Painting the inside of the house so I needed easy entertainment via audio books.

The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pick-up Artists by Neil Strauss.

American Carnage by Tim Alberta and Insane Clown President by Matt Taibbi.

American Carnage has been very neutral in it's opinions so far despite the fact that it leans anti-Republican. They have said negatives on both parties - which I like.

John Connelly. Big difference from Michael Connelly!

Well I almost gave up on Dandelion Wine but luckily at about just past the 10% mark it got real good. (so now I am at about 15% but enjoying it and not going to give up). Firehorse I loved All Over But the Shoutin. I read Ava's Man or something like that - his follow up about his mother and enjoyed that too but All Over was better IMO.

Hi Mayvenne,

I can't remember reading "Dandelion Wine" which is on my TBR list, but I just finished her newest "The Strawberry Thief" and I loved it. I am a big fan of Joanne Harris, hope you stick with it!

After the Flood by Kassandra Montag.

Dystopian novel set 100+ years in the future, when the world has been flooded & only a few mountaintop islands remain.
Received some rave editorial reviews.
Dark, brutal, disturbing - so much so that I wish I hadn't started it. I'm halfway through it though so might as well finish it.

I had to put down The Secret History. I made it halfway through hoping to get into it but, geez, the characters are so damn pretentious and unlikable. I can't remember who it was that told me to push through to get to the AHA moment - is this where I push through? I don't know if I can do another 300+ pages of this

Finished reading [b]Educated[b] yesterday. It really drew me in. I’m aware her estranged family disputes much of it.
