Late yesterday afternoon I began reading my yard sale find, A Lady's Life In The Rocky Mountains upstairs inside my just-right-for-reading Littlest Hobbit Room and an hour later when Tom called from downstairs asking if I'd like to watch tv with him, I hesitated because oh! This book had whisked me away over a hundred years and thousands of miles on some incredible adventures.
Though extra-interesting since I'd visited lots of these places, many of you would love this book, also, and guess what? You can read it free online. Updated 5/6: Here's a free kindle edition.
It may take awhile to grow used to the old-fashioned language, but once you do, you're swept away and feeling gratitude that Isabella recorded in fine detail adventures we'd otherwise never take. In fact, I'm always grateful to folks who write books or make tv shows about lands I'd have left this world never seeing in any form. God used such extreme creativity in making these places (and people) and what a shame to live this one life on Earth having missed them.
(And how important that each of us use our talents/callings lest others miss out on what we were created to give!)
Finally we are due for a week of sun and warmer temps and since I'm all a dither about that, today's post will just contain links to some free (as of today, so check) kindle books for you. Enjoy.

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:
Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. –W. Clement Stone
