2020 Spring/Summer Book Club

Since most of us are staying inside more and sheltering in place, I would hope times for reading have gone up a bit.

This year, I've read:
A Warning - Anonymous

The Institute - Stephen King

The Screwtape Letters - C. S. Lewis

Lisey's Story - Stephen King

Insomnia - Stephen King

Right now:

Pachinko - Min Jin Lee

According to my goal on Goodreads, I'm 1 book behind. But damn it, Insomnia is 800 pages! That's like 2 books! haha

So what whatcha reading? Anything on your short list?

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

Pachinko is an amazing story and so well written. Once of my favs from last year. I loved The Institute, one of SK's best. I also loved American Dirt, scary, but could not put it down.

Right now I'm reading The Secrets Between Us by Thrity Umrigar (fabulous writer) and I will soon be reading If It Bleeds by SK and The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel.

That may be my next one after Pachinko or at least at some point this summer.

Noooo, you're not the only ones. It's just that there's not much point in telling you guys how much I enjoyed a certain book if it's not available in English. Right now my to read list includes Baudolino by Umberto Eco, A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson, classics like Homer and Plato and I don't know where to start!

Hey, nice to see there are more avid readers. Keep reading in any language. I just read that Colson Whitehead won the Pulitzer prize for the second time for The Nickel Boys. Can't wait to read this one, but I'm waiting for the paperback in July.

I needed some non-fiction along side Pachinko, so I started George Carlin's Last Words.

I'm now reading Me: Elton John. I'm only about 70 pages in, but it seems like it will be a very interesting read.
