Today’s Theme as per The Broke and the Bookish is “Top Ten REWIND” where we can go back and do a topic we missed over the years or recently or a topic we really want to revisit. Therefore, since I have only been a Top Ten Tuesday participant since February 16, 2016, they have lots of great topics that I have missed, and so I have chosen to do “Ten Books I Just HAD to Buy . . . But Are Still Sitting on my Bookshelf”.
A fellow writing friend suggested I read this. She really feels it’s a great book for writers to read, so I purchased it with every intention of reading it “soon” (about a year ago), and still haven’t made the time to read it. I did pick it up and begin it one time, and I didn’t stop because there was anything wrong with it or because it didn’t hold my attention; it’s just that I was reading something else at the same time, and I just haven’t gotten back to it yet.
I heard Sue Thomas speak in April 2016 and was so impressed with, amazed and inspired by this woman that I had to have the book that tells me more about her life story, but it still waits.
9 & 10.
I gave this book two spots because it is the first book in a series that consists of 12 books plus a cookbook and I bought the whole entire series (used and from a discount online bookseller) because I had seen one episode of the TV series based on this book series. I visited with my mom when she was in rehabilitation in a nursing home two years ago after heart surgery, and she had the TV on. When the show signed off and I saw the credit about it being based on this book series, I decided I would buy the book series to read because we don’t have TV, and in my opinion, the books are always better than a TV series or movie anyway.
