Have you read any of these on my list?
You may be slow, but I’m recently finding that it’s very hard for me to concentrate. Hope this is a temporary condition, because I normally love nothing more than losing myself in a book.
I agree. Currently reading “Rodham” and it’s going pretty fast. “what if” I’ve always wondered about.
Haven’t read any of these, but have read a number of different books by some of these authors. Let me know if you come across any “can’t miss” titles.
Haven’t read any of them. . . . But have read other books by a number of these authors. Let me know if you come across any that shouldn’t be missed.
I will. It will take me a while – sliw reading these days.
