Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope your day is warm and peaceful.

I'm reading All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld. Thank you, Netwit, for leading me to this author.

I thought you'd try that one. The premise reminded me of a couple of books you loved - The Wall and the other one which was about a couple of women and set in the Pacific Northwest. Totally forgot the title of that one though.

I am reading Wyld's other book, After the Fire. I am tired of first person narratives for the time being. It seemed that every book I picked up was in the first person and by now the very thought makes me shudder. I'll get over it - after a dozen or so third person books. Maybe.

I'm reading When Times Collide. It's the final book in "The Jenny Series." (#9 I think.)

I like that the books come with a CD. Here's a bit about it.



G. Part 7 - Jenny's Songs - the music for Time & Unforeseen Occurrence. - YouTube


Happy Thanksgiving to all!

"Second Honeymoon" by James Patterson. I'm sticking with quick reads right now as I don't want to start a book in December of 2014 and have it count towards my 2015 Good Reads book challenge. I'm weird that way.

Canoeing With The Cree, by Eric Severeid
In 1930, at age 17, the author set out with a friend to canoe from Minneapolis up the Minnesota River to Browns Valley on the South Dakota border, followed by a short portage to the Red River of the North, whereupon they canoed downriver, past North Dakota and through Winnipeg and beyond through the boreal forest wilderness to the river's outlet on Hudson Bay. The author would later gain fame for his long tenure as a CBS news journalist. The writing is mundane and dated, but the account is certainly interesting.

The End: The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1944-1945, by Ian Kershaw
I bought this book simply because I've read Kershaw's two-volume masterwork, a biography of Adolf Hitler, and expected this book to be similarly excellent. So far, it is. Kershaw is interested in answering the question: why did Germany fight to the bitter end? He notes that this is a very rare development in war. States almost always throw in the towel and seek terms when a war is clearly lost. Absent such a move by the leadership, it is almost invariably overthrown by those uninterested in 'going down with the ship' of state. So far, it is a fascinating look into the question and its possible answers. Highly recommended.
