I read all kinds of books - old and new. Right now I'm reading Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage, since I was in the mood for a western. I find it quite interesting.

Tunes of the Twenties and All That Jazz by Robert Rawlins. This fun book tell the stories behind 250 classic songs of the Jazz Age, including some by Irving Berlin, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, and many others. The stories are intriguing and sometimes unbelievable. You can read one or two at a time, or maybe you won't want to put it down.Highly recommended for people who like GOOD music!

I am so sorry you are in a low place. When I was in a really low place, I read alot of lay science and easy history like Bill Bryson, Simon Winchester or David McCullough. I am trying to think of soothing escape fiction. Maybe No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency or Carrying Albert Home. Or The Rosie Project.

I'm still reading, but this forum is so difficult to post on or reply to, and I'm pretty tech-savvy. I had a hard enough time trying to respond to you.

Twice I logged in and then couldn't reply, I see what you mean about being difficult to post on. I started TWO KINDS OF TRUTH, the latest Harry Bosch book by Michael Connelly, just last night. That's my latest.

I've read both of Michael Connelly's new books recently and loved them both. I just finished reading The Social Affair by Britney King--an intriguing novel about the use of social media.

I'm loving Celeste Ng's novel Little Fires Everywhere. It's been a long time since I've read all day long, unable to put down a book. And what a gifted writer Ng is! 

Wow.

I just listened to Jacob T. Marley on Audible, and, folks, this is a new Christmas classic!  It is the backstory to "A Christmas Carol" and is an amazing little gem of a book.  There is just so much more to the story than we were led to believe.  It's a great read, but an even better listen with narrator Simon Vance.  Don't miss it!

If you love science as I do, you will love Sam Keane's The Disappearing Spoon.  It is about the development of the periodic table, which does not sound interesting, but when you hear the human stories behind the elements, it is!  I also recently read Radium Girls, a heartbreaking true story of science gone wrong.  I told their story to my students many times when I was still teaching.  Greed leads some people to do terrible things to their employees and this is a classic example.

The Memory Watcher was very good although the ending could have been better.  Now reading Uncle Tungsten because I am a science gal.  Love Oliver Sacks!

I’m reading The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. Clever novel about a man who decides to escape the Old Folk’s Home on the day of his 100th birthday celebration! He makes some unusual friends & enemies during his journey! As his adventure continues we learn about his interesting life and how it transcends the 20th century! I’m enjoying it immensely and would recommend this book!
