I was surprised by that, too, Janet!

I loved the first Mary Russell\Sherlock book, Kathy, I forget to look for the next one. 

I think that is my favorite of Fannie Flagg's books so far. I went to the library after work yesterday, and they had The Whole Town's Talking, so now I am in the first few pages of it. I love starting a new book, like the start of a new adventure.

My friend Michelle loved the Ann Perry books, but so far I have never read any of them.

I too, loved the book "All Girl's Filling Station"...I am once again working on my Laurie King books..about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his wife..excellent writer...the new book is called "the Bones of Paris"..I can't get over how fast these writers just whip out these books plus complicated story lines!..amazing!..I am never disappointed in Miss Kings books..jammed packed with adventure...plus a fat and meaty book...I just love that period of time, when these books were written about...Ann Perry's books are the same....

I loved the All Girl's Filling Station. One of my all time favorite books. I didn't know that Jewel had written a memoir. I was very surprised when she & her husband got divorced.

Comment by Amanda Best on Thursday

I seem to remember looking at it, and it seemed like it was going to be really sad, so I passed it by.

I just finished The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time, it was really good, sad, but very readable.

I also finished The All Girls Filling Station, so I am going to pick up The Whole Town is Talking next time I can get to the library.

Also I finished Never Broken, which is the singer Jewel's memoir, it was very good.

It is a good book.  It a memoir of the author and he had a hard life.  I am pass half way of the book.  Of course,  I only listen to it when I and driving and none of my driving is more a a few minutes and that is why it is taking me a long time to finish it.  It is a big book with 12 CDs.  I think I read somewhere that it on the "100 books you have to read before you die".  Two of my friends recommended it so I am reading it.

I have heard of that book, Vilma, but haven't read it, what do you think so far?

Comment by Vilma/AR on March 12, 2017 at 1:26am

I am listening to Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt in the car.  It has 9 CDs and it is taking me a long time to finish it.  It is due tomorrow, so I need to renew it.

The latest Karen White book was great, I couldn't put it down, I hope she continues the series for many more House on Tradd Street books.

I am almost done with Can't Wait to Get to Heaven, by Fannie Flagg, and then I think all I have left to reread is The All Girls Filling Station, before I can read her new one, which I am really looking forward to.

I also reread The Quilt That Walked to Golden, by Sandra Dallas, it is a great one.

I loved Test of Faith.  I'm reading Dream When You're Feeling Blue by Elizabeth Berg.  Very good so far; about three sisters during WWII.
