A beautiful southern-style blackberry cobbler uses canned berries and self-rising flour, so it's easy to have anytime.

I'm reading Hard Time by Shaun Attwood. It's basically his journal of his jail time in the roughest jail in the US. Pretty good so far. I'm all about non fiction movies/books!

Currently reading Phoenix Falling by Mary Jo Putney and it's very captivating and great story so far; hard to put it down. I highly recommend it.

Just finished Broken for You by Stephanie Kallos. Excellent excellent book - even for a debut novel!

Poo, not getting any hits in the e-books on those titles. Guess I could try the old fashioned way. Wonder how odd that would feel?

I am reading The Spark by Kristen Barnett, recently read The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman, The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards, Left Neglected and Still Alice by Lisa Degenova and for a book club we read all the Canada Reads 2013 nominations:
they were all excellent and were authors I wouldn't normally pick.

Just finished a couple of good ones: the Devil in the White City. Excellent non-fiction story of the World's Fair 1892 in Chicago. And the Kashmir Shawl by Rosie Thomas, interesting novel, good read. Starting The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.

The Aviator's Wife is excellent! It's historical fiction about Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the wife of Charles Lindbergh. I highly recommend it.

I'm pretty shocked about how few (I think two) of the above were e-book at the library. Then I went to the hard copy site and found only 1 in hard copy. Wow. Shocked. Elaine, I have Nook not Kindle. Pulled out my list of what I have read for this year. Funny how I look at the titles and can't remember anything about some of them. LOL> But also want to mention Henrietta Lacks, The Long Long Sleep, and I am Nujood.Thanks for the recommends and keep them coming.

Just finished Stephen King's "Under The Dome." Good! It will be on television this summer as a Mini-Series.

@Indiana Peggy - loved Devil in the White City. I actually couldn't figure out if it was non-fiction or historical fiction. And I actually had a week-long business meeting in Chicago while I was reading!

Another really good one is Look Again by Lisa Scottoline. It's about a reporter that is looking at missing children flyers, when she recognizes her just adopted son as one of the missing child on a flyer.

Just finished John Grisham's The Rackateer. The underdog wins! I'm now reading Atlantic: Great Sea Battles, Heroic Discoveries, Titanic Storms, and a Vast Ocean of a Million Stories by Simon Winchester about different things connected with the Atlantic Ocean. I can't wait for the newest Dan Brown book, Inferno: A Novel, just released a few days ago!

One of my favourite sites is It gives a bio of the authors, lists their books according to series, etc., and lists books that the authors recommend. I use it if I want to make sure I start a series with the first book or if I want to see when a fav author is coming out with a new book, etc. Great site! P.S. some of my favourite authors are Harlan Coben, Lee Child, Robert Crais, J.D. Robb ... murder mysteries! #Elaine, I've also read most of Lisa Scottoline's books.

Love Lee Child and J.D. Robb!

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. Loved this book. My daughter gave it to me for my birthday. I've also read Amy and Isabelle and Abide with Me by Strout. Another favorite is After You'd Gone by Maggie O'Farrell.
