I am lucky enough to be in a book club. This pushes me to read a variety of books which I ordinarily would have just blown by, or not even discovered. We all get into our habits. Some of us read only novels, some only non-fiction and some people don’t read much at all. Even the definition of what a book is can be interesting. I discovered that a couple of my friends don’t think a book of short stories is a book at all. Interesting to me, the truth for them.
These are some of my recent reads:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt– Very interesting and very long, but worth it.
How to Make Money by Blogging by Bob Lolitch –I bought the e-book edition for less than a dollar. This is an extremely useful and instructional book.
Fires of Alexandria by Thomas K. Carpenter –Fun, easy to read and a nice historical novel.
Empty Mansions, The Mysterious Life of Hugette Clark and the Spending of an American Fortune by Bill Dedman and Paul Newell, Junior — A really interesting and fascinating story of the long life of a very wealthy woman who had her eccentricities, and probably a lot of reasons for them. A true story and not a novel so it may not have the excitement some are expecting. I was inspired to write about it. Just click here to see more.
That’s it for now. More to come as I journey through the land of books!. What are you reading?
