    Default Summer reading 2018

    Just finished Stephen Kings The Outsider.



    Way too "woo woo" for me even considering it's a Stephen King book. Had to force myself to finish it.

    So, what are y'all reading this summer?

    Smack dab in the middle of "The Women", which is about the wives of Frank Lloyd Wright. I've always thought that FLW was a genius architect, but oh!, those women he married!!!

    Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. Can't go wrong with her books. Very well researched, topics for everyone, and extremely well written. Love the different perspectives of all the characters, her niche.

    The Disappeared by C J Box. I just recently heard of him and the series he's written about a game warden named Joe Pickett. I didn't know if I'd be interested but after a few pages of book one, I was hooked. So far there are eighteen books in the series. I'm now on number eighteen and wish there were many more.

    Pursuant to my daughter's recommendation, I've started to read Stephen King's "Doctor Smoke".

    This is a sequel to King's, "The Shining". Although it's been 35 years or more since I read The Shining, I remember enough to follow the new book pretty well.

    Harry Potter series. I refused it when the boys were younger and I never watched the movies either. This year, they harped on me until I agreed to read the first one out of a sense of nostalgia stemming from Dalton’s graduation. I’m now in the middle of Deathly Hallows and have thoroughly enjoyed the ride.

    Yes, Ozarks history. Here's one you can read for free on online, just by going to my website link and reading the pdf. Busch Arkansas 72620 by yours truly. My website is mostly empty right now except for some pdfs, so don't try to go to the website. I'm running out of hard copies of the book, and I just want to share it with you all!
