Finally, to keep you up-to-date with my summer reading goals, I have finished my second of ten books. Uncle Tom's Cabin was incredible, and I most definitely recommend it. I am now on to O Pioneers! by Willa Cather, and it's great too! (Jane, I'm sure you'd read this one in a day. I'm 1/3 of the way through already.) Last summer, I read Cather's My Antonia, and that was one of those books I ached to read aloud. Do you know the type? The words, though written as prose, were really almost poetry; they were born to be spoken. Sometimes when I was off by myself, I would whisper a passage or two just so I could hear the sentences.
Oh, I am thankful for the joys God gives us in things we need -- the written word, for instance.
