What are you reading?

I want to dedicate this corner of my blog to one of my passions - reading (my other passion is bags which I will get to at another time.) I have read some great books over the years, if only I could remember them all. Those that have stayed with me I will post here and give you a link so you can read a synopsis.

I belong to a book club that has been together for more than 12 years. Together we have grown and matured experiencing all that life has to offer. From time to time I will let you know what we are reading.

I hope you will share some of the books you have loved with me. Simply write the name of the book and the author. Feel free to post a link so we can all know what it's about, and maybe read it.

"Half of a Yellow Sun" by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie
The main characters stayed with me long after I had read the last page.

"Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See
I loved this book because the relationship between the two women transcended time, race and culture.

"Sacajawea" by Anna L. Waldo
It look me about eight weeks to read this book and it was worth spending the time with each of the 1400+ pages.
