It's called The Hanging of Betsey Reed. It's a true story of the first lady ever to be hanged in Illinois and it happened in my hometown of Lawrenceville, Illinois. It is written by Rick Kelsheimer and the book is signed by the author. My twin brother got me this for Christmas!!! He is so sweet:)

Did anybody else get any good books for Christmas?

Christa:)

How cool Christa and an autographed copy too......no books for me.  I either read library books or get them through PBS.

Hi Nikki,

Books are the only thing I splurge on!!! I hate shopping so I get alot of my clothes as hand me downs from my kids and my mom!!! I don't spend money except on books, if I see one I want, I buy it!!!  Hubby gets four wheelers and three wheelers and boats, I spend on books.

Christa:)

My problem is that I worked in a used bookstore for 18 years and got to read free..so I hate spending my money on books.  Once the libraries let you put books on reserve by computer..I started getting all the best seller suspense books that way.  I get my tc books on here.  I work fill in at an audio book store now..so I get my free fix of audio books from them.

I have always said that my dream is to hit the lottery and be able to buy any book that I want from Amazon.
