Yep, still reading. In between my gloom and doom books, I finished Kimberly Williams-Paisly’s book, Where the Light Gets In. It’s about her mom’s Alzheimer’s, or rather a variant of. It was one of the 99 cent on sale books. It might have been worth that much.
Alzheimer’s seems to run in my mom’s side of the family – great grandmother and grandmother. Mom had a stroke before she could be diagnosed, but I was seeing some things similar to what the grands had been doing.
Anyway, I’ve read several books on Alzheimer’s. Does this help me any? Maybe a little.
Right now, I could use a book on cable repair. We had some very strong winds a couple of days ago and they ripped out my cable connection to my house. I only have intermittent internet, depending on which way the wind is blowing, I guess.
I’m on the repair list for next Wednesday. Bummer.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Kondo, Marie - I’ve been reading this for a couple of years. I like it but I only read a couple of sections then go back to fiction until I remember it again.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by McNamara, Michelle - Currently reading this book club choice. Interesting so far.
Abduction (A Shefford-Johnson Case, #1) Dyson, Wanda L. [ 3 of 5 stars ]
Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse, #5) Harris, Charlaine [ 4 of 5 stars ]
A is for Alibi (Kinsey Millhone, #1) Grafton, Sue [ 2 of 5 stars ]
The Pigman (The Pigman, #1) Zindel, Paul [ 3 of 5 stars ]
These two in a row I did not finish because I disliked them so much, and that is rare for me.
Murder in Mayberry: Greed, Death and Mayhem in a Small Town by Jack & Mary Branson
@f00l Generally, it’s the writing that turns me off books. Murder in Mayberry spent too much time praising themselves, the victim, and their relationship with the victim and each other then threw in a confusing cast of characters. When I realized I didn’t care who done it, I stopped reading it.
Girl with a Pearl Earring was simply boring. I don’t care about art, that painting or artist.
@callow@f00l@sammydog01 The only book in the Kinsey Milhone series I read was R is for Ricohet.
I found it was a big turn-off, personally.
Is the series just not for me, or was that not a representative sample?
To be clear, I’m not trying to bash the book or the author. I’m not the target audience for everything.
I recently read “Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamist’s Wife” by Irene Spencer, that was really pretty good.
Also, “The Drama Teacher” by Koren Zailckas I just finished yesterday, pretty good there.
Oh! And “The Cast” by Amy Blumenfeld was really good.
oooh! And “The Dream Daughter” by Diane Chamberlain was wonderfullll.
