So Limon wanted to know about the fun books I've been reading. Here are the ones I've read in the last month or so. I really should keep better track of what I'm reading when. 1. The Worst Hard Times by Timothy Egan. Ok, this a non-fiction book but it was really a great read. It is the most compelling and fascinating book on the Great Dust Bowl. Egan's description of the dust storms at times left me gasping and imagining my own lungs filling with dust. Really. Read this book!
2. A Widow for a Year by John Irving. I'm conflicted about this one. There were times while reading when I didn't want to put the book down. Then there were parts in the book where I just wanted to skip ahead.
3. Odd Hours by Dean Koontz. Not the best Dean Koontz book I've ever read, but it was good. I really like the Odd Thomas character and I'm pleased to see Koontz turning him into a series.
4. A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon. Great fun read. Every thing has to be read with a British accent running in your head. I can already see this turned in to a BBC movie. There were parts that made me laugh out loud.
I have four others I just picked up from the bargain bin at the book store, but I can't remember the titles. I'm not starting any of them until after I take my motorcycle test (hopefully Friday).
