Reading pretty slowly due to lots of work lately, but it's pretty good so far. Set in Colorado during the Depression...

I always enjoy Deaver, and this one was particularly good. The tale is told backwards! It probably wasn't good for me save as entertainment but that's good enough! Getting ready to start Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I'…

This is a book put together prior to the 2004 election by folks hoping to rid themselves of George W. Bush. It is funny and sad. It has neologisms, generally related to politics of that time, but also timeless. There are…

This is based on a true story of resistance in Nazi Germany. I don't expect it to be happy but have heard good things about it...

Ooh, I have that one on my wish list. I loved Hodgman's The Areas of My Expertise. He is a gold mine of unusual and funny tidbits!

I just like paper, plus it's easy to find free and cheap books. I can carry them anywhere and don't have to worry about recharging, etc. I do like audiobooks and occasionally will listen to one. I don't own a Kindl…

Now I've moved on to The Pleasure Book, by Julius Fast. It's a collection of things that bring people pleasure so the reader might try some new things!

One is The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, which I have listed before. Still reading it. Have also picked up Man after Man, by Dougal Dixon, a trippy look at a possible future of several different species of man…

It was pretty good. Certainly different from anything else I have read! Now I'm starting The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, by Anne Fadiman...

I learned this in my last book (As They Were by M.F.K. Fisher). It's a wind specific to part of France and the Mediterranean.

I am thoroughly enjoying this collection of short stories from various southern authors. All are set in the late 19th or early 20th century - authors like Faulkner, O. Henry, Zora Neale Hurston, Mark Twain, and a lot I h…

This is a good read, with a wide variety of authors (in gender, race, socioeconomic status, etc.). No pandemics in sight!

A collection of essays... good so far.

This is one I somehow never got assigned in school. Better late than never!

by Elizabeth George. I loved The Fourth Bear! Jasper Fforde is always a hoot. I generally love Elizabeth George, too, so this new one is a treat.

Occasionally I'll have more than one, but I don't like it!

I can always count on Fforde for a fun ride. This book is in his Nursery Crimes series. Have only read one chapter so it's hard to know where it's going...
