Semper Gaudete!: Books Read in the Past Week








Books Read in the Past Week



"The Home Has A Heart"
by Thyra Ferre Bjorn
[non-fiction, Christian (Protestant) themes,
anecdotes, recipes]
{August chapter only}

"Ellen Tebbits"
"Otis Spofford"
by Beverly Cleary
(children's fiction)
[among my childhood favorites]
{In "Otis Spofford", we are told that Otis
lived in an apartment building with his mother.
The absence of his father is never explained.
I doubt that his parents were divorced or separated; such
issues were not discussed in children's books when this book was
written.

"To Teach, To Love"
by Jesse Stuart
[autobiography]

Open Library

I now have an account at Open Library. This allows me to read online books which are not in the Public Domain. However,
just as with a physical, carry-books-home library, there is a due date!
