― Lemony Snicket,
Reading the above quote gave me a chuckle! I inherited this trait from my mother...don't leave the house with out a book, you never know when you will have five minutes to read! And I have passed it on to my children and to my grandchildren, especially my granddaughter who has followed this habit since she could read!
For my Villas Bookclub this month we read "Hillbilly Elegy". Here is a very brief description from Goodreads. " In Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck. The Vance family story began with hope in postwar America." The reading of this book brought about a very good discussion at our meeting! I do recommend reading it; it is not extremely well written, but it is very eye-opening about a specific life style that prevails our country...and not just in the area that Vance describes. And I have heard it is to be made into a movie...I don't quite see the appeal for that but who knows.
And my last book that I finished recently is "Good Harbor" by Anita Diamant. If you are a fan of Diamant, you will enjoy this book too. I have read several of hers, "The Red Tent", "The Last Days of Dogtown", and "Day After Night" and have loved them all! In fact, I read "Day After Night" a few years ago, and liked it so well I have chosen it for my turn to review for both the Villas and UU book clubs.
