I've been disappointed in a couple of my latest reading downloads. Free downloads are not always a good investment. After the latest disappointment, Friend-husband handed me a book and said, try this.
It's a Newberry Award winner--one I've never read. The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. Appropriate, since we are on our way to Salem, Massachusetts.
I can scarcely put it down. What an engaging and well written book. So refreshing. I think it is my new best friend. It's an old book--written in the fifties. Our copy is old too, tattered, and well worn. I can see why.
I've been reading a lot of new books lately, but they have nothing over these old favorites.
I've never met a Newberry I didn't love. How about you.
