May '14

In May 2014, we're reading and discussing These Is My Words: the Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine by Nancy Turner.  It's set in the Arizona Territory from 1881-1901 and is historical fiction based on the life of the author's great-grandmother.

  1. After being too confused to know which year it is (!!) I have just ordered this book used from Amazon and am looking forward to reading and quilting along with you all.

  2. I just got my book from ebay. Do I start with this book and block or do I need to do the other one too?

  3. You can start with any book you want to. We're a relaxed group in that way! And welcome! We're so happy to have you, Tammy.

  4. Got the book, have started reading it. Never done this before, so is there going to be a discussion and at what point?


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
