OT: 'Over Fifty'? What are you reading? 3/12 - ?

..... What are you reading now?

Red Hook Road, by Ayelet Waldman
Set on the coast of Maine over the course of four summers, Red Hook Road
tells the story of two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, and of the
ways in which their lives are unraveled and stitched together by misfortune,
by good intentions and failure, and by love and calamity.

As she writes with obvious affection for these unforgettable characters,
Ayelet Waldman skillfully interweaves life’s finer pleasures—music and
literature—with the more mundane joys of living.

Within these resonant pages, a vase filled with wildflowers or a cold beer on
a hot summer day serve as constant reminders that it’s often the little things
that make life so precious.

Jezzie, I'm still doing Christopher Hitchens, God is not Great. I love it. I like that he has such a sense of humor and is SO wise.

I'm reading the bible, NIV version. I have never read the whole thing in my 60 + years, and want to finish it before I die-also doing an online commentary to help me understand it. I try to do a chapter a day, in total it will take over 5 years.

Funny you mentioned this as I found a great site that gives you scriptures daily so at the end of the year you finish the whole Bible. Now I'm doing that too.

On my kindle I'm reading It's a Dunder-Bull Wife by Karen Cantwell. I just love the way she writes. Her books are very entertaining. Never stop reading

No Game for a Dame by M. Ruth Myers.

Ordered Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks from Amazon. About the first Native American Indian to attend Harvard in 1665. Sounds like a Jezzie book to me. I'm anxious to get started.

I just put Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See on my Kindle. Looking forward to starting it as soon as I finish It's a Dunder-Dull Wife by Karen Cantwell. Have you read that one Jezzie? Sounds real good.

Having the Kindle is driving me crazy with reading. I don't have time to be reading and the problem my library loans expire and I haven't finished a book. Then I have to get in line again to get the book. Too cheap to BUY a book.

Finished Caleb's Crossing, excellent. Caleb is an Native American Indian befriended by a preacher's daughter. He ends up graduating from Harvard. The story is of him crossing over from one culture to another. (maybe) Based on fact.

Just started The Hunger Wars by Suzanne Collins, whoa..........another good one. Movie comes out next month I think.

Just finished book one and two of the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins....very interesting and she's an excellent author. The books are very thought provoking. I, too, am Kindle bound and have too much to read as I keep picking up the freebies.I started the Samantha Moon series by J.R. Rain. Interesting setup as it's about a female detective who's a vampire, recently turned who has to cope with children and a husband who is not enthralled with his wife.

Also reading DT (dead tree) books dealing with Probating an estate and The New Atkins for a New You. I, too, am easily distracted. I read. on the average, two or three books a week and have nonfiction stuff that I dip into and out of.

Mind if I join in? I read daily. Just finished David Baldacci "Split Second". Love the murder mystery types. Not sure why. I would NOT want to watch the movie of these things, people dead, shootings, tortures, etc. but find the intrigue behind all of it facinating. Onward to Bottom of the 33rd: Hope, Redemption, and Baseball's Longest Game by Dan Berry. Completely out of what I normally read, but then I need different types. Not sure if I am going to like this one. (also reading Organic Lawn Care, ha ha!)
