Finally made some progress here. Under the silver lining category (like Violet Crown's burned fingers), I unexpectedly spent several days at the hospital with close friends as the husband aspirated a medical swish into his lungs and developed chemical pneumonia. (So glad I went and was able to help. He died early yesterday morning - at home.) So, I had some extra time to read.
I finished listening to The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared. Definitely funny & engaging.
I finished the Laura Ingalls Wilder Prairie Fires. I disliked the large amount of space spent on Rose Wilder Lane. I know, I know - she was a huge influence on her mom, helped extensively edit her mom's books, etc. etc. I never liked her and resented spending good reading time on discussions of her travels, her foibles, her obsessions, and her moods. I also felt the author's political beliefs slanted the information in the book. I got tired of reading the author's rants and interpretations of what Laura and Rose really believed and meant. (I also came away with the impression that Rose Wilder Lane was a cougar. ) I dislike Roger McBride even more than I used to. Blah.
Haven't decided what to attack next. Considering a light read like LM Montgomery's Pat of Silver Bush or Emily of New Moon. Or, SWB's Rethinking School (but I'm supposed to pass that along to a friend who needs it first). Or . . . back to my Audible list.
