A-Z Wednesday, The Other Bolyn Girl




Well it's that time of week again, A - Z Wednesday, todays letter is "O". I love Philipa Gregory's works and this is yet another one in my TBR pile. I was trying to read them in chronological order...




Here's how it works:

Each Wednesday I'll post the meme with that weeks letter (A-Z).

Grab the A-Z Wednesday button on my sidebar to add to your post, to link back here.

Go to your stack of books and find one whose title starts with that weeks letter.

Post
1~ a photo of the book
2~ title and synopsis
3~ link(amazon, barnes and noble etc.)
4~ Come back here and post your link in the comments
If you've already reviewed this book you can the review also.
Be sure to visit other participants to see what book they have posted and leave them a comment.
(We all love comments, don't we?)
Who knows? You may find your next "favorite" book.

I also have to add a little something about the word "other". Many moons ago my boys had a rabbit named SOX yes like the baseball team. Must have been in the days when Daniel was going to be a pro player, and Sasha just wanted a rabbit. Well as it happened on Christmas Eve, we were at mass and the priest announced that someone had left a rabbit on the doorstep. Imagine, he (the priest) was not sure what their intentions were. Did they expect him to make this a meal or a pet? As he was not interested in either end he asked for someone to adopt this fuzzy delight. Since we already had Sox, the guys, and I mean my husband as well, raced out to see this little creature, and before I was done with my duties "The Other Bunny" was ours. He remained "the Other Bunny" until his death many many years later. Now the advertising peoples have adopted The Other Bunny, and just like that commercial for Windows 7 it was our idea.

Thank's for visiting, and its the truth on the corsage thing...Once Amanda went to mass with some neighbor friends, and kind of like your bunny thing, there out side the door was a box with a liter of kittens, yea, well Amanda didnt bring one home, but the neighbor kids brought one home and it was the "Court kitty" we lived on a court at that time, they took it as sign from God to take care of it, they stood there threw 2 masses, making sure those kittens had good homes!! and they talked Father into keeping one, told him how God intended for those kittens to go home with parishioners, too
sweet......
Love you
Hugs always~
