Need a Read?

A friend gave me this book for Christmas, and I finished reading it last week.  It is a collection of three short novels -- or novellas -- by that there Elm Creek writer, Jennifer Chiaverini.  If you like her writing, you'll like this book.

I told the woman who gave it to me that I would pass it along when I finished, and she thought that was a good idea.

So, if you would like this book, leave a comment to that effect, also promising to pass it along when finished.

I'll have my random number generator/design wall/wonderful husband select a number on Monday evening.

Oh, and PAM!  I still need your address from my charm pack give-away.  You sent it to me and somehow it got eaten up.  If I don't hear from you by Tuesday morning, I'm going to give the charm pack to the book winner as a bonus.

That's it for today.  Back to some quilty content tomorrow.  I think.

I would love you to send it down under - Australia that is. I really enjoy her story telling and getting to knowing a lot about American history even it is in novel form, we got taught English and Australian History at school

Her books are the best! I haven't read this one either. I'm from Pennsylvania and my daughter is a freshman at Penn State. I didn't realize until recently that Elm Creek is meant to be in that area. I'd love to go to a quilt camp there! If my name doesn't get picked, I'll definitely pick this book up when I'm in the States this summer (I live in Italy).

I would love to add this book to my ever growing pile on the night stand...heck, I'll even put it on top so it gets read next and will pass it on when finished...

I've read all the books in this collection and enjoyed them--some more than others. I like the ones that deal with the relationship between the Elm Creek quilters best. The novels with more historical content are OK. That being said, I have the latest in the series, The Union Quilter, on reserve at the library.

I love the Elm Creek books. I've read the first 6 and since this one contains book 7, 8 and 9 I would love to win this!
