I Finished a Book

Last night I finished a book. I read the book The $64 Tomato by William Alexander. A few months back it was recommended by Lindsey at Enjoy the Journey. It is the musings of one man as he goes through the trials and joys of having a garden. It was a really good read, but definitely better for those of us who enjoy gardening.
I don't get to read much, its one of those things I have to make time for. Usually I try to read books that are educational or spiritually uplifting or such- although I will read a novel every once in awhile. I have little time to spend reading so I figure I should make it reading that will accomplish something (like educating me or bringing me closer to God) as apposed to just filling my time with an interesting story.
This book might have given me a little bit of insight into gardening- but it was definitely a book to read for the enjoyment of it. I really think I need to spend a little more time reading books for the pure enjoyment of it. This was a good book to start with.

Glad you enjoyed it...I found myself laughing at many points through the book.

Instead of $64 tomatoes, I have $64 squash. I have this measly little squash patch, and it isn't doing well (not cross polinating like it should, I don't have enough plants). But I keep watering it day in and day out. I'm going to end up with enough squash for one meal. And probably $70 in water bills!!! :)

You have the same thoughts on book reading as I do. When I do get to "indulge" in a novel... It has to be historic Christian fiction with a little romance mixed in! Stepping Heavenward is one of my favorite fun reads, and the Anne of Green Gables Series or any George McDonald. What are your "fun" books?
