  • Finished Victim very quickly. An Ordinary Youth by Walter Kempowski is going much slower...

  • Finished Kent Haruf, Eventide and I'm starting Victim by Andrew Boryga. @Catfish_Fan I'm not surprised you're enjoying Harry Potter a second time round. I read the whole series twice and some books three times (with my kids)!
  • Is this your first time reading it, Doug? How fun! I'm reading Kent Haruf again. Eventide.

  • Reading Go, Went, Gone by Jenny Erpenbeck.
  • Trying to finish Maryse Conde, The Gospel According to the New World. I guess I get the humor?

  • Generations by Lucille Clifton. Loved it! Only wish it had been longer...
  • Really enjoying Pico Iyer, The Half-Known Life: In Search of Paradise.

  • The Farming of Bones was heavy, but I'm glad I read it. I didn't know this history until recently. Now I'm going to look for something very different. I need something uplifting.
  • I finished James and I'm glad I read it. It was so imaginative! He probably would have written an even better book without the Twain connection, but that enriched the original and crafted an intriguing dialogue. Now I've started Edwidge Danticat's Farming of Bones, and I'm enjoying it too.

  • Still making my way through Huckleberry Finn and James at the same time. I'm really enjoying it.

  • Just got it today on Kindle and so far I like it, @Btrflydog! I never liked reading the dialect in Twain and so Everett's selective use of it seems really creative. I reread just a bit of Huckleberry Finn before I started James, and I'm glad I did. I think I might keep them both going at the same time.
  • HOORAY for you @Catfish_Fan !!!
  • I'm reading The Cost of Free Land: Jews, Lakota, and an American Inheritance by Rebecca Clarren, but I'm also thinking I'm going to break down and splurge on James by Percival Everett.

  • Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
  • Keep getting distracted as I try to start The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store... The Memory Index by Julian R. Vaca and This is How You Lose the Time War by El-Mohtar and Gladstone are both calling my name, and they're both e-library books so I "have" to read them before the McBride book, which I own.
  • Just finished Aminatta Forna, The Devil that Danced on the Water, and I'm getting ready to start The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride. We've had a heck of a beginning to the year with health challenges and too much work so it's great to be back here! I'm even considering another Alphabetical reading…
  • The Great Escape: A True Story of Forced Labor and Immigrant Dreams in America by Saket Soni. Horrifying how thoughtless greed can make us...
  • I'm enjoying There There by Tommy Orange. Each chapter features a different Native American from Oakland (mostly) and their voices are compellingly rendered.
  • Just about finished with The Leavers by Lisa Ko. Planning to start There There by Tommy Orange with The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store by James McBride on deck.
  • Wow, this is AMAZING! What DO people do with all their time? They can't all be watching TikTok, can they?
  • Salt Houses by Hala Alyan
