I love the dog avatar...is he/she yours?
I'm enjoying The Limpopo Academy though I'm listening to the audio version this time. I wasn't sure at first if I would lilke it but I am enjoying it. I find the names to be harder to follow without being able to see the words. Have you read his Scotland Street series? I've enjoyed that one. Those books too are a gentle "pick-me-up" (well said!).I too read Maeve Binchy faithfully. She's another one with a kind view of the world. I liked her books a lot.I've been reading Michael Connelly for years and usually enjoy his books. He's managed to avoid having only the one series so he hasn't become too repetititous.
I too really enjoyed it--more than I expected. I hope the author writes another one!
I listened to the audio version of Ready Player One and enjoyed it. I'll be curious to hear what you think of the book. The audio book was read by Wil Wheaton.
I loved THE DOVEKEEPERS. Hoffman is one of my favourite authors
I'm glad to hear this. I thought his way of handling a trilogy sounded brillient . But others seen put off.
Thank you very much.
Sherry,Would you be willing to select four or five candidates for the March Good Reads group read? You have done this before so you know that we just need the titles and we will do the rest. If you are interested, send me a note with the candidates. If not, let me know as soon as possible so we can ask someone else.Thank you,Don K.
I was interested in your review of Night Circus. Opinions vary widely on this one. I read the first page on Amazon. I think I could give it a try.
I read them annually for decades but haven't read them for many years now. Too many unread books, too little time;-)
First time or a reread for The Fellowship?
Thanks for the news that "V is for..." will be out next month! That's always good news.
OH! I didn't know sign ups were up yet!!!!!I'll hurry on over. Thanks!

Hi Sherry. I know what you mean about life interfering. It's my complaint sometimes about working for a living. The working interferes with the living! I try to write down titles when I come across them or log them on my Shelfari shelf. I get titles from friends or family or sometimes from book reviews. I belong to one book club at my library and they come up with good books. Sometimes I go online and try one of the sites where you put in a couple titles of books you like and then it suggests other authors. (I don't do that often but have come up with a couple books that way!)The important part for me is to write them down so that when I'm looking for a book, I can pull out my list. I keep a small tablet in my purse for book titles.
Sherry, I see you're reading The Outlander. Let me know what you think. I read it a couple years ago.
Thank you very much!!!
We'll miss you Sherry! I always enjoy your comments so get caught up and rejoin us please! Still feel free to vote on selections because that way perhaps we'll end up with a book you're already reading. I read Cutting for Stone last year and I agree that my memory is not what it used to be. I've ordered it from the library and hope to skim it to refresh my memory. No matter how much we read, there are still so many books out there!
Discussion questions for Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese have been posted on Good Reads. I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s thoughts about this book. Please join us if you get a chance, and you can still vote for the June read.
Lol Yes it is! It looks like I am a reading maniac!
