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.

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.

Dan had read one of his favorite authors, so when he was done, I picked it up.

Just finished The Guardians by John Grisham

Why do I suddenly feel the need to make a donation to an innocence project organization.

A little slow at the beginning, but so worth it.   I teared up a few times.   I'm an easy crier though.

I have a bit of a backlog going in my book collection. I just finished Soul Music by Terry Pratchett, and am now working on Armageddon Outta Here by Derek Landy, then move onto Bedlam by the same, then The Essential Sandman Volume 5 by Neil Gaiman.

Just got into the newest book from a favorite author, Nevada Barr.  A former Park Ranger with the U. S. Forest Service, she's written many fun books about Anna Pigeon, a Park Ranger who moves around to several National Parks.

The new book, "What Rose Forgot" is a big departure and is deeply chilling.  Rose wakes up outside in just a hospital gown and totally confused about who she is, what's going on and soon finds herself picked up and back in a locked memory care unit.

The author lets us know soon into the book that Rose is being drugged and it seems family is involved. She plots another escape and begins to fight to take back her memory and her life.

I finding the book so disturbing, maybe because I'm old too.  A friend is now dealing with his mother starting to loose her memory and we have a neighbor who's wife is now in long term care.  She's forgotten her husband and even how to stand up...just sits in a wheel chair.

Nevada Barr, who delighted me with her depictions of National Parks while spinning a tale of adventure, now brings to her pages the horrors old people may have to face...and indeed many are along with their family's. 

I've just started the book, but I'll give it four stars.
