    • I don’t have a list, just wend my way thru what catches my fancy at the moment when I’ve just finished a book. I look thru GoodReads, LA Times, Amazon, if an author catches my eye I continue with them, etc. Do you have a list?

          • I’m a very poor listener, it’s my least capable learning mode. Even when I’m listening to music I’ve chosen, my mind wanders all over the place. I did well in college classes only because of taking extensive notes and doodling in the margins of notebooks. I still struggle to listen to anyone speak for more than a few minutes unless I’m doing something with my hands. So, a long note to tell you how much I can’t do audio books. Yet I love love love music, theater, attending lectures and speeches, and my hearing is acute.

            Recently read: Moonglow by Michael Chabon; The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen; The Last Jew by Noah Gordon; A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison; Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian; The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston; Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly; Dark Wine at Sunrise by Jenna Barwin; The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes; The Liar’s Gospel by Naomi Alderman; The Last Painting of Sarah de Vos by Dominic Smith (among others this year) – and would highly recommend each. Currently reading The Human Stain by Philip Roth as I wanted to re-read one of his books in honor of a great writer. All books held in my hand.

  1. So lovely to hear that you are also reading this summer. I read the first two books on your list some years ago. I’m looking forward to reading your reviews and your take on this powerful autobiographies. Happy Reading!
