Kindle Kontents: January Part 2

I WAS going to make this a monthly feature thing-a-ma-bob but I've been through more books than I thought I would! haha So here we go with round 2!

1. I read Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli because i kind of have a thing for Word War II fiction. It's a much younger reading level than I'm used to, but sometimes it's nice to find a good book like that. Following the story of the orphaned gypsy during the Holocaust was one of those stories that I couldn't wait to see what happened next. While hardly any WWII books have a happy ending, some journeys are so inspiring you just can't wait to read them!

2. I found Agathe Von Trapp: Memories Before and After the Sound of Music on after our minister spoke a sermon about Maria Von Trapp's life-long evangelism. She was such an inspiring person! The book I originally wanted to read wasn't available on Kindle, but I found this one written by her eldest daughter instead and it did not disappoint! I learned so much about the REAL story of the Von Trapp Family, logistics from both World Wars, and the differences between the movie and the actual events.

3. I just started Barbie and Ruth today! I stumbled upon it at Barnes & Noble last summer and it has been on my list to read ever since. I've been on a biography kick lately, so I'm eager to delve into the story of Ruth Handler and her invention of one of my beloved childhood playthings.

Do you have your nose in a book too? There HAVE to be other compulsive bookworms like me out there! Speak up and let's geek out together!

I'm reading Anna Karenina by Tolstoy and it's so hard to put down! Who knew classics could be so juicy?
