I've started reading Inferno by Dan Brown but unfortunately can't seem to get into this book even though I really liked his other books. Going to give it one more chance otherwise it will be going on the bookcase to collect some dust!

yes, tommymac, I struggled a bit with Inferno, it just didn't hold my interest like his other books. the idea was interesting but not the writing. :(

OK, emma, to show willing, just finished Pig's Foot by Carlos Acosta, a Cuban 'spoken' folklore sort of novel, quite upbeat and fun, chosen because it was on the 'new' display in the library (God bless libraries). Pretty good. Not stop the press.

that sounds an interesting book and think I'm going to go with it for my book choice. really like magical realism and have read Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Isabelle Allande but hadn't heard of Carlos Acosta so its always good to find new authors. thanks for that CD and will have to see if I can find it in my library.

One book I have read which I love is 'The Secret Life of Bees' by Sue Monk Kidd. Its been around for quite a while now, since 2003 and even made into a film. The book is about a coming of age for a young girl amidst troubled times. Its a very uplifting book !

Definitely on my read again list.  smile

In current mood, I've had a severe regression back to simpler times of youthful ignorance.

I have very much been enjoying reading Final Fantasy #6, Deathtrap Dungeon for the first time in 30 years.
It's a choose-your-own-adventure book, in an imaginative space that video games now dominate (and very well they also do it - any other gamers on the forum?). This was the only one of the series that I owned back then that I never managed to complete at the time.

Rationing the reading so as to keep the suspense alive, still very enjoyable.

'The unexpected joy of the ordinary' by Catherine Grey.

I bought this pre Covid19, and have just started to read it - interesting, especially in these anything but ordinary times. It is in support of what you have, rather than striving for more (the 'hedonic treadmill'). Current times are also making me think differently about future priorities.
