Typical light southern inspired story by Fannie. I am enjoying this one
Thanks for that one. I have never read anything by Fannie Flagg. That looks like a fun book.

That one is on my list



I am now reading The Fault in Our Stars. I like this one much better than the other John Green books I have read.

Do those two books come as a boxed complementary set?

======

I started Ian McEwan's "Sweet Tooth" last night. I've never become a McEwan fan, but I'm enjoying this so far. There is a kind of edgy sexuality about MeEwan's books that doesn't always put me at ease. Like the subtext is not quite sub- enough. "Sweet Tooth" is written in a female first-person, and I admire a male writer who can pull that off.

The Deserter's Tale: The Story of An Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away From The War In Iraq. Quite interesting so far.

Well, it's like this: I started reading 1177 B.C. : The Year Civilization Collapsed by Eric H. Cline. I started on the sample and then read a little of this, that and the other thing because it was a little on the expensive side, even as an e-book. But I really, really, really wanted to read it so I bought it. It's next year's birthday present to myself since I am pretty sure I already used up this year's birthday present to myself.

1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed (Turning Points in Ancient History): Eric H. Cline: 9780691140896: Amazon.com: Books

And then a veritable tsunami of doctors' appointments, baby showers, deaths, dog vet appointments, and other things rained down on me and this month isn't over yet. Birthdays and more showers are yet to come, along with mud season (dogs, you know how it is) because spring finally arrived (I think. I heard rumblings about 10 cm of snow for tonight and tomorrow.)

So all I can say is that I'm still on that book and I was liking it but I haven't been able to focus on more than a line here and there for at least two weeks (?) And now I just have to lie down and recuperate from this day which has given me a terrible headache.

I just started Outlander which kept me company while home sick, and I'm enjoying it. The household has been hectic, so reading time has been minimal. Finishing up on Bourne Identity which I adored, and kinda lost interest in the Fountain Society, I liked the concept but it kinda washed out later in the book.
