    Any Stephen King fan should look up a new writer named Jonathan Face. He has a book on the "free" Kindle list, called "Catharsis". When you are reading you will swear that this is King using another pseudonym, but after checking it out ~ there really IS a young man who has captured the essence of King's writings, and will be making a name for himself! I read it and it's great! (if you like King).

    You're kidding .... as I always have at least 6 books in various stages of being
    read. But here goes:
    In the Garden of the Beast (Eric Larson) Americans in pre-WWII Germany
    Running to the Mountain (Jon Katz) One man's spiritual retreat
    This Land is Their Land (Barbara Ehrenreich) Reports from a Divided Nation
    The Slaves' War (Andrew Ward) Civil war in words of former slaves
    The Fifties (A Woman's Oral History) (Brett Harvey) Our life before the feminist movement
    On the Edge of Darkness (Kathy Cronkite) Conversations about conquering depression
    My daily reading depends on my "mood"

    just finished Wait Till Next Year, a memoir by Doris Kearns Goodwin about growing up in the 50s loving the Brooklyn Dodgers. It was charming.

    I feel like such a slacker ... although in my own defense I have to do a lot of serious technical reading for my job - which is in a very male dominated environment. So, I'm reading Stephanie Laurens ... Viscount Breckinrigdge to the Rescue. Trashy and light.

    I'm also reading the Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Boy - my boys (age 10 and 9) and I are in a Boy / Mom bookclub.

    I am reading Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion and Purpose by Tony Hsieh. It's the story of zappos.com, the online shoe website, and there's also more about his early years and experiences with entrepreneurship.

    Before that, I read Delectable Mountains, one of Earlene Fowler's mysteries.
