Goal: 12 books for the year. Finish 1 book per month, at the very minimum.
1. The Winemaker's Wife by Kristin Harmel. Highly recommended, if you like historical fiction.
2. The Wedding Thief by Mary Simes. A fun and easy read.
3. The Berlin Girl by Mandy Robothom (did not finish it)
4. The Editor by Steven Rowley
5. The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff

Oh neat! A year or so ago, I borrowed from my friend's shelf ... a book like that. Stories of how he grew up and his mamma and recipes from ... Dom DeLuise! It was sooooooooooo good. And since I watched old movies when young, I knew all the old "Stars" he would eat with and even had some of their recipes. :)
