I just finished The Art of Hearing Heartbeats - meh. It wasn't bad at all, but I found myself rushing through the last 100 pages just to be done. The beginning was intriguing though....

Not sure what I'll read next.

Okay, technically, I'm not yet reading this book-because I'm in second place waiting for it be returned to/available at library.
But I'm sure I will read & enjoy it when finally I can get my hands on it, because I've read the author's other books & they were excellent:
"Being Mortal: Medicine and what matters in the end" by Atul Gawande (2014)-first found his eloquent writing in the New Yorker magazine many years back.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. A wonderful (believe it or not) Young Adult Fiction book, narrated by Death, which will both warm and chill you, and bring both tears of joy and sorrow to your eyes.

I just read a line (snippet) that stopped me cold and sent shivers up my spine.

'Summer came.
For the book thief, everything was going nicely.
For me, the sky was the color of Jews.'



God!


Every now and then a line just reaches into the chambers of the human heart, deeper than we knew anything could, and lodges itself there. This line did that to me - and it's not just because I'm a writer... or Jewish.


Mahrie.

I've been in a reading slump. I have two books stated and they are just not holding my interest right now. I went to something lighter and cheerier. I just finished Welcome To Serenity by Sherryl Woods. It is a romance that takes place at Christmas time. It was a sweet story with a happy ending and only 2 pages out 400 with any sex

I think Sheryll Woods might be the cleaner type romance books some of you would enjoy


Last night I started The Taking by Dean Koontz…but that may be put on hold depending on what library books I find


Today my DH is taking me to our new local library…for the first time I haven't been to a library for books since September…it's going to be a grand day

Hi Lisa,I had also been in a reading slump,choosing to play my PC games instead.I still didn't start English Trifle last night like I was going to!

I just reserved the first and third books in the Sweet Magnolia series by Sherryl Woods.They sound good,and I enjoy series set in a community with recurring characters.But I hate stories of cheating husbands,especially when he doesn't even grovel to get back in the good graces of his ex wife,so I am skipping book 2,lol!

Hope you have a wonderfully rewarding day at the library.
