Well now that I am a reader again, I just started The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem:The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of the man who created Tevye.http://www.amazon.com/The-Worlds-Sho...holem+Aleichem

I have only read about 20 pages so far, and it seems to be chock full of facts, but very nicely written; sort of like Sholem Aleichem would have written. Knowing myself I don't know that I will really focus on the facts but am hoping to still enjoy learning about this most remarkable man. One fact I just read (that I retained) was that at the time of his funeral, that was the largest funeral in NYC.

I am reading Life After Life by Jill McCorkle. I just started it but I think I am going to like it. Here's hoping.

I just started The Headmaster's Wife by Thomas Christopher Greene. I'm not even sure what made me look at it -- the title alone should have made me think that it was vapid, bodice-ripper trash -- but I looked. It sounded fabulous. I'm just a few pages in and I definitely like the writing and the tone of the book.

I've found a little gem. I'm only 1/4 through it and I'm having trouble putting it down so I can go to bed.

Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society: A Novel by Amy Hill Hearth.

It's a mix of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt and The Help.
The characters are delicious and the hijinks are great fun.

I just read "I forgot to Remember: A memoir of Amnesia" by Su Meck. The author had a traumatic brain injury and memory loss and had to rebuild her life.

I tore through James Patterson's "NYPD Red" and am now reading "Nature Girl" by Carl Hiaasen. It's not one of the 300+ books on my TBR list, but I needed something I could easily pick up and put down over the weekend, the library had it available in e-format and I've enjoyed a couple of his other books. So far this one isn't my favorite, but it's not my least favorite of his either.

YAY for quoting your own post!!!

I'm about 35% into the book and it's fabulous. I'm enjoying the story, there's some suspense to it, and the writing is stellar!
