A woman ennobles her children through questionable parenting. The writing was there, but I started skipping around in the second half. Somehow this book seemed to be all premise and no real meat.

I'm Glad About You by Theresa Rebeck

This is great for if you wish your trashy romances were way more unpredictable and interesting. The only thing is, you're not guaranteed a happy ending.

Fortunes by Vera Cowie

I pulled this out of a Little Free Library. It was better than terrible. If this same book was written today by a big name author I think it would be a little thinner on all the art and auction details. But...still pretty terrible.

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

Hooray for book clubs, because I never would have read this otherwise. Funny, dramatic, and about not just people but the West itself. How often do you get to watch a play where the stage is also a character?

I have two thoughts, initially.

1. Why is everyone such a Jonathan Franzen hater? He's amazing. But
2. This is not his best book.

The beginning was uncomfortable, but interesting, and then the beginning is over and you realize the rest of the book is going to be in an entirely different voice, and all of a sudden you're reading the end, which is long, and also uncomfortable, bu ...more
