As much as I love censuses and other historic documents in digital format, when I think of sitting down and reading, it's never with a Kindle or a Nook.

It's a book...and my library is extensive. Selected volumes get encore readings.


I've finished the first three of the series of Covered Wagon Women books by Kenneth L Holmes.

Loved. Them.

Women's diaries fascinate me, and these were no exception. (I blogged about two other diary compilations I also treasure here.)

I blew through the first one, and then spaced out the reading of Volumes 2 and 3 with some fiction.


Just picked up my March issue of Family Tree Magazine, and looked at the book reviews on page 11.

Tainted Legacy: The Story of Alleged Serial Killer Bertha Gifford (non-fiction genealogical book) and The Quickening, (a work of fiction inspired by family research) should arrive at the cottage sometime this week.

I'm gearing up for Women's History Month...
