It must have been your post then. I think it was or is on sale but I read the sample first. The quality of the writing is very good, I thought, from what I've read so far.

Who wrote The Age of Miracles that you are talking about?


I just finished reading Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. It is a story of two people who under normal circumstances would have never met. Will is a quadriplegic who was once a very successful businessman who was also very adventurous. Lou is a 26 year old woman who has never left her small town and is content with her very small life. Lou is hired to watch Will. It is their story...through the ups and downs, the laughter and the tears....and you will have tears. I really liked it.



Last night I started Blackbird A Childhood Lost And Found by Jennifer Lauck.

Just finished one of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books (I always enjoy them) and will start another of Alexander McCall Smith's No 1 Ladies Detective Agency novels, "The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection". I'm on a light summer reading kick right now and this will do nicely.

Those No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books are so delightful. I laugh, I cry, I laugh again and I then read the next one. I've never gone wrong with McCall Smith. He's an excellent writer.

Cold In July by Joe Lansdale. Gritty Texas thriller with lots of twists and turns and some great southern dialogue.
Just made into a movie with Michael Hall and Don Johnson.
