I'm reading 'The Lowland" by Jhumpa Lahiri. I picked it because I enjoyed "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini a lot. These are both so unlike the usual thrillers I pick, but sometimes different is good.
When I get back to the usual, I'm looking forward to the new Mickey Haller book by Connelly, and also the new Grisham. (Didn't care for The Racketeer.)
As Eric says, so many books...so little time!
"The Silent Wife" by S. A. Harrison, similar to "Gone Girl."
FYI, there is another reading thread here at RV.net--Whatcha Readin Now?
I might check it out. I didn't like Gone Girl but I did read These Things Hidden which I thought was good. Those three books have been grouped together as suggestions:
These Things Hidden
Thanks for the FYI.....I wonder why it didn't continue? I love hearing about books that people are reading.
Far as I know, the thread isn't really "closed," just hasn't been posted on in several months. Whatcha Readin' Now
Always neat having a list of liked books! (and I hope the link works--haven't posted one in ages!)
The Lancaster DA stated that there is absolutely no truth in this show; it is all stage for TV. If these people did exist, the DA said he would have them all locked up. End of story.
We enjoy....Moonshiners....as well. Another :o :B
And I agree with you...that group (the moonshine guys...) would all be locked up if their escapades were anything close to "real." Still fun, though! LOL
Congratulations from me, as well! One of my very favorite things is to be able to help out our grandkids, whether they need it or not.
Looking forward to "school shopping" today for my 16-year old grandson who lives in FL. (We are in Texas....) I'm flattered that he thinks I might actually be able to choose something he likes. ;)
In a few weeks, we will be fortunate enough to help out our grand-niece with her first car.
And...dreading the day when they might think they are too old for all that.
So nice to see this happy thread this morning!
Funny, I never thought about tipping at a drive in window or for To Go foods....until I read this thread.
Like Stripit said, leaving a tip doesn't change my lifestyle one bit and often means a good deal to the worker. On one of the earlier pages, I read that even a To Go order requires someone to get it together and bring it to you.
Never thought of that before, but I do now. ;)
