Just finished The Forgotten Bookstore in Paris. Starting The Librarian of Burned Books. I keep saying no more WWII books but here I am reading more. I need to pay better attention, I bought one book twice. Pushed me to finally get a library card.

I just finished reading "Three Weeks with My Brother" by Nicholas Sparks & Micah Sparks. I have to thank Vanessa (Audra Rose) for this book. She sent it too me as part of the "Cabin Fever Reliever" Swap earlier this year. The book parallels Nicholas & Micah's three-week trip around the globe together with stories of their childhood, including the triumphs & tribulations that brought them to this point in their lives. If you are a world-traveller or even a "want-to-be-world-traveller", may I suggest this book to inspire your journeys both at home & far away.

Hi all!!

I just finished The Circus Train by Amita Parikh. I did enjoy the book. It seemed a little lengthy and drawn out now that I think back on it, but perhaps it is because I wasn't able to keep a steady schedule of reading. I am now starting The Girls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustain. Has anyone read either?

It looks like everyone is finding some really great books to read. I am currently reading Natalie Jenner's latest book, "Bloomsbury Girls". The books takes place in London in 1950. The story revolves around a bookstore in London and has an interesting cast of employees. The 3 women that work there are getting fed up with the male employees being promoted and running the bookstore into the ground. Change is in the air for all of them. A really fun and interesting book.

I have gravitated to listening to audiobooks while I quilt. So far I've gone through Terry Pratchett's books and am listening to a collection of Neil Gaiman.

Vanessa Neverwhere is one of my favorites. My daughter and I love the good omens series on Amazon too.

Iím having to read loads of non fiction for work so probably nothing of interest here (business books). Though I am reading about raising sheep!

Shennandoah,
Do you recommend The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script Book?

I just finished Walter Issacson's biography of Benjamin Franklin. Beautifully written and easy to read, I was stunned at how little I knew about one of America's most important Founding Fathers If you love history, this is both a fun and enlightening read.

Thanks for the recommendation Winnie. I read the book and learned more than I had ever known about Benjamin Franklin.

I just finished reading Anna Lee Huber's new book, "Sister's of Fortune". The story is based loosely on the lives of the Fortune sister's. Their family decided to travel back on the Titanic after their 4 month Mediterranean/European/Egyptian tour. The story was based on many actual facts about the passengers and the Titanic. I found it difficult to put down. Hope everyone can find it at their library, its well worth reading!

My husband and I are ready some fun mysteries. Over the years as educators, we have had to read things for our careers. Now retired, we get to read for fun and are really enjoying it! I have been reading Robert B. Parker novels, while my husband has been reading the C.J. Box books. We are enjoying our daily reading time. and enjoying retirement as well. It is so much fun hearing what everyone is reading!

I just finished reading this book. Much easier to get through and comprehend than most books on the topic and I have a few great ideas to use in the garden including a productive and eco friendly way to cool down the greenhouse in a Texas summer. Canít wait to see if it works!

Nancy, I really enjoy mysteries and am a big fan of Jacqueline Winspear's "Maisie Dobbs" series.
Have fun using the ideas from your book Shennandoah, hope they come out like you planned.
.
I just finished a terrific book that just came out this year written by Sara Nisha Adams. It is her second book called, "The Twilight Garden". It takes place in London during 2019 where a couple of strangers are forced to share their back garden. They finally quit bickering with each other when someone puts photos of what the shared garden looked like years ago. Restoring the garden helps bring them and their community together as friends. Really a pleasant and cheerful read though the ending made me tear up. I look forward to reading more books from this new author.

Keep reading!
