Phil Jensen | 627 comments The On Paths Unknown group is doing a group read of Hamlet in February, FYI. I'm not sure if I'll join yet- February is looking busy.

I picked 10 Days in a Madhouse as one of my Women's Century books. It sounds intriguing, 18th century investigative reporting. Planned on using it as you did for my Bingo non-fiction book, but I'm afraid The Story of My Life game into my hands first.

Is Madhouse worth reading?


message 13: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (tnbooklover) Bob yes definitely worth reading. It's a quick read but it's fascinating what she went through in ten days.


message 14: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (tnbooklover) I finished my banned book Tropic of Cancer and my literary prize from my country (US) The Corrections.

Both were 5 star reads for me.
