Just finished 'The Handmaid's Tale'. uffffff!
This is a BIG work. Atwood takes you right through the grinding stones of the emotions.
Took a powerful person to write this, and a strong person to read it.

Right now I'm listening to 'Heft' by Liz Moore.
There are two readers, one taking the part of a 600 pound (or thereabouts) former English Lit. professor who has become a total recluse in his family home, and another taking the part of an eighteen-year-old high school athlete with his eye on on baseball major league. These two story lines have not yet merged, but they will, in some way, which is much of the suspense. Both narrate their lives in the first person -- astonishing and sad lives as outsiders.
This is not a fast-moving story, but an absorbing one.

I'm focused on reading my Kindle right now. As for books, I've just finished "Shanghai Girls" and "Catching Fire". I'm now reading "Mockingjay" and "The Round House".

For next month, my book group is reading "The Language of Flowers" and I have requested it from my library in audiobook format.

Right now I'm listening to "A Time to Kill" by John Grisham. I only listen when I work out, so light but very plot-driven books are ideal for my purpose.

I get that - it's easy to get distracted and try to do other things with audiobooks and then I discover that I have missed a bunch. I have just made it so that when doing distracting things, I listen to books that require less attention and focus. I save the books requiring thought and attention for walks when I can really focus on them.

Right now I'm listening to Prayers for Rain by Dennis Lehane. I do like this series, though sometimes it's a bit violent, and I don't like the overdone powerful villain in this one. Then the author writes a great sentence and I forgive all that, so I'm enjoying it.

I've lost interest for a bit in other forms of reading except books. I don't know why. My Kindle sits in a pile along with my mp3 player. I'm reading "The Shanghai Girls" for my book group and "The Recessional" for myself.

I think there's a difference in my attention based on whether I'm listening or reading. I think listening takes more effort because I'm such a visual person. So, "The World Without End" sits untouched in my mp3 player along with four other books.

Maybe someday . . .

I hope she's doing well - I just haven't been much into taking care of myself lately! I am working to get back to it when I can. Anyways, right now I'm listening to The Sun Over Breda by Arturo Perez-Reverte. I've listened to the other books in the series, but this one was about 80% scene-setting, 20% action. I still enjoyed it because it's a very interesting time and I learned a great deal about the Spanish army. I did miss that the main character was almost an afterthought at times, and the tendency of books in a series to spend way too much time referencing past events and talking about stuff that is irrelevent to the current story.

Looks like we've lost our leader. Too bad. I like Judith.

I've stopped listening to books for a bit. I'm in the middle of "World Without End" and go back to it every so often.

I'm using my Kindle now and am reading "The Hunger Games" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo".

Haven't been on here forever, but thought I would pop in. I have been working my way through the Walt Longmire mysteries by Craig Johnson. There are very entertaining, so I am going through them quickly!

I downloaded "The Zookeeper's Wife" from our library. It's my book club selection for March. Sounds real good; I will probably start it real soon.

Currently listening to Ross Poldark by Winston Graham. It's been pretty entertaining so far, an easy listen for a weekend spent painting!

In addition to listening to The Confession by John Grisham, when I need a break, I listen to one of the Cedar Cove books by Debbie Macomber. I've listened to the first four books and am now on "50 Harbor Street"

I haven't been posting lately since I haven't been tracking my food or exercising. Just winter laziness and way too busy and stressed at work. Went and ordered a new strength training book today so hopefully that will get me back into exercise. I'll try to get back to posting what I'm listening too. Right now things are so busy that I can't focus too much, so I'm tending towards books that don't take a lot of thought. I've also been letting my husband pick a bunch of them out, so it's been lots of sci fi. 10 books down so far this year already so it's zipping by.

Right now I'm listening to Into the Storm by Taylor Anderson. It's about a beat-up WW2 destroyer fighting in the Pacific that gets sucked into a storm that transports it to an alternate world. So I've been rolling my eyes at some of the descriptions, but it's got a lot of mindless action to keep the stressful days at bay!

I am picking up the audio version of "War and Peace" today from my local library. This is one of several novels I have always wanted to read, and I am SO ready to slip that first disc into my cd player and begin listening.

I just finished Scott Turow's "Presumed Innocent". It was a good listen. Read by Edward Hermann. I figured out what happened fairly early on but then I had a nagging feeling that I had read about the solution in a book review or perhaps a movie review.

I'm listening to John Grisham's "The Confession". When I'm finished I'm going to read his newest novel, "The Racketeer".

I am listening to "A Cold Day for Murder" by Dana Stabenow. It's an intriguing book but I think it might be too densely descriptive and plotted for my purpose--listening to books while I work out. I think I would listen to it if I were doing nothing but listening, but it's on my workout iPad.

I have really been neglecting this post! I may have mentioned that I was listening to my mp3 player full of books in order of descending length. Well I made it to the end where books were only 4-6 hours long and they just flew by! It was kind of fun. However, with the holidays I have been so busy, then got sick, so I haven't had time to reload my player from all the books I have picked out lately, so I am listening to the only thing left on there, Before They are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie. It is one of my husband's favorites but a bit too violent for me. I still find the characters mostly depressing, repulsive, or annoying, with a few noted exceptions. It is also book 2 of a trilogy so I know it will answer nothing, just set up more mysteries and conflicts for book 3.

Just finished The Chill by Ross MacDonald, an old hard-boiled deective mystery that has held up surprisingly well. It was quick and the mystery was well constructed. It is about a woman who disappears on her honeymoon and how that is linked to two crimes long in the past.

Now I am on Mission of Gravity by Hal Clement. It is a classic hard sci fi book about a mission to a planet with extreme gravity where the human must interact with a strange native species to retrieve a lost satellite. It is mostly about overcoming the technical hurdles on the way, with a dose of how species would live and be in such a strange environment. It is thought-provoking but pretty dry.

Finished the George Eliot 'The Mill On the Floss' (about twenty-four hours) with mixed feelings. Themes were bold and deep, but style seemed very light weight. Still, she exposed readers to material they might not have accepted if it hadn't had an innocuous sugar coating. Can't believe that I'd never gotten around to reading this book before!

Now am nearly through with 'Unless' by Carol Shields. Again, mixed feelings. Shields has written entertaining short stories and novels with a splendid mastery of words. This book is perhaps too subtle in its style -- and it does require very close attention. This has a ruminative, meticulous, first-person narration. I am loyal to this writer, and will wring every last bit from this book!


It's tough growing up at any age.
