    A really good book.

    The Bees: A Novel by Laline Paull

    The main character is a worker bee. I'll never look at bees the same way again even if it is fiction.

    Watch for a Kindle sale for $2.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    MarLeClair Do you know you can download a free kindle app for you nook and get the free and/or inexpensive Kindle books delivered to your nook. Just go to amazon.com and click on the kindle book app.

    To be honest I lost interest half way though this book but finished it because my friend loved it and gave it to me to read. At least I could discuss it with her and that was worth reading it.

    Another really good book - The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Recommended by a lady in book club, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I just finished reading MRS LINCOLN'S DRESSMAKER, and I was really impressed. It is definitely an historical novel, but it is also an eyeopener. The quilt in this book is interesting

    I'm going to look for "The Bees". Since we are talking about good books, I just finished one called "The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating". The title was just too interesting to not read the blurb, and it was quite intriguing. I put it on my Amazon Wish List and my wonderful son bought it for me for my birthday. It is about a woman who has contracted a virus and cannot move much, but must lie down all day and night. A friend brings her a potted violet and picks up a snail while delivering it to the patient. She begins to watch the snail and learns about the habits of snails. I know, it sounds boring, but it really was interesting. The reviews are high.
