Okay Jane. This is freaky! I was pondering the idea today of posting a page on my blog about books I have read and asking for suggestions. I just read your blog about books to ponder. Maybe we were twins in a former life?? Anyway, Mark and I have been reading Jon Katz’s books about life with his dogs. I also recently read, “Wishful Drinking” by Carrie Fisher (aka: Princess Leia). She makes me laugh out loud! I am currently reading Boom! by Tom Brokaw. I usually don’t read history books, but this one is good!
I just started re-reading Bird by Bird, too… this will be my third time, I think. Some of us are slow learners. I’ve never read the rest of the Griffin & Sabine trilogy. Maybe I should put the other two books on my list…
I have all three. Wish I could loan them to you, oh cyberspace friend.
