I took a break from serious reading and have been devouring the works of Louise Penny. I don't even generally like mysteries, but she's a really good writer.
I am just starting The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis. It looks to be fascinating. Tell ya later.
In September or October, I started watching (for the first time ever) the entire seven series of Gilmore Girls. I cried my eyes out when I watched the season 7 finale about two weeks ago.
Then I watched Gilmore Girls, A Year in the Life - four episodes filmed ten years later. Finished the last one Monday night I think. Cried my eyes out again. No matter how much my brain knows it is all a freaking TV show, I didn't want them to be gone from my life. How loo-loo-bell is that? LOL!
Just bought a delightful memoir by one of this website's members, Ruth Marimo; OUTsider: Crossing Borders. Breaking Rules. Gaining Pride. I'm halfway through and love it.
The last forum I joined (an MK -missionary kid-forum) had a member, Les Arbuckle who wrote his memoir of living in Saigon as a pagan kid, just before the outbreak of the Vietnam war.
Another friend of someone on that same forum, Ron Snell, wrote his "It's a Jungle Out There!" memoir series about growing up with stone age natives in the Amazon jungles of Peru. It's a wonder that guy survived childhood, but he did, and the books are a scream, if you aren't squeamish.
I usually read several books at a time, so I'm also in the middle of rereading all the James Herriot books, rereading the Misha Burnett Catskinner series, depending on which book comes up first on my Galaxy Note tablet. I'm partway through many other books and might switch to reading them instead, depending on my mood.
I was introduced by my son-in-law to Daniel Quinn's books ISHMAEL and THE STORY OF B. Am currently reading the 3rd in the series, MY ISHMAEL. These stories present an entirely different way of looking at civilization, and how we got to where we are today, in terms of culture. It's quite fascinating to me.
I just finished All "The Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr. Highly recommended! I also read "The Girl on the Train" recently and loved it! I also liked the movie very much. I am a fan of Game of Thrones and I still like Survivor and Amazing Race. I like HBO because there are no commercials - I like Bill Mahar and the Daily Shoe (also Trevor Noah's book "Born A Crime" is really really good.
