I'm All Aquiver!

Look what I just ordered! (click on each cover to find out more)















Thanks to a couple of gift cards, a coupon & free shipping, I didn't break my commitment!

I can tell you that four months ago, I wouldn't have been nearly as excited as I am about this order. If a book struck my fancy, I bought it without a second thought. I knew committing not to buy any books for a year would be challenging, and it has been. I've been making notes of what other bloggers are reading and creating a list of books to buy once my commitment is over. I had no idea that God would provide all (YES, ALL!) of those books now! This is such a treat!

God is so good!

Breathe is on the top of my list of books to purchase after reading about it at Not Before 7. It sounds like something that will really help me get to where I want to be.

Hi. I'm here a after seeing a comment you left at For Such a Time as This.

I'm reading the top book and it is good. The others look great too.

I love Breathe! It is a wonderful book, though she still sounds rather busy to me!!
I am watching P&P as I type.
I was the Jane Austen book last night. Do please tell us about it when you finish. I had to exercise great willpower to not grab it and run to the register. I look forward to knowing what you think of it.
I think we'd get along spendidly! Well, I'm off to read another chapter in Anne of Avonlea...

What a treat from your Heavenly Father!

You are gonna love Breathe, though you are already doing so much of it. Ihave a feeling you'll just want to read it again and again, like me. Just to remind yourself of the true goal.

Let me know how the hospitality book is - looks good. With the "new house" coming, I think I'd love to read something like that.

Have a great week.

What a great list! It's sad, but I'm really late in watching Pride & Prejudice. I'll have to order it through Netflix. Have a great day!
