This made me smile because I always see The Red Tent listed on the very first post in this thread by Isabella in 2006.

I just started Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. It takes place in Seattle Washington in 1986 when inside a hotel the belongings of Japanese families from the 1940's are found. That was when Japanese families were rounded up and sent to camps during WWll. The story takes a man back to that time to an innocent and forbidden love.




BTW….two thumbs up for Cinnamon and Gunpowder especially if you like food and adventure.

I read this one years ago and loved it. My sister let me read her copy and whenever I see it in stores or on Amazon or in thrift shops I always want to pick it up so I can read it again. I hope you continue to enjoy it!

The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright.

I have just finished No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State by Glenn Greenwald. That was a very interesting book.

Light and fluffy seems to be all I can manage recently. Just finished Elin Hilderbrand's Winter Street. Her typical Nantucket story set in a floundering bed and breakfast at Christmas-time. Good enough.

I do like seasonal reading. Along those same lines for a quick read over Christmas it was Nora Bonesteel's Christmas Past by Sharyn McCrumb. That one was a novella, short and sweet. Two separate stories with characters that apparently reoccur in her novels. I haven't read McCrumb in years so they were new to me.

Now I'm reading De Potter's Grand Tour by Joanna Scott. It's about a tour operator who disappears at sea in 1905, leaving behind a wife who gets to unravel his past. So far, so good.

Yesterday, downloaded and read the freebie
KID ME NOT: An anthology by child-free women of the '60s now in their 60s

A Total of 15 essays. I identified with every single page of the first 4 or 5 ... thinking this is great! ...sadly it was downhill from there. Oh well. It was free.
