Turning Pages from Here to There

We've only just returned from a road trip to visit family. I have been so very far behind in my reading that I gladly grabbed the seat time to catch up. I finished Good Hope Road (which, incidentally, I had begun in February!), this was a sweet story of a young woman and an odd assortment of townspeople that chronicled the aftermath of a natural disaster and concluded on a hopeful note. I completed a second book on this trip too, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry. These were both wonderful reads; I just love Backman. I had read his Bear Town the summer before last and have another of his, Britt-Marie Was Here, on reserve at the local library when it comes in. My Grandmother... was such an imaginative tale, it completely swept me up and carried me along for the ride, it's one I won't soon forget. With any luck, I hope to return to *D.E.A.R. time in the afternoons this summer. My biggest problem is that there's too much to do and not enough time to get it all done... anyone else? 😉 What's on your reading list?

I am reading a book called "Betty", about the life of one of our guild members! I loved the book! Glad you are enjoying your reading time.
