  12. The Quilt is a great book but you can tell my age because I need to laugh right now so I am rereading all of Erma Bombeck's books. She just gives me such chuckles. I miss her style of humor in life.

  13. I recommend the book Three Cups Of Tea; the facinating true story of Greg Mortenson's life quest to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan after a small village saved his life when he got lost on a mountain climbing adventure. A wonderfully insightful look at Pakistani/Afghani culture, and a truly inspirational read. sarah@forrussia.org
