Baker's Dozen Tomorrow

It's the day before Baker's Dozen and our final preparations are falling into place. We're hoping for a fabulous turnout for this event and a whole lot of fun. The recipe cards are here and the cinimon rolls are on their way and both look very yummy.

For reading this week, I've been reading some old favorites. Lois McMaster Bujold Miles Vorkosigan books are right at the top of that favorites list. Bruce and I have started reading the Two Towers aloud to Gwen and a book of King Arthur stories to Dennis. In the new book realm, I just finished Some Good Place, a history of Tom and Julia Davis and their role as pioneers of Boise City. This is a well written accessible history that sheds some light on the couple who donated one of Boise's favorite parks. Come and meet the author on Saturday, December 1 at 7:00 p.m. Diane Mikelgard will also be here promoting, her book The Resurrection of the Bar O, the continuation of the Davis family history. More to come later, I've finished the second book of the Pelinor series and a history called Four Queens, the story of the 4 daughters of the Count of Provance and their marriages to the kings of France, England, Germany and Sicily. I had never connected that these women were sisters and this is a particulary well done story. That's all for now. Happy Reading -Laura
