Capital BookFest - Part II

Number 33
Can you believe it’s November 1st already?  Time has truly gone fast and it get’s faster each year or am I just old, yeah, right!!!  
I’m not old, just gorgeous.  What can I tell you, I get up every morning and say, “Good morning GOD, Good morning LORD, Good morning Muh (My grandmother), Good morning Marie (my beautiful Mother-in-Law), and Good morning Aunt Precious (my great aunt).  These women created me.  They took me to places, not physically, but mentally and spiritually to get up when I fall, be thankful for what I do have and do not, repeat, do not stop fighting for what is right.  
It is a struggle, but I’m not going down without a damn good fight.  I got dreams, Big dreams, but the most influential DreamBuster in your life is you.  "The words you say in life are the words you say to yourself. You talk to yourself all the time and it's not always good.  If you talked to your friends the way you talk to yourself, you wouldn't have any friends because you tell yourself things like 'I should', 'I must', 'I have to', 'I've got to', 'why didn't I', 'I'm no good', 'I can't do it', 'I won't' and 'it will never happen'. 
And you talk yourself out of God's vision, God's dream, God's destiny for your life time after time after time.  The truth is you can't be trusted to tell yourself the truth. You can't trust what other people say either. The only voice you can trust all the time in any situation is the voice of God."   A quote from Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren.
Now, I promise to tell you of more books from the Capital BookFest in Largo, Maryland.  Also, let me apologize.  I realized over the last two blogs that I have made some grammatical errors and that is not right.  I cannot expect you to read and pay for my blog when I don’t get the ding dong words right.  Please accept my apology and I won’t do it again.  I will take my time and provide you with the best that you as the customer deserves.  Thanks for your support.  Now on to the books and   stop jabbering VaLinda.

Wench - $9.99 - - - Quote from Amazon, “Chronicling the lives of four slave women—Lizzie, Reenie, Sweet and Mawu—who are their masters' mistresses. The women meet when their owners vacation at the same summer resort in Ohio. There, they see free blacks for the first time and hear rumors of abolition, sparking their own desires to be free. For everyone but Lizzie, that is, who believes she is really in love with her master, and he with her. An extended flashback in the middle of the novel delves into Lizzie's life and vividly explores the complicated psychological dynamic between master and slave. Jumping back to the final summer in Ohio, the women all have a decision to make—will they run?
