    A Sport and a Pastime. I've never seen the word "balls" in literature before. I like James Salter but there's really no literary way to say balls.

    I'm reading the Silo series, nearing the end of Wool. It's a relatively easy read and I want to know more about what's going on

    Just finished A Street Cat Named Bob and it was a wonderful true story about a man and his cat and how they saved each other. Just a beautiful story.

    I've started re-reading the Harry Potter series since Book 8 is coming out this summer.

    Tea planters wife. A young girl married a colonial tea planter in Ceylon. I hated every character in that book. Argh so bad.

    Behind closed doors. A psychological thriller, Not super believable but it still sucked me in while reading and I finished it in one afternoon

    I've been reading children's books, specifically the Newbery Award winners that I missed. I just finished The Midwife's Apprentice and will read The Bridge to Terabithia next. In between, I'm reading Son of the Black Stallion by Walter Farley. I read most of Farley's books as a kid during my "I want a horse" phase (I tried to persuade my parents that we could keep a horse in the basement) and it's fun to reread this book again.

    Rue McClanahan's autobiography. I found the copy I got when I heard her speak and got my book signed during her book tour, years and years ago. (I love The Golden Girls). It's funny! I forgot that she was so funny and fun.

    Argggghhh! I just downloaded Wolf Hall because I loved the TV series and the book is supposed to be excellent. But I'm only two lines in and I have to stop. It's written in the present tense! It's practically unreadable to me. I HATE reading in the present tense and put down Angela's Ashes after one page for that very reason. Why would you write an entire book saying "he is running upstairs and sees her." No he RAN upstairs and SAW her.

    I just wasted 12.99.

    Currently re-reading a stack of Anita Brookner (RIP), she does dignified loneliness like no one else.

    ^I've been wanting to read her---do you recommend a good book to start with?

    I'm reading The Essays of Leonard Michaels right now, as a break from The Journals of Joyce Carol Oates. Loving the Michaels one, and I'm enjoying Oates.

    I randomly picked up "The Cuckoo's Calling" by Robert Galbraith from the library and it's pretty good. I found out afterwards that Robert Galbraith is an alias for J.K. Rowling. I like it, it's held my interest thus far and I'm almost done with the book.

    I read that trilogy a year or 2 ago and it was only ok. The Red Rising trilogy is in the same genre and much better IMO


    I'm currently reading the Lord of the Rings books. I'm at the end of the first book and to be honest, it's been a slow read. I feel like an asshole for not gushing over it
