Beezerette, I’m a long time night reader.  During the day I’ve found some good movies on both the BBC and BYU channels.  Can only stomach so much of the current news!

Comment by Beezerette on Wednesday

I have just finished reading all the Tony and Anne Hillerman books and have started to read Tana Finch books, as recommended to me by some Louise Penny fans.  I reread all of Louise Penny's books and listened to the audios this lockdown time, before I allowed myself to read the new one.  That really helped me get through this pandemic time!  I am sure avoiding TV and news lately, so books are my friends!

I just finished the story of Ada Blackjack by Jennifer Niven.  A true story of amazing survival.

I am reading Early Riser by Jasper Fforde and just completed The Constant Rabbit by the same author. He has a unique perspective on things.

I'm doing the same, Slopok - reading A Promised Land a few chapters at a time, also liking it so far.

Comment by Slopok on January 3, 2021 at 1:52am

I'm reading Obama's book at present A promised Land  701 pages and small print. I bought a headband magnifier with light. It came with 5 different lens so I can change the font size and read in bed and not disturbing Trish. Works. 

The book is holding my interest but I'll read a couple of hours and then put it down for a day and read my other current book.

I have started back visiting our library. It has changed a lot but has more services than before.

In past 6 months I have sort of changed my choice of writing styles.  In the past most everything was male popular writers of mystery.  Chiefly law enforcement or legal formulas.

Have switched to Jodi Picoult and others on Audiobook.  Currently reading a bunch of large print condensed books. Not familiar with any of the Authors.  Most are romance or lifestyle struggles.

This weekend hope to install hoopla or other sites to order Audiobooks on line.  Our community Library is under construction.  I REALLY miss selecting books in person!

Thought about driving to other libraries in our county but think they are only doing pick up service as well because of Covid.

This has made me appreciate their service in my life!

Just finished that book, Carci. I agree, good book. Happy New Year and rabbit cubed.
