    Is no one reading?!?

    So, I recently read The Editor by Steven Rowley. I really enjoyed it. Juxtaposed with Time Quest (film...Bruce Campbell) we watched yesterday which was also about Jackie Kennedy and was not nearly as good. Before that, I did a re-read of Terry Pratchett's The Shepherd's Crown, which is fun.

    A flicker in the dark. It’s a murder mystery.

    WILL by Will Smith

    Did you like it? I've heard mixed reviews. Not much of a non- fiction person but....

    I just picked up this book over the weekend. So far it is a slow read but I'm still hopeful.

    I am listening to LIFE by Keith Richards (narrated by Johnny Depp, natch!) and enjoying it. Recently finished Huma Abedin’s BOTH/AND which
    I very much enjoyed.

    Well *that* looks interesting. :)

    My current reads have just been chick fluff brain candy. Nothing memorable. :/

    Love Terry Pratchett, I’m about to dig out Unseen Academicals. I showed my two youngest kids his Going Postal and Colour of Magic works that had been made for tv over Xmas

    I do too. The book Colour of Magic is a bit weird (Rincewind is not my favorite) but I still love it. I didn't realize they did Going Postal. Must look for it. I have Colour of Magic on dvd...really enjoyed the...Hogfather? And animated Soul Music. I just looked there are loads I have not seen! Must find!!!

    Death is my fave character ever, he’s just amazing. Soul music is the best of his books, we go the easy way round and introduce the kids via the idea of the Wee Free Men for starting to read Pratchett because if you can’t fall in love with those little blue guys then all may as well be lost.
    Agreed Rincewind for me is just a hard character to gel with but the books are still worth a read.

    I have trouble choosing a favorite. It isn't Rincewind...but beyond that...<shrugs>. Love Ventinari, Vimes, all the witches, most of the wizards, Death, Susan, the monks, William de Word...well, you get the idea. Funnily enough, my first Pratchett was Lords and Ladies but I bought it on accident (back in those book club days). Who can't love the Wee Free Men!?! And Maurice. And the diggers...and Johnny Maxwell...

    I'm currently reading the Anthropocence Reviewed, which is by John Green and I am really enjoying it a lot! It's non fiction, which i don't usually get too into, but he's so interesting. it's processing, and history, and a bit of story telling about John's life and how he's processed the pandemic and all sorts of stuff, all while being pretty fun

    There are plenty of pitfalls to be wary of, he notes. As fulfilling as virtual worlds may become, people will need real food, drink and exercise, and perhaps even the odd glimpse of daylight, to keep their bodies from withering away. The risks may be trivial for decades yet, Chalmers says, but a gradual trend towards virtual living could eventually raise new health issues.

    My beloved readings have been by by Sandra Guilland: the trilogy: MANY LIVES AND SECRET SORROWS OF JOSEPHONE BONAPARTE, TALES OF PASSION TALES OF WOE, THE GREATEST DANCE ON EARTH. Also, all books by David McCullough. Currently reading THE GREATER JOURNEY, Americans in Paris. Good reading!

    If you want to really laugh and follow a romantic adventure in France, read Nina George's The Little Paris Bookshop!

    Ice Burned. It's written by a person I used to train with. Having been there I keep picking out so many things from our collective experience. I suspect it was written as a way to get out some
    lingering emotions and trauma from those days. It needs further editing but it's kind of a fun read as I pick out parts and say omg I remember that....it's fiction but not really.
