I haven't talked about books I'm reading lately.....
In the past 2 months, I've read the following:
Killing Jesus by Bill O'reilly
The One and Only by Emily Giffin
A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison (my choice for book club this month!)
Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillipp Sendker
and I am about 1/2 way thru A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn
(wow - a really good history book!!!)
I have truly loved all the above books and highly recommend them!
Trying to keep myself busy while Duane is recuperating from his bad cough - I stumbled upon a list of 100 books to read before you die.....I had read a surprising number of them. Some were more "textbook" in nature, so I think I'll pass on those.
But, I picked out the following list for the coming year. I'll let you know how it goes!
