Ask Elnora--About Summer Reading???Lenora Worth
Hello, my lovelies. It is summer in the deep South. Elnora glistens a lot in the summer. Actually I sweat. The humidity loves me. It must, since it clings to me like a cheap slip on a Saturday night! This is why I must have palm trees and hibiscus plants somewhere nearby. And a spot of water, preferrably a nice pool or a rather big ocean. Then, of course, I need something fruity and pleasant to drink. And I need lots and lots of great books to read. So that is the question of the day. What are we reading this summer?
I have a big "to be read" pile. In each room of my house. Right now, I'm "advance" reading a book by my friend Leanna Ellis. It won't be out until August, but RESERVE A SPOT FOR IT IN YOUR PILE NOW! I won't give it away, but trust Elnora when she says "This one is different. And not for the faint of heart. But this book has heart and a lot of it." Sigh. Loved it!! Other books I've read and loved or plan on reading and loving--"Rally Round Green" by my darling friend Judy Christie, the adorable "A Cowboy's Touch" by adorable Denise Hunter, and a book that I'm holding until I can enjoy the whole thing, kind of the way I stare at a piece of cheesecake--"Stars Collide" by Janice Thompson. She has a rather interesting older character in there and if anyone can guess or knows the character, you might just win a book from me!(First one to get it right wins!) Of course, I have lots and lots of the Love Inspired Sisterhood books to read, too. Shall I drop a few names here? Marta Perry, Margaret Daley, Valerie Hanson, Lynette Eason, Winnie Griggs--oh, that's just the surface of the ice cream! I luvva all of my LI sisters' books. Oh dear, I might have to break into my emergency shoe fund to buy more books. How many days are left in summer?
Okay, your turn, my precious people. What are you reading?? Do tell!
