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.

Comment by Carci on December 31, 2020 at 1:06pm

Back in the day... Bookoholics listed their one favorite book of the year... I always found a few good reads from my book loving friends.  

I will start by saying my favorite book of 2020 was The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek by Michele Richardson. It got me Googling images of the Kentucky blue people.
