  1. I just found this thread on a search for literature guides. I was wondering if any of you followed through with these ideas and what your final thoughts were.
  2. Back pain is no fun. Praying for immediate relief @Lady Florida.
  3. My fourth child is a Senior this year and I feel exactly the same way.
  4. First book of the year finished, and it was delightful! I loved the colorful cover art too! Miss Benson's Beetle by Rachel Joyce.
  5. I'm fairly certain the first bird I saw yesterday was a large Wood Stork.
  6. Based on YOUR recommendation, I just hit the buy button for The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax (Mrs. Pollifax Series Book 1). I bought the Kindle version along with the optional audible version. I've been looking for a good book to wrap up the year with.
  7. I finished Miracle Creek by Angie Kim this week which I waffled on somewhat. It had an interesting premise and I enjoy courtroom dramas however, somehow I actually felt the author worked way too hard to neatly tie up every character's story line (if that is even possible). She set it up so that she had a tangled knot of every character ending up a possible suspect. Untying this knotty situation bogged down the flow of the book with too many repetitive details.
  8. I finished The Lincoln Conspiracy by Brad Meltzer today. Great book about the foiled assassination attempt before our 16th president was inaugurated.
  9. Finished All the Light We Cannot See on Audible today. I know I'm late to the party on this one but I'm so glad I finally read it. Zach Appelman did a superb job as narrator and it was a great listen while I did my early fall yard work. I can also put another notch on the shelf for WW2 books. Now, what to begin next? 🙂
  10. Yesterday I finished News of the World by Paulette Giles. It is a nice little western and there is a film starring Tom Hanks coming out soon.
  11. I finally finished Rebecca. Thanks to everyone for the recommendation - I'm sure I would have never read this one otherwise. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if the first few chapters were a little tedious.
  12. Finished reading Isaac's Storm: A Man, A Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson. Meticulously researched and vividly written, Isaac's Storm is based on Cline's own letters, telegrams, and reports, the testimony of scores of survivors, and our latest understanding of the hows and whys of great storms. Ultimately, however, it is the story of what can happen when human arrogance meets nature's last great uncontrollable force. As such, Isaac's Storm carries a warning for our time.
  13. I just finished and enjoyed The Little Way of Ruthie Leming, which has me thinking a lot about the value of community.
