I read.... my book report


I am not sure how I found this book.. but I am glad that I did.  It is Fiction - but it is just such a great perspective of the life and times of Jackie Kennedy and .. of course - President Kennedy.

I have read a few books about that time period -most seem to focus on President Kennedy, his family, or are from the perspective of the Secret Service Agents. All great perspectives - however this one is written from Jackie's Perspective, and the things that she went through ..

First Meeting Jack, marrying him, and through her life - I really liked it, and thought it was a very well written book.

What have you read lately? Leave me a comment - I am searching for a new book to read

I'm reading Alter Ego by Brian Freeman..just started yesterday. I like to check when searching for something new. They have books listed by genre and then their ratings. Most have been spot on. I hate getting into a book, wondering if it will get better then realizing I really don't like it.

I read a ton. Just finished David Copperfield which I liked as I did not know the story. Also read Jodi Picoult's new one Two Ways or something like that. I usually find her fluffy, but this one had lots of info about Egypt so I enjoyed it. Happy reading!

I'm on a mission to read 52 books this year. With the library closed for 2 months I won't make it but it's been a great reading year anyway! Here are just a few I recommend.

Sounds like a very good read-thanks. It was such a different time-just think what today's reporters would do to them....

I think I am obsessed with quilting... I read quilting murder mysteries! My husband can't believe there is a whole genre related to this! I don't have much time to read (my reading is done at work to Kinder and First Graders) but I do read myself to sleep every night and I don't like intense books, but more fluff books. They really are light hearted mysteries! :)

The lost and found book shop by Susan Wiggs. As a school librarian, I love books about libraries and bookstores.

I just started re-reading the Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman. Its a fun series! Twists and turns everywhere.
