Listening to The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
Reading In the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides - long book and sometimes it is hard to grab this one instead of something else :) and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I need to start Behind the Scenes at the Museum as well.

I just finished "American Sniper" I give ***** I've been told that the book is better than the movie which is good also, but must lack something. I haven't seen it to say.

Finally I got the book"Still Alice" by Lisa Genova and will be working on that and "God Help the Child" by Tony Morrison.

I just finished "BODY SNATCHERS AFFAIR" BY Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini tonight*****

I'm working on "9 TALES OF HENGHIS HAPTHORN" by Matthew Hughes ***

Also yesterday finished,"KINDLE FIRE HD MANUAL'' BY Jake Jacobs that has lots of uses for the Kindle including hooking it up to your tv and showing pictures that way. EASY to understand I give it a good ****

I was hoping that it would teach to replace the battery and such...taught other things that I haven't done. I had to go to U-TUBE to learn how to change the battery and speakers.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION IS "BIBLE IN ONE YEAR'' It's a Kindle Catholic Version.

Trying to make a balance of subjects in my reading.

Cathy, I liked The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. I still get tears when I think of the brother. Very unusual story, but hen, I'm a bit unusual.

I really loved Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. How exciting it'll be to have tea there! I wonder if they do a Japanese tea. Let me know how it was afterwards, okay?

I'm just starting New Uses for Old Boyfriend by Beth Kendrick.
I just finished The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery. If you like women's fiction, this is a must read. It was fantastic. I also just finished Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter which is a Christian fiction novel I got free on my Kindle and it was quite enjoyable.
20 books down towards my goal of somewhere between 80-100 : )

I also jungle several books at the same time. I just started the biography on Joseph Goebbels. I am also reading My Weird School series with my client. I also am reading Cromwell to Cromwell, and the 12 Caesars. I just finished the biography on Robespierre and My life among the Serial Killers.

I got Sense and Sensibility from Oyster Books Book Service. I absolutely love this service. All the books you can download for only 9.95 a month. They have many books in different genres.

As always, I have multiple books going at once. On my Kindle Cloud Reader I have been reading a funny science fiction novel in e-galley form, 'Repeat' by Neal Pollack. It comes out later this month and I highly recommend it. It's hilarious, strange, poignant, and fast-moving.

In print I'm making my way through 'Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?" by Roz Chast, which is an autobiographical graphic novel about reluctant caregiving for elderly parents. Also very funny and poignant, and for me anyway, I have to read it in small doses because it's too close to home sometimes.

And I managed to finally borrow 'Miss Peregrine's Home' from my mom, so I'll be reading the February book in March. But I'll probably pick up 'Sense & Sensibility' in eBook form at some point so I can catch up with y'all.
