So...shelter in place & still being unable to start my new job has me bored to tears lately. My fiance is lucky that he is able to work from home.

I looked at the bestseller list today..........any recommendations? I love reading when it's a book I can't put down, BUT tbh...I haven't read many in the past 5 or 6 yrs.

Thank you...........

Hi Tasha,
Amazon Kindle just recommended this e-book for me today. It's 50 of the greatest masterpieces ever written, for only 1.99!

So if you have a kindle, you can't go wrong with this.

"Before we were yours", By Lisa Wingate. I read this a few years ago & loved it. I also loved the "Kite Runner" by Hosseini.


"The Nightingale" was also a very gripping book, by Kristen Hannah

You specifically want a novel that is a bestseller? Or something that is either/or?

What sorts of books do you like?

Hi....it doesn't have to be a bestseller.....but that's where I looked for ideas. I just started "The Woman in the Window" by AJ Finn.

If you like thrillers, you might like No Exit or The Sundown Motel. You might also like a nonfiction book called American Predator about a serial killer.

Thank you...I just read fiction tho. I don't really want to know more about serial killers. :/

Has anyone read "Where the Crawdads Sing"........& if you did, what did you think? It's been a bestseller for a long time.
