While I am doing chores or knitting under the cat, I enjoy listening to audiobooks that I have checked out of my public library using the Libby app.  I can play them on my cell phone or on my tablet and use the timer function when I am playing a bedtime story to myself.

My current “listen” is American Gods by Neil Gaiman.  I first read it long ago and have a copy in my personal library, but I love the sound of NG’s words and voice, so I am enjoying consuming them in this way for a change.  I may need to read it yet again because I have been listening while distracted through too many key incidents.

Welcome August!

Am not going to recommend MRS. EVERYTHING yet. STarted it last night and there mucho graphic sexual scenes and I’m only a few chapters in. It’s a long book so maybe it’ll settle down.  Am not a prude but this was too much, too soon! I prefer to get on with the story!

I thought about becoming a psychiatrist or psychologist but never pursued it.  The mind and its troubles has long held and interest for me.  I spent some time visiting in psychiatric hospitals when I was younger.  It was interesting and also rather scary.

I haven't started anything else yet.  It will either be a Patricia Cornwell, Dr Scarpetta, novel I haven't rad yet or a thrIller, Forgotten Bones by Vivian Barz,that I downloaded to my Kindle app.

Yes, Joy, I, too enjoyed THE SILENT PATIENT.  Spent several years nursing in psych hospitals. 

Am currently reading THREE THINGS ABOUT ELSIE  by Joanna Cannon who is a doctor specializing in psychiatry.

Next up is Jennifer Weiner’s MRS. EVERYTHING

I rarely come to this site, spending most of my time on Facebook.  But, I came to visit today.  Have anyone read The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelaides?  I just finished it last night and I really enjoyed it.
