Book o the day: Sparse writing, Natalie says, like haiku. Beautiful writing, post-apocalyptic scene, odd buddy story. xo$ #thedogstars #afterthepandemic #greatbooks

Good story-great characters

The Dovekeepers: A Novel. Great story. So well written that the words flow, weave and work their magic the way only a gifted storyteller can do. I savored it.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I would love to live above a bookstore!

Lovely cover for a great book. xo$

It's a short book but took me quite some time to read. Much is said with few words - to the point that I found myself re-reading parts several times. It has opened a gate of personal memory exploration that greatly exceeds the expectations of a simple story.

Someone by Alice McDermott. "The story of a Brooklyn-born woman's life - her family, her neighborhood, her daily trials and triumphs - from childhood to old age." -The Publisher

16 Books To Read Before They Hit Theaters This Year. Mazerunner looks so good. I saw the preview yesterday.

Reading now...really good

This book is so intimate and well written - I loved every word! The similarities brought back vivid memories of my own mother, our life as a family, as mother/daugher, her relationships with others, her last year(s) living with cancer and our shared love of the written word. I will never tire of reading or hearing others stories - it reminds me of how intertwined we all are, woven from the same breath and loved by the same Creator.

"Unless: A Novel by Carol Shields - I wept on a plane reading this. I want to read it again but now that I am a mother I may not make it through. Beautiful book."
