The Wednesday Sisters (Target Book Club) by Meg Waite Clayton
The Wednesday Sisters (Target Book Club)

Wendy Weising, August 25, 2009

This was a novel that inspired me to begin writing again-it was a gentle kick-in-the-seat-of-the-pants kind of motivation! It is a story about a group of women who begin to encourage each other to dream and to make those dreams become realities. None of the women are professional writers, yet as they go through life's struggles, they teach each other to write those struggles down on a page. They find that their best writing comes from telling the truth about themselves and their deepest darkest secrets.

1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus by Charles C Mann
1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus

Wendy Weising, January 14, 2009

Nonfiction can be like a good novel! Normally these words would not come out of my mouth. I love fiction. Finding a new novel with fascinating characters and an interesting plot that glues me to that novel, is one of life’s joys. However, this past year I took a chance. I stepped out of my comfort zone and read several nonfiction books. They ended up being some of the best writing I have ever read. One of these books was, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus, by Charles C. Mann. As Mann describes the scene of the Americas before Christopher Columbus’ arrival and the history that led up to it, I could not stop reading. He challenged my mind and my imagination. He is an amazing historian and writer.
