Grateful for Books and Blogs

Good to read many good books.

Sites you may wish to visit – I turn to their art for hope and encouragement, and I admire their craft.

We have bought used books from libraries over the years. I have three novels by Jan Karon from our Oostburg Public Library “A Little Library Growing Everyday.”
