  1. Thanks for sharing your favorite books with us. I love that you have cookbooks on your nightstand. What do you like to cook? A Camping Spree with Mr. McGee is a funny book and would be great for a summer reading display.

  2. I love Dan Brown Books too! His books really change my whole perspective on our human history! I love the way he makes me question my “reality”.

    I have not read A Camping Spree with Mr. McGee but I think that is a great suggestion for a summer suggestion. I do love Dan Brown, however. And I do love cook books by the bed stand. Pam worked at my school one year and has the greatest of organization abilities. She helped me overcome by attachment to books that needed to be weeded.

  4. Thanks for reccomending ” A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee” It looks fun!
    I also didn’t like “Catcher in the Rye” . Cook Books on night stand sound awesome.
    Mine are in the living room.

  5. It was nice to learn more about you. I also love Dan Brown. I have not read “Camping Spree with Mr. Magee”, but I will definitely search it out now. I used to devour cookbooks, but now I just devour Pinterest!

    I want to read “A Camping Spree”. It looks fun and we do not have it in our Library – I will order it next year! I love cookbooks too!

  7. I love the book “The Count of Monte Cristo” it is one of my favorites, thanks for reminding me to read it again!

  8. Cookbooks on your nightstand is wonderful. Now can you share your favorite with us? “A Camping Spree with Mr. McGee” just sounds like a fun book. I will have to add it to next years list.
