SAHM I AM!

Sadly, I could not ever really get into "Light from Heaven" by Jan Karon. I had enjoyed the Mitford series but just couldn't get into this last one. I checked my library account and, to my dismay, realized it was overdue and I owed $1.00! They wouldn't let me renew it because it had holds (I had waited probably over 2 months for it!) I went to the library to see if there was anyway I could renew it. They said, no, but I could pay $0.20/day until I finished it. I had well over half to go, so I just turned it back in. I'll check it out again later and finish it. (I ended up paying almost $1.50 of overdue fines for that book....ouch!)

I browsed around a bit and picked up a few other books. The first one I started, "SAHM I Am" by Meredith Efken, was so good! I started it last night around 8 and finished it this afternoon. I told Chris I could hardly put it down~good thing he was off today! It was sooo funny and soooo applicable to my life because the characters were stay-at-home Chistian moms who had relationships they had formed online. How appropriate! It was a very easy read and made me laugh out loud. I recommend it!

Well, I am not a SAHM anymore--but that one sounds pretty good! I've been buried in my Francine Rivers all day--it is sooo good! Elizabeth is the one that got me pointed that direction!

I just found your post about my book, and I wanted to tell you thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. There will be a sequel this November (2006)--@Home For The Holidays, which will continue and expand the SAHM I Am storylines. You might also enjoy visiting my site, www.meredithefken.com. Happy reading, and again, thank you.
