What I've been reading...

I finished reading Little Bee yesterday. What a sad story. It really breaks my heart what some people go through, even in current times (in Nigeria, as Little Bee fled to England only to be deported), we are so blessed to live in America and have freedoms!

I started reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand last month...I am more than halfway through, but have taken a break. I will resume it soon, however. BUT I have a couple more books I want to quickly read. Notes Left Behind is one about a family who lost their 6 year old daughter to cancer. I just picked it up at the library. I also plan to read:
My friend, Bethany, gave me a batch of Amish friendship bread in August...and it's so good. My only problem is I did not want to use "instant pudding mix" as the recipe calls for so I didn't and I actually used whole wheat flour as well as unbleached white...mmm! I poured the batter into cupcake pans...and when they were done, put some cream cheese frosting to put on top...and yes, I've been sharing them with friends. I gave some to my parents and some to other friends.
What have you been reading lately? Have you had friendship bread? Would you like some? I will be happy to share.

That little bee reminded me about the book Roots by Alex Hailey
