3 journalers for this copy...
The movers will take all of our possessions sometime in July or August and we will get access to them again when we get settled and unpacked in our new house in October or November. This book will be marked as traveling until I get the chance to get all my books out on bookshelves and make new journal entries that will change the status to something more suitable.
I am trying to set the status of all my books to be correct at this time.
Permanent Collection (PC) means that I plan to keep this book for the foreseeable future.
Available (AVL) means that I have read the book or don't desire to read the book and it is ready to move on in some fashion.
To Be Read (TBR) means that I plan to read it (at least someday) and after I read it I will decide what to do with it.
I reserve the right to change my mind at any time!
For seventeen-year-old Libby Watson, the unexpected news of an inheritance seems heaven sent. The general store in a small Illinois town bequeathed to Libby by her uncle will free her ailing father from the deadly coal mines and offer Libby and their motherless family a new life.
Reaching for a dream...
Libby seizes her opportunity with a fervor born of long-held hopes and a yearning heart. Immediately she is caught up in the lives of the townspeople, sharing in the joys and sorrows of a close-knit community, struggling to fulfill her dream to become a writer...and learning that life and love often require bittersweet choices. And in the steadfast belief that faith will sustain her; she takes the hard-won steps that prove her to be a young woman of strength and courage...challenging herself to meet each day with a passion for living.
This was not the book that I expected and if I had not three copies of it I would have given up on reading it somewhere about halfway through.
My goal is 35,000 pages and this book has a total of 357 pages that I am counting for this challenge. I have a total of 16 books read this year with 3440 pages read for the year and that is 9.829% of my 2009 goal.
This book was read for the 2009 Reduce My Mount TBR Challenge from the release challenge forum.
This is book #16 from my To Be Read Pile that I have read this year.
This is release #193 for this challenge.
This is release #508 for the year that qualifies for this challenge.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Lilgrovers and I took advantage of a lovely day to go to the zoo. We had quite a time taking pictures and looking at the animals that were out. We also left books around in hopes that they will find good homes with other zoo goers.
I left this book near the prairie dogs.
