Yesterday, I read "Mobituaries" by the comedian Mo Rocca. He goes back and gives recognition to some of the lesser known aspects of people throughout history, and lesser known deeds of well known people. It is a very entertaining and educational ...

A couple of days ago I read "Do You Mind If I Cancel?: Things that Still Annoy Me" by Gary Janetti, who was one of the writers for the "Will and Grace" TV show. I generally don't find humor books to be all that funny, but this one is hilarious. ...

I’ve just started reading, ‘All the light we cannot see’ by Anthony Doerr. It was recommended by a good friend, I wouldn’t usually read war books, (war horse made me bawl as a teen!), but the recommendation and fact my library had it mean ...

Yesterday I read "You"re Never Too Small To Make A Difference" by Greta Thurnberg. It only takes one to two hours to read, but it is definitely worth the time I had read that she was autistic. She in fact has Asperger's Syndrome, which is a ...

Just read "Permanent Record" by Edward Snowden. I found it very disturbing that using just about any kind of technology is being recorded by the government for possible future retrieval. It is a very well written book. He covers his biography ...

Now I’m reading: Nut Shell by Ian McEwan. Once you get into the premise of it being written by a baby in the womb it’s pretty good. Some lovely descriptions and interesting social commentary as the story unfolds. It’s a kind of murder ...

Just read the first three in a book series about a dystopian future, where most of the primary characters are LGBTQ+, called "The Road To Nowhere" by Meg Elison. It is actually pretty good. The books in order are "The Book of the Unnamed ...

Just finished reading Elton John's Official biography. It was very enjoyable. A life that is/has been funny, sad and over the top.

"Swipe Right For Murder" by Derick Milman, was a nice surprise. If you like fast paced action and unlikely heroes, this may be a book for you. What is surprising is that the protagonist is a gay high school senior who gets caught up between ...
