Vente De Livre



A few weeks ago, mum and I went to a book sale and managed to find a huge selection of fabulous books and magazines. Among the pile were two books: "The Red Tent"...a book I have always wanted to read and have heard rave reviews about, and "Night" a powerful novel written by one of my favourite authors, Elie Wiesel...it's a tear-jerker, but a must read and it was on Oprah's Book List a few years back. If you can, curl up today with a cup of coffee and find comfort in some of your favourite books.
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors and the most patient of teachers"

The Rad Tent is on my bedside pile waiting to be read. It came highly recommended. I hope you enjoy it.

Read them both NOT because Oprah says so but because they are powerful meaning books! The REd Tent has always been one of my favorite reads..a story of women and how they are there to support one another...Night..well my mother is a survivor of a war camp..I know much first hand.hugs and peace NG
