in their lives.
I just finished “Here We Come”, which is the last book in the “Aggie’s Inheritance” trilogy by Chautona Havig. Excellent books!
Amy Young says
Just finished Big Fish by Daniel Wallace (for the 100th time) . It is one of my favorite books from childhood and I try to read it a couple of times year just to remind me that you should take time to dream big.

The last book I finished was Betsy-Tacy. My little girl and I are reading the series together.
I’m currently reading Wife After God, as well as Betsy Tacy and Tib.
I’m currently reading Night Film by Marisha Pessl. It’s a bit of a darker novel than I usually read, but I’m enjoying it anyway. The last book I read was Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief a few weeks ago (this was my end of a deal that I made with my 12 year old son).
I just read Redeeming Love – so good, I highly recommend
Beth Bhous says

I just finished The Ultimate Gift for my monthly book club.
Cindy Stickles says
Good morning! The last book I read was “Eat, Pray, Love”. It’s actually the third time I’ve read the book. The message it shares of finding yourself through spirituality (of food, meditation, or love) resonates strongly with me.
Thank you, and thank you for your blog.
January 14, 2014 at 9:43 am
I just read the Rosie project, which is a fiction novel about a guy’s scientific approach to getting a wife!

The last book I read was “Perfect for You” by Kate Perry
Just finished Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Travels with Epicurus by Daniel Klein – both are worth a read!
The last book I read was Wednesday Letters by Jason Wright. This book really touched me with the relationship of the couple in the book. It helped me take a look at the relationship I have with my husband and made me realize we all should let people know how we feel in real time instead of waiting for something to happen.

Sweet. I just requested that one.
Stephanie DeClue says
The last book I read was The Astronauts’ Wives Club by Lily Koppel. I am a space history buff and have read The Right Stuff and most of the astronaut biographies so it was really great to hear things from the wives perspective. I highly recommend it. Even if you aren’t a space buff, every woman can identify with the pressures that were put on these women to be perfect.
Dawn Shumpert says
January 14, 2014 at 9:55 am
The last book I read was “The Game of Thrones.” I’m currently in the middle of the second book, but finding it hard to stay into it. Maybe if I had an awesome Kindle Fire, it would inspire me to get back into it
_Radical Homemakers_, by Shannon Hayes. I now have three going: _Guerilla Marketing_, by Jay Conrad Levinson; _The Long Winter_, by Laura Ingalls Wilder; and _Cooked_, by Michael Pollan.
I just finished “What Alice Forgot” for the second time. I read it on my own a while back and it was selected as my book club book for the month. Good thing I enjoyed it so much!

Arlene Compton says
January 14, 2014 at 10:01 am
The book I just finished is The Dragon’s Tooth, Book 1 in the Ashtown Burials series by N.D. Wilson. It’s a rather odd choice for me, as YA fantasy is far from my first choice of reading, but my teenage niece and nephew love these books and, since we enjoy talking about books, I read it so we could discuss it. They were thrilled to get my comments and I just got the next one from the library. N.D. Wilson is a Christian man who writes creatively and has a good story to tell – almost too fast-paced for me, but just what teens like. His books are a great option for Christian teens.
Dawn T says
I recently finished reading The Last Great Game by Gene Wojciechowski. I am about halfway through Seductive Poison about Peoples Temple.

The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed out of a Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
Susan Pangelinan says
I just finished reading the classic mystery book “The Complete Father Brown Mysteries” by G.K. Chesterton. A good connection to your Frugal Girl web, because I downloaded the Kindle app free on my I Phone, and this book was one of their free classic titles (Kindle has many)–so while traveling for my job as a member of the military, I can read a classic while waiting at airports or in line, etc. My goal is to continue reading any free classics I have not read before, all downloaded free! The interesting short stories had a double payoff–they transported me into another period and location(often France but some short stories took place in other settings), and the short stories could be finished during the length of most airline flights or airport gate waits! Frugal And Functional.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Good!
January 14, 2014 at 10:03 am

I could really use this! My computer just died! The last book I read was “The Reason I Jump” by Naoki Higashida (a man on the spectrum) and David Mitchell. I have a grandson with autism, and I thought it might help me see things from his view. Actually it did much more than that! Everyone should read it.
I just finished “The Last Train: A Holocaust Story.” It was a great, short read. Thanks for the giveaway.

January 14, 2014 at 10:20 am
Gulp! A tour of the alimentary canal…it is actually really very entertaining and has changed my views on digestion. Good grief…I might be a total nerd. I like the idea of building the points toward a reward as an extra incentive. I reminded that we must be very careful what we put inside our minds whether through tv, music or books…our brains are sticky so a Kindle Fire is freedom, but the reward points are a little reminder to give care.
Pamela Smith says

And reminded me how enjoyable a good book is! With a Kindle Fire, we could download the book and the movie! What fun!
