Oh yeah they were thrown off a bridge as well so that was special.

    She is the author of the controversial new book American Dirt.
    I see that's one of the eleventy-jillion titles in my Kindle. I don't remember ordering it, but I must have got a deal, 'cuz I'd never spend $14 on a non-reference book.

    I am reading Secondhand which is really interesting. All about how our used "stuff" moves around the world. I had no idea it was a billion dollar business and that different cultures have different ideas about used clothing and merchandise.

    Catherine: Have you read "This is How it Always Is" by Laurie Frankel? Gardnr recommended it not too long ago and I thought it was fantastic.

    Just finished J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy. I have since watched several interviews with J.D. on YouTube and am very impressed by him - where he is come from and what he has become.

    Just started reading Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson - also another one of those books that has been out a while, but new to me! A modern day "To Kill a Mockingbird" not only because of the story itself, but that it happened in Harper Lee's home town of Monroeville Alabama. Hard to put down - the best kind of book!

    I'll look into it! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Kindle "recommended" David McCullough's The Pioneers. It's not fiction but I do love a good history storyteller and McCullough is definitely that. I may look into that one as well.
