This morning, I finished reading'Before The Fall' by Noah Hawley. I figured out who the 'bad guy' was with 150pgs left to read.,I recommend this suspenseful thriller,even though its a tad too long at 390pgs. The author created the TV show "Fargo' based on the Coen brothers movie of same name

I'm a member of a local independent bookstore here in the city. Every summer they come out with a list of recommendations from other independent booksellers around the country of books to read either for a book group or individual.,mostly in paperback.There is the top 10 selections,other categories included are memoirs/mysteries/history etc. I try to read some of the books which sound interesting to me. The last book I read"Lab Girl' by Hope Jahren was on the list,took me 3 days to finish,was good

The book I started yesterday is"Before The Fall" by Noah Hawley,can't put it down. The story is about a multi millionaire media guy,along with his wife&daughter,and others died in a plane crash. The only survivors are their 4yr old son,JJ and a painter,Scott who saves the boy and swims miles in the ocean to shore,what happens to them afterwards. Sue

Yesterday afternoon,I finished "Lad Girl" by Hope Jahren which I really enjoyed.A fast paced book, made me look at trees/flowers/seed in a different way. Hope and her lab partner,Bill have been working together for 20yrs,he's a character in his unique way.

Hope has a Ph.D in paleobiology from Univ of Cal-Berkeley,has 3 Fulbright awards,is one of 4 scientists,only woman to win the Young Investigator Medals in earth science. She has been pursuing independent research in paleobiology since '96.She and her husband,Curt&son live in Hawaii.

I  recommend the book,filled with humor Sue

@LaDolceVita Hey,LVD,thanks for your kind words about the books I read.

I don't turn on the TV most nights until 9pm ,there really isn't anything worth watching unless I've circled a show in TVGuide.If I'm reading a good book,I lose track of time altogether.

I've kept a journal of all the books I've read since 1990,its interesting to see what've I read over the years. Sue

@ksalesWe have lost most of our members here for the same reason.  I did hear that Edie is not well.  It is a shame & it seems impossible to build our membership.  I am a creature of habit so I just keep plugging along!

Glad to be back. I was gone for so long because I got disgusted with the website. I'm computer savvy, but it was more trouble than it was worth. I see than not a lot has changed. I suspect that's why we lost so many of our fellow posters. It's not easy to get to these forums, it's not easy to subscribe to a fourm, and then it's difficult to get notifications when there are new posts.

@ksalesNice to see you back.  Sue (doglover) is our only prolific poster, she reads more books than I do.  Of course I am still reading but not as much as I would like!
