« It is definitely summer | Main | Monday Mashup #2 »

June 27, 2008



I started reading the Beverly Lewis books this summer. So far I got throught "The Heritage of Lancaster County" series. Surprisingly, I got through one of them in 2 days. My goal is to get through most of them by the end of summer. Great series. I would love to get back to the Amish way of living but in a modern setting (cooking, gardening and sewing, bit still be connected to the internet and cell phone). Not sure its possible, still pondering it.

Yikes! With all the excitement of getting to go on a mini-vacation for the weekend, I forgot to start my "Week 3" post. Oops! Oh well, it's updated and there now!


Posted my reviews....


Hey Mark, I actually finished two books this week and have posted about them. So you will actually have something worth posting in the Mashup, should you choose me. :) No pressure.

I'm calling this my "Summer of the Classics". Next up: "Wuthering Heights".


Whew...almost didn't make this week's posting! Might not have if today hadn't been so hot and muggy that I just wasn't up to keeping pace with the rest of the week as far as getting "real" work done!

Professor Lee: I wish I would have had you as a teacher back in the day...thanks for being so laid back about this. I never became a journalist because I hate the pressure of deadlines. The past week has been rough. Sick me and sick cat (see my blog). Almost finished with "Cooter's" book and I've ordered Nigel's book as well as one about Billy Graham and all the presidents he has counseled over the years. That man is just so inspiring!

Lori Broach

Rough week. Didn't get much reading in.

Tracey @ In Not Of

Hi there! I added my link. I finished The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath last week. I'm excited about next week... I'm working on two good books at once! ~:-)


My contribution is posted. I took the thriller route this time.


I always blame 'time' on not being able to read. Never enough time. I had been reading a bunch of Clive Cussler books - pretty cool stuff. HOpefully time will be on my side and I can read more often soon.

The Secret Life of Kat

I SO need to join this summer reading club. I have about 5 books I'm "in the middle of" and I need some motivation to actually finish (they are all non-fiction).

This week I'll try to finish one and write about it next week. Thanks for the inspiration, Mark.


I just finished 2 Nora Roberts books (always great) and am about to start the book "When Rabbit Howls" about a woman with 26 personalities who was extremely abused in all ways. Her personalities splintered off as a coping mechanism but deep within is a little 2 year old known as "Rabbit" who does nothing but scream. Non-fiction and very sad. Really deep reading. At least I know that I have my Father who loves me.

Gary Smith

As usual I am reading a few books at the moment. However a book I have recently finished and highly recommend is MR PIP by Lloyd Jones. It is the story of a young girl who is brought up on an island in New Guinea. When the school is closed down an eccentric man offers to open it to educate the children. He is not a teacher and simply reads them Great Expectations. Initially a simple, charming tale begins to reveal itself as something darker and profound. Check it out!

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
