As for me haven't been doing that much reading lately. Found that I hardly read any more as well.  Have to say do have times like this and others don't. Guess it depends on the book itself as well.

 

Russian Tattoo:  A Memoir, Elena Gorokova

 

Exodus:  A Memoir, Deborah Feldman

 

When Books Went to War:  The Stories That Helped Us Win World War II, Molly Guptill Manning

 

Joan of Arc:  A Life Transfigured, Kathryn Harrison

 

The Body Keeps the Score:  Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma, Bessel van der Kolk, MD

 

Jesus: A Pilgrimage, James Martin, SJ

 

A Midwife’s Tale:  The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary, 1785-1812, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

 

Have tried to read this before, but with no luck.  Hopefully, this time with more luck.

You must have a lot of time on your hands... I been working on a magazine for a month now. Can't seem to finish it... too much info.

With all these books you are reading... may I encourage you to spend a few minutes each day reading the Bible? I never read that you even mentioned that book. You must be very smart; but please don't think I am judging you in any way; just offering you some encouragement.

 

My mother in law read many thousands of books... there were books lining each wall of her house. But I never met her... she died six months before I met my wife. Her books were a testimony to who she was. Sadly all the books were fiction, and romance. I wonder... did she know God? Did she know Jesus before she died?

 

My wife died two months ago. What does her belongings and activities tell about her? She loved to sing and write music... and most of it was in worship of Jesus. Three days before she died; she told me she could not wait to see her late mother and the Lord. She believes her mother to be a Christian... but I remain puzzled... you shall know a tree by it's fruit. What fruit did her mother leave behind? I hope she finds her mother in the beyond. But I have my doubts.

Thanx, but no thanx because I found its hard enough to just to look at it.  Don't get me wrong I do own a bible myself, but really never look at it.

Start with Psalms. It is a good meditative book. People can really identify their feelings with Psalms.

Does Kindle count, or are we just listing print books?

Mostly e-books and school textbooks right now. E-books include the Anne of Green Gables series, an anthology of old detective stories, and G.K. Chesterton's epic poem  inspired by King Alfred "The Ballad of White Horse."

I've been going through loads of old detective stories for the past five months or so. Off and on of course. Actually what got me started on the whole thing was reading through Chesterton's Father Brown stories. Do you have any favorite writers of detective fiction, or mystery fiction in general?

I don't know if I have a "favorite," per se. I do have a longstanding soft spot for the original Sherlock Holmes, and more recently I've become intrigued by Dorothy L. Sayers' gentleman sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey (he seems so flighty and silly sometimes, but he really does care), and Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael, which comes into a certain nexus of mystery fiction and period fiction which I find really enjoyable. :)

I have read some Father Brown, also. He seems like he would be an interesting sort of person to meet!

"Secret prescription," huh? Is there any health advice you think is useful in there, or is it the published equivalent of "click here for this woman's secret! Doctors hate her!"? ;)

Hmm interesting thought that you have here.  In which I have no clue whatsoever to answer it at the moment.
