I just finished a wonderful book, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson. Itís historical fiction set during the depression. I learned so much that I didnít know. Itís one of the best books Iíve read this year, and I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed it too! There's a picture book called "That Book Woman" on the same topic. Also, saw new novel by Jojo Moyes, I think.

It was $7.99 on Amazon, so I bought it. I thought it was a real bargain.

My book club is reading The Book woman of Troublesome Creek. It was a great story about a disorder that I'd never heard of before.
