I absolutely love reading Ferrol Sams. Don't know how I missed his 2007 Down Town. Almost halfway finished and am enjoying his writing style, his phrases, his characters and setting. Can recognize the South I caught perhaps the "tail end of" by being born in the 1950s.

My son tried and tried to read him, but just can't get into his books. So obviously not for all.

Busy Reading, But Not Posting

Have been busy with lots of books but I have not been posting of late.

Here is a list of recent reads.....

Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughan Young Adult Fiction

Baby I'm Yours by Stephanie Bond A short prequel to a series

The Sweetest Gift by Jillian Hart (A love inspired romance I purchased for my mother)

I have also been spending some time doing genealogy. Took some books back to my former library today and was talking with the new librarian. Mentioned the genealogy and she asked, "What's with it with people who retire and take up genealogy? My mother did the same thing."

Guess we have the time and we are closer to the other end of the family tree than before and want to get it all down while we still can!
