Thanks Stephanie! So glad to hear you enjoyed it. I bought it on sale and hope to get to it someday. *Sigh*

Ha!! I had planned to focus on getting through some of these wonderful books I bought on sale during the past two years but am not doing a very good job of it so far. I hope some of the upcoming monthly challenges will allow me to knock some of these off my tbr.

Tasha I didn't notice that they were bee books!

Cherie (crobins0) | 19984 comments What is a bee book?

I noticed that you said you DNF The Song of the Lark. too slow? I listened to it on audio and really enjoyed the story. there were a few places it dragged, but I was doing yard work while I listened and it helped. I think it could have been shorter but I was determined to find out what happened to the MC. Even though I owned My Ántonia, I listened to the audio. I really liked that one!

Tasha It's from another group we are in. It's called Busy as a Bee so we just call it bee or bees for short. :)


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Cherie- Yes, The Song of the Lark was too slow and I really didn't feel any connection to the characters. Many years ago, I recall reading and enjoying My Antonia. Since I don't remember most of the details from that one, I do plan to read it at some point. Hoping I like it the second time around. :)

Also, as Tasha mentioned a "Bee" book is for another group that Tasha and I belong to.
