I am reading THE BOOK OF JOY for my book group. I go back and forth between loathing it and loving it. Way too many cliches but there is such good intention on the part of the two men who converse (the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu) that I have to give it leeway.
I am also reading THE CUCKOO's CALLING by J.K. Rowlings which seems pretty good. Also looking at information on the prairie. I got fooled however. I saw a book which described itself as pictures of the prairie. What it did not state was that it was a children's book. Or perhaps it did but I overlooked it. Also the pictures are pretty dull and way too modern. There's a sucker born...
Next up Alison Gaylin's new book
Phil is reading WHEN THE SACRED GIN MILL CLOSES. Just finished WONDER VALLEY by Ivy Pochoda.
