Three New Books Added to My Library

Last year, for Mother's Day, one of my sons gave me a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. A good son he is, because he knows how much his mother likes to read. But I have been waiting to use the gift certificate for just the right time and for just the "right" books. Last Monday, the time was right and I made a decision. Not only did I order one book.....I ordered three.

The first book is a slightly controversial one.....Kitty Kelley's newest publication about media great and one of Mississippi's own, Oprah Winfrey.

Not only did I order Ms. Kelley's new book, I also ordered "The Help," by Kathryn Stockett. Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, Ms. Stockett now lives in Atlanta, and her newest literary work has been on the New York Times bestseller list for several months. I have not read fiction for a number of years, but since the book is set in my native state, and its reviews have been glowing, I decided to make an exception.

Just for fun, I added a third book to the order....."The Politician," by Andrew Young. The latter should be an interesting read - one that addresses a serious matter and allegedly dishes a lot of political dirt.

All three books are scheduled to be delivered by UPS no later than tomorrow afternoon. The next decision will be to decide which new book to read first.

Thank you, son, for your gift......it took almost a year for me to use it, but the time (and the books) were not "just right" until now.
