I went to the library and got a few books, also putting some on hold from other libraries. First I read “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. I picked this up and couldn’t put it down until wee hours of the morning. Finally went to sleep and finished the book as soon as I woke up. It really was good. I guess you could call it a story about a dog, or more a story by a dog.
I then began to read “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer. I did not like this book very much. I guess I would have to have a lot of interest in Mountain climbing. So I decided not to read that, or K2.
I then went on to read one that a friend of mine had suggested. She knows I like mysteries and true crime, so her suggestion was “The Boston Strangler” by Gerald Frank. True, I do like true crime, but I have to say that this book I found to be very disturbing. This may be partly to the fact that I grew up in Boston, but more so the way the murders were described in detail and thirteen of them. It was grotesque to me. And yet, I read it.
I have just begun the “Agatha H.” series. Seems like good books to read to lighten the mood after the “Strangler”. I have two more on hold at the library and a few more to look for.
I have quite enough to keep me busy for now, but if you have any suggestions, I will take them!
