Quick read. You could read this in an evening. But make sure you have your tissues handy, it is more than a tear jearker, sob alert!!!Walk Across America-
A travel-log of a man that walked across America in the 70's. I've not read it in a while, but just remember that it was one that I really enjoyed.

-These are books for girls. My mother read them as a child, passed them on to me, and now I am reading them to my little girl. The first in the series is Betsy Tacy
. It is a story about 2 best friends that live in a small town in Minnesota. The nice thing about this series is the reading level increases in the books as the girls get older. I don't know of another series like that. If you do, please let me know. I am a volunteer school librarian and would love to get something like that too for my kids at school!!! Jeannette Oke
-ANYTHING by her is great!!! She writes in series, and the Love Comes Softly
series is wonderful. I found a TV movie of that title a few weeks back!!!Patricia Cornwell
-The only thing I've read by her is the Kay Scarpetta series. The series takes place mostly in Richmond VA. Kay is the Chief of Forensics (or what ever the heck it's called) for Richmond. This chronicles her life all allll the mess that goes along with murder and mahem!! I adore the idea that I've been to places that she writes about. It's fun to follow that path.Joseph Girzone
:His first book is "Joshua
". It is a parable for today. Every time I read it I get a different message. There are others, and they are all charming, and have a message...but the first one was truly a magical read for me.Marjorie Holmes
:"Two From Gallilee", "Three From Gallilee", and "Jesus of Nazereth
." This is the most delightful story of the love story of Mary and Joseph. Holmes is very precise in her study of history during the time of Jesus. As you read, you instantly are put back in Biblical times. Quite amazing. The "Jesus of Nazareth"
however, strays quite a bit from what we read in the Bible, so that bothered me a bit. But the first book, a delight.
