Books Read in 2014

Now that February is nearing an end, I am finally remembering to enter my list of books I read in 2014.
I am posting this later each year.

I try to read a mix of Classics, fiction, & non fiction. I always read at least one of my dad's books, & this year I read his copy of Joy in the Morning, by Betty Smith. This was by far my favorite Betty Smith book. She also wrote A Tree Grows in Brooklyn & Maggie Now. I enjoyed a time travel book that was written in the 1970's. I have also been reading through the Little House books, because I never read them as a girl. I read the 1st one, & then read it to our daughter when she was young. And I also read the first couple books to our son. I think I ended up reading Little House in the Big Woods 3 or 4 times, but I never even came close to finishing all of the books. Now I just have one more to go. I have enjoyed reading them. For my Bible reading this year I read The Apologetics Study Bible (HCSB) I also enjoyed reading East of Eden & A Christmas Carol. I also really enjoyed Fannie Flagg's newest, The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion. The non fiction book that I read was Out of the Depths: An Unforgettable WW2 Story of Survival, Courage, & the Sinking of the USS Indianapolis by Edgar Harrell, & David Harrell. I learned a lot about why the Indianapolis was not even noticed as being late in arriving, & I have to say that it was a bit shocking. My dad served in the Pacific during WW2, & I know he would have enjoyed this book. He may have read it, because I think it was originally published a while back. I also loved the newest Mitford series book, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good. And the Miss Julia books always give me a good laugh. I love her.
Well, that's it then. Until next year!
