Re reading Beloved by Toni Morrison loaded with rich tapestries of beauty. Beautiful language and imagery on a terrible dehumanizing era in United States history

I just loved this book, 100 yr. Old Man etc.  I think I laughed at every page.  We don't get much to laugh at these days so this book was a godsend.  I recommended it to everyone & they all felt we need more books like this one.

 

I just listened to the audio book One Good Dog by Susan Wilson.  It's about a fighting pitbull who escapes & finds his way to a man whose whole life is coming apart.   I have the book Racing in the Rain by the same author which I haven't started yet.  Hoping it's as good as One Good Dog.

Just began the Queen's Lover by Francine Du Plessix Gray.  It is about Axel von Fersen,  Queen Marie Antoinette's paramour.   Wellwritten and entertaining if you enjoy historical fiction.

Really? I've been looking at that one but for some reason I haven't gotten it yet. Maybe I'll put it in my wish list...


Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

I've just finished listening to a series of audiobooks by David Rosenfelt, read by Grover Gardner.  It's about a dog-loving attorney, Andy Carpenter, and his associates; and it's filled with intrigue, wit, humor, and warmth.  Enjoyed them so much!  Wish Mr. Rosenfelt and Mr. Gardner would crank them out much faster.

I just picked up the following at the library:

The King's Witch by Cecelia Holland

Viper Wine by Hermione Eyre

 

Light and indulgent reading about periods in history which I already know quite a bit about.  It is soothing to read these  kinds of books  when there is a great deal of turmoil to deal with.
