We Took to the Woods by Louise Dickinson Rich
Copyright 1942

I just started reading this book.
I find it an interesting read about woman writing her story of her family living in rural Maine and how they coped with life there.
It sounded like a hard life without a lot of the modern conveniences, but they learned and they managed.

I can't wait to finish it and give to some friends of mine that keep a place in Maine. I know they will enjoy this book.

INFERNO by Dan Brown
Very Good book and very hard to put down.

The problem is...as I started this, gee it all sounds familiar...as I was getting to the last chapter I know I have read this before. LOL

His book visits the cities of Florence, Venice and eventually ends in Turkey.
Having done some traveling, this book brings back images that I have also observed.

Enjoyed the movie and this book as well.

I'm reading " L is for Lawless" by Sue Grafton. I always wanted to read her books but never did get to them. Now that I'm retired I found the time. I'm an avid reader of other authors (James Patterson, Richard North Patterson, Lisa Scottoline to name a few), but I'm glad I finally got to Sue Grafton's. I've really enjoyed them so far.

I'm still reading "The Fix"...but my bedtime book is "The Arrivals" by Meg Mitchell Moore.
Pretty good.
A family's grown children (3) have unexpectedly returned home with their own unique problems. And of course nothing is revealed outright, but gradually (I think) the parents will be told.

Found a new one for me by David Baldacci..."The Fix".
I get most of my reading done in the gym while I'm on the stationary bicycle.
When I take a book to bed...it seems i can't get past two pages before I get sleepy.

Reading a trilogy right now. I had read the first 2 books a couple of years ago but didn't get the 3rd, so I finally ordered the 3rd from the library and am re-reading the first two before I start the final book, since it's been awhile and I forgot the intricacies of the plot.

It's a great sci-fi trilogy by Ann Leckie: Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Sword, Ancillary Mercy

Good Book...almost done. Father and Daughter are both police officers. She gets involved in a case that leads to other investigations. Of course she meets someone too. emoticon

The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Fitch. Haven't finished it yet. Takes place before and during the Russian revolution and I'm finding the political details really interesting.

I finished See how She Dies by Lisa Jackson It was good but not her best, just my opinion.

I just finished reading The Child Next Door by Shalini Boland.
A good psychological thriller with a super twist to the end.
