I can't believe I'm saying this, but, I started The Book of Speculation On Friday and I'm on page 2. I've been traveling so much, when I sit, I fall asleep - unless I'm driving. I'll be home for 7 days, now. I hope to get a couple of books finished.

message 17: by Stacey (new)

Stacey | 66 comments I am reading The Knowledge: A Richard Jury Mystery and listening to A Taste for Death both my favorite authors of mine. Next up is The Word Is Murder. My favorite book recently was I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer and I also loved The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir. Beautifully written memoir.

My memory of childhood and that book is very different. My siblings and parents used to play the card game Authors. Robert Louis Stevenson was only one of the authors represented for whom I never read a book.

When I mentioned this game at the book discussion the other night, I was surprised how many of the attendees did not know of that game.

I started listening to It's Even Worse Than You Think What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America by David Cay Johnston It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America again. (I had to return it before I was finished with it.
