Must Read Book

I just finished reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and now I want everyone to read it. I passed it on to my mother-in-law, I might see if Scott will attempt a read, and then I'm sending it to my mother! The book is a fictional tale of post-WWII Guernsey island, between England and France. The book is made up of a series of letters, which some may find difficult to follow but I adored! It was like a peak into someone else's life. Don't you think that the art of letter writing has been lost a little in this technology era? Who doesn't like to get something from the post office? Anyway, it was a quick read and I literally laughed out loud several times in this book. Scott would come over and ask me what was so funny. He couldn't comprehend that I was laughing while reading. It was hard to explain to Scott the author's wit and the charming characters without just reading the whole book to him up to the point where I was laughing.

The original recommendation for this book came from my good friend, Jandee. I've read several books based on her recommendation and have never been steered wrong. But then Jandee and I do have similar taste in books.

Jandee reviews the book on her blog, here. I'm glad that I loved the book so that Jandee and I can still be friends! :)
