I’m reading. I really enjoyed The Grapes of Wrath, reread more recently. Didn’t enjoy Midnight Children but know others have. Just finished The History of Wolves which I enjoyed. Now reading Kathy Reichs, easy to follow and interesting. I also like something non challenging at bedtime, often about nature. Soothing and more easy to put down.
Dolly I’m still reading. I’m now on the last of the first 5 books by Laura Ingalls-Wilder, ‘By the Shores of Silver Lake’. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading these again. I re-read ‘The Great Gatsby’ last year, I still didn’t get it. It left me feeling sad. Loved One Hundred Years if Solitude though and Rebecca is on my list as I’ve never read it. I never finished Midnight’s Children. I tried twice and that’s enough for one lifetime. WMF I have enjoyed the Kathy Reichs books I’ve read. I don’t tend to read before bedtime as I stitch whilst watching TV. No idea what to read next. Have a few books on my Kindle App but they are all non-fiction. Can’t read those later in the day - my brain can’t take it in
One hundred years of solitude confused the life out of me with all the similar names before my brain turned to Covid mush.At the moment I'm ploughing through Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellman. She references Laura Ingalls-Wilder quite a lot (although tbf she references pretty much everything.) It's taken me 200 of the 1000 pages to decide to stick with it, and if the bookmark ever falls out I'm completely stuffed. The main issue is the size of the blasted thing - it's a proper book not a kindle one and it weighs a ton . No chance of reading it in the bath. All I can say is, it's a good thing the libary is closed so there's no rush to take it back.
Have finished 'Of Mice and Men', this is one of the 100 books to read before you die, it is a quick and easy read but in all honesty I don't see what all the fuss is about, I just wanted someone to throttle Lennie all the way through. Grapes of Wrath is on the list too, hope that is better.Charly - I know what you mean about hunting, I am vegan and I know that choosing to do that is a luxury, I don't disagree with hunting for survival and know if push came to shove I would do it, I have mixed feelings about eating animals and animal products, on the one hand I think who the bliddy hell do we think we are and on the other I know that so many people rely on the industry for their livelihood, I am a realist I suppose, we should be doing it better and not to excess.
