Let’s share the titles and a few comments about some of the books we’ve each been reading over the past few months. With one addition.
First, write a few sentences about your reading during these troubled times. Are you reading more, less, more fiction or more non-fiction, different genres than you usually choose, rereading, more use of an audible format, etc.? Basically, what is holding your interest now, and is that different than in more ‘normal’ times?
Then cite just a couple of books that have been particularly satisfying along with a few sentences as to the reason(s) those two books have been captivating or significant. Include the title, author, and whether the book is fiction or nonfiction.
Email me (Samesty84@gmail.com) with your responses by Aug. 22 so I can post them by the end of the month.
Thanx in advance.

“The Splendid and the Vile” has occupied my last week or so. Erik Larson takes us on Winston Churchill’s journey through the very beginning of WW II in Britain. Yes, we know the story, but this is a a beautifully documented and highly readable account, and it includes the side stories of several Churchill family members and close confidantes.
