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.

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.

I am waiting to read Fannie Flagg's new one after I re read all her other ones, right now I am in the middle of Standing in the Rainbow. She is one of my very favorite authors.

That is funny about the Karen White book, Janet, I just got back from the library and I got the new House on Tradd Series book by her. I kind of thought that the fourth book would be the last in that series, but I am so happy to have found the fifth one.

I have been downsizing some of my books. I hate to do it,  but there is just no more room. I have thousands of books stacked everywhere I can think to stack them and some have to go. Luckily my library has a whole room to sell donated books so hopefully they will go to good homes.

I just finished reading "Flight Patterns" by Karen White & highly recommend it.  She is one of my favorite authors and this one did not disappoint.

Finished Everything I Never Told You (Celeste Ng) and I highly recommend it!  Now trying Test of Faith by Christa Allan.
