The Light We Lost

I received the novel The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo as a gift. It was a beautiful heartbreaking story about love that I read in two days.

Loved receiving "Never have

Loved receiving "Never have your dog stuffed" by Alan Alda. The book was hilarious yet insightful into the life of Alan Alda.

Baking by Dorie Greenspan

Cookbooks are so special - years ago I received Baking by Dorie Greenspan and every time I use it I think about what a great gift it was.

A Florence Nightingale biography

I gave my mother a Florence Nightingale biography. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact title. Being a retired nurse, my mother looked up to Florence N., being a pioneer of sanitation in hospitals, amongst other great things she did for that field. I was proud of gifting the book to my mother, as I knew she would enjoy it!

The Cat From Outer Space by Ted Key

My older brother always gave me books for Chistmas and my birthday when I was a kid. He gave me many wonderful books, but for some reason, a 1978 paperback entitled The Cat From Outer Space by Ted Key was the most beloved. I read it over and over until it was dog-eared! In fact, I am pretty sure it is in my bookcase almost 50 years later, among the treasures I cannot relinquish. I think the most important book for children to read is the one they love the most - which leads to a lifetime love affair with books!

Pure Joy the dogs we love by Danielle Steel

When I went to the mammoth book sale that the library did, I saw this awesome book Pure Joy The Dogs we Love by Danielle Steel, I knew that this was the book that I would like to get and ever since then I really enjoy this book as it has emotions and the special bond of puppies and dogs.

I love giving books to the

I love giving books to the children in my life, "And Tango Makes Three" is a favourite. Best I have received - "Loose End" by Ivan Coyote.

How Big Things Get Done by Bent Flyvbjerg

I received this book and really enjoyed the insights into why big projects with unlimited money and smart people managing it still go wrong. It unpacks and exposes the errors in judgment and decision-making that can ultimately lead projects to fail.

Filipinx: Heritage Recipes from the Diaspora

I received this cookbook as a present and, much to my surprise, it had a recipe for a holiday treat called food for the gods which I used to eat around this time of year as a child in the Philippines. To be able to make it again for my family here is such a gift!
