    I am about halfway through "A Thousand Acres"

    by Jane Smiley. Bought it on a whim at a Goodwill. It is not a fast-paced book. More of a novel focusing on the nuances of the human character. It brought up a lot of painful feelings. I feel like I should finish it, though.

    The Sepulcher by James Herbert I read this book

    about 20 years ago and it was one of those surprise books that a friend recommended to me. It starts out reading like a spy novel which I don't normally read and ended up in the paranormal-horror genre, which I really do enjoy reading. I'm only in the second chapter but already...

    Fifty Shades of Grey.

    Game Of Thrones

    A very different approach to story telling, chapters are told from  the viewpoint of many different characters.  Making it a little difficult to work out what is happening to start with.  There is also a tendency to skip to the next chapter by the same character and then go...

    John Le Carre: this past summer,
