Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit... Winter is half over! Tomorrow is Groundhog Day and we in the snow covered Midwest will be anxious to find out if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow and run back underground for 6 more weeks.
Short month... Short days...
A good time for reading in front of a blazing fire or just in a comfortable chair.
I just finished rereading All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and reading a book a second time is unusual for me. I was surprised at how much I had forgotten and I had a new insight into the meaning of the book's title.
"Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever."
It is a wonderful book and I recently learned that it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2015.
What books have you read a second or third time? What are you reading now?
I am now starting The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. It was wildly popular about 10 years ago when it came out. So far I am trying to figure out why. Will post more on it later.
Happy reading, stay warm...
I agree about the ending when I first read it I expected something else and was a little disappointed... this time I focused on the story, not the ending and I loved the whole experience.
SORROW ROAD sounds like it focuses on the same time in history (D-Day) and I think I will enjoy it...
thanx for the recommendation rapa...
Continuing in my nonfiction mode (having recently finished Hillbilly Elegy) I am now reading The Earth is Weeping The epic story of the Indian wars for the American West, by Peter Cozzens. It received an excellent review in my local newspaper recently, and, I understand, elsewhere as well. It is somewhat long (well over 500 pages) but not terribly so for a book on history. In my rather slow reading style for books of this type, I will certainly need to keep diligently at it to finish it in my allotted time of three weeks before it becomes due. It is very good, so I hope to do so.
I put it on hold at my library, rapa. There are 8 holds ahead of me, so it will probably be Summer reading.
I loved The News of the World but if you can't get it soon, try The Color of Lightning also by Paulette Jilles... another good one.
I read News of the World and several others by her set in and around the Civil War. They were some of the best books I read last year...
