Book of the Week: The Shape of Water

Always read the book first.  Yes, that’s one of my mottoes.  Strangely enough, Oscar’s Best Movie of 2017 was a MOVIE and then a BOOK.  What is up with that?   I dug a little and found out why.  Read the explanation here.   I’ve had the book on pre-order for a while and it […]

Book of the Week: A Wrinkle in Time

One of my mottos is:  “Always read the book first.”   I recently read  A Wrinkle in Time in order to prepare for upcoming Disney movie.  The book was first published in 1962…before I was born.    The upcoming Disney movie starring Oprah and Reese looks AMAZING and comes out on 3/9.  I can’t believe I’ve never […]

Books of the Week: Billy Graham’s Best Sellers

My grandmother loved Billy and Ruth Graham.  She read all of their books and shared several with me.  She quoted both of them often.    I’m sure Grandmother was one of the millions who greeted him as he entered the pearly gates this week.  It wouldn’t make sense for my book of the week choice to […]

Book of the Week: The Magnolia Story

  I’m not one of those people who is addicted to HGTV.  Really, I’m not.  I’ve seen a handful of Fixer Upper episodes and I’m kinda fascinated by Tiny Houses after binge watching a few episodes with my Mom and my Aunt one day.   However, my Mom on the other hand, is ADDICTED to HGTV.   […]

Book of the Week: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Well, it’s the App of the Day so I decided to make it the book of the week too! After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, […]

Books of the Week: The Top 10 of 2017

Goodreads is an app/site that helps me keep track of all the books I’ve read.  Right now it tells me that I’ve read 248 books, want to read 116, and am currently reading 7.   I’m really only reading one book right now so guess I better check my settings. To me, there’s nothing better than […]

Book of the Week: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

I was about to lose an Audible credit and needed to make a quick decision about which book to purchase.  I quickly scanned their top recommendations for me and was intrigued by the title:  Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.   Upon further research, Reese Witherspoon  has already picked up the movie rights for this book and […]

Books of the week chosen by the Aha! Webmaster

Dick reminded me this week that I haven’t read one of the books he recommended to me and that he had another suggestion.  I’m so far behind on my reading!  So I asked him if I could use his two suggestions as the “books of the week”.  He agreed and and then said “I think people […]
