Here are my answers for 1/23/19


Currently, I am listening to Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes as part of my 2019 audio book challenge.

I am also slowly and thoughtfully still reading The Newcomers by Helen Thorpe, part of my goal to read more non-fiction.

Evidence of Flossing, a collection of poems and a photo essay by Jennifer A. Payne is another current read, which I’m more glad each time I encounter a new section that I purchased this slim, delightful, thought-provoking reading experience.


Today/Currently, I have just finished The Obelisk Gate as book “O” of my Alphabet Challenge, which I picked up halfway through the alphabet on New Year’s Day. Gate is by N.K. Jemisin and is the second book in the “Broken Earth trilogy.  It is a sci -fi masterpiece.

Last night, as part of my goal to read more non-fiction, I finished Magic Words @ Work, by Kaminsky and Penney. This book offers “magic” words and phrases that get desired results in the workplace.

This past Sunday, I finished Nutshell by Ian McEwan, a novel with a unique p.o.v, that of a fetus within the womb, the narrator, Hamlet–yes, Shakespeare’s  manic prince.

I also finished the “P” selection for the Alphabet Challenge, “The Prayer of Jesus, ” a devotional book by Hank Hanegraaff, introduced by Lee Strobel (of The Case for Christ) and recommended by my personal, favorite inspirational author,Max  Lucado.


I hope to read soon The Odessa Chronicles by Colin Chappell, whose blog meandray.com is one of my favorites.


Some reasons I was able to do so much reading recently was because I took two days to do nothing but rest and read, and the MLK holiday was observed on Monday of this week. Tuesday and today brought inclement weather, which kept me at home curled up with many good books. I hope the world was equally good to you this week. HAPPY READING!
