I bought my sons a number of literary classics.  With a few exceptions, they were not read.  So I’m working my way through a stack of books.  Which I enjoy.



I’ve had a list of books on the refrigerator for years.  My offer to the offspring is to read a book on the list, and provide an oral book report.  I’ll pay you $50.  One child has refused to read anything.  The other has read about 15.  I think I would have read them all.  In a month or less.

I read a book that was gifted to me during my hospital stay.  It was from lDans coworke that loves bourbon

https://www.amazon.com/Bourbon-Curious-Simple-Tasting-Drinker/dp/0760347409

It was interesting to read and but I already knew most of what was said.  But for the novice or the person just beginning to enjoy bourbon I think it would be a perfect book.   The main thing I took away from it was the nose and tasting notes a few tips.

Fifty Shades of Gray

I had to see what so many women love about it.  About a hundred pages in wondering who in the hell wrote this piece of shit.  I keep waiting for the writing to get better, for something to happen, but all I am left with is this feeling that it is extremely easy to trick some people into liking something.

What is it about the truth that some people take it to be too much while others believe it is not enough?

I think I got to page three or four before the bad writing gave me a headache.

Currently reading "Sophistication"

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaleides. New author and looks promising. Whodunit.

A Catcher in the Rye.  J. D. Salinger’s book that was an alleged favorite of Oswald, Chapman, and Hinkley.  Haven’t read it in 40 years.  Has an eerie way creeping up on you.  Depressing as hell.

Just finished Where the Forest Meets the Stars.  

A trio of characters.  A 20 something girl, a 20 something guy, a child.   All with their own troubles.  It developed nicely throughout.  The child helping to guide the relationships and other things through quarks. Wink  

I loved the dialogue.  I cried a few times. I loved the book.  I can see it becoming a movie.  Or as Dan says a chick flick.
