Photo Hunt:Books

This week's photo hunt topic is "books". Here is one I thoroughly enjoyed, and recommend highly!

"Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos, is the kind of book that makes you want to hunker down on a chilly day in a comfy chair and read straight through til dark....This is a poignant, heart-tugging story about a single woman and a little girl who develop an unlikely bond." The Washington Post Book World

"A touching, triumphant story of the power and variety and responsibility of love. A joy to read, filled with characters you wish you knew in real life. Love Walked In is every bit as engaging as the classic movies Marisa de los Santos lovingly invokes." Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club

My book club is reading Love Walked In this month (on my recommendation). You will absolutely fall in love with 10 year old Claire, a character who is so real, vibrant and resilient, you want her to bring her home. The other characters are also quite human and vulnerable. The book will make you laugh and cry, and want more.

I just bought the sequel, Belong to Me, and I'm saving it for my flight to Rome.

This will be the first Italy trip where I only bring one book to read. Since I got my new i-phone (which acts as a Kindle), I have been browsing Amazon to see what books I'd like to read with no extra weight in my luggage. That should be worth a couple extra pairs of shoes!

I like your strategy for packing more shoes. :) Both books sound great. I will look for them.

extra room for purchases - now THAT is a plan!

Great plan for more shoe space!! Have you tried reading one on your iPhone? I added the Kindle app to my iPod Touch. I loaded a few samples but have not tried to read more than a few pages yet. I need to add a few books before I leave also. When do you leave??

Palma:

We leave June 25!
