Book Finds


Made a stop at Hasting's yesterday to pick up some movies .. since there is nothing on television in the evenings on weekends.. and came across these two books for $.99 ea! Had to have them.

Did you know ..... "in 1854 at a peace conference at Fort Laramie Wyoming, a prominent Northern Cheyenne chief requested of the US Army authorities the gift of one thousand white women as brides for his young warriors"? (quote from the author's note of One Thousand White Women... The Journal of May Dodd by Jim Fergus). I didn't. This book is a complete work of fiction based on this one historical event. I can hardly wait to read this book.

Did you know... that Jun is a pale blue, opalescent stoneware glaze named after a town in China where it was first made in the 11th century? What a buy! Love the books!

Me too... I would have wall to wall bookcases if I could. And find it impossible to part with a book no matter how many times I have read it! ;)
