Currently reading

Current audiobook

Force of Nature by C.J. Box

Checked out of the library

Fiction

Evil and the Mask by Fuminori Nakamura

I read The Gun a few years ago and fell under its spell. But I never looked for more by this author…until now. I started this but put it down for another book. I want to finish it.

Miss Lonelyhearts and The Day of the Locust by Nathanael West

Something led me to West and these novels but I can’t remember the source. No matter, I want to read more classics.

Force of Nature by C.J. Box

I’ve been listening to the Joe Pickett series on audiobook but this one wasn’t available so I went for the physical copy. I’ll hear the narrator’s voice in my head as I read it.

Shoot the Moonlight Out by William Boyle

I kept seeing this on lists.

Non-fiction

The Art of NASA: The illustrations that sold the mission

Oversize coffee-table book with spectacular art. Perfect gift book for any NASA fan in your life!

Bibliophile: Diverse Spines by Jamise Harper and Jane Mount

A book for any book lover. And I was so pleased to see Good Talk on the cover!!! I reviewed that graphic novel memoir over a year ago and I still think about it and recommend it. https://bookthrasher.com/2020/10/14/can-we-talk/

Mindful thoughts at home: Finding heart in the home by Kate Peers

A tiny, thoughtful book to flip through for inspiration. She tries to answer the question, what makes a house a home?

Einstein’s God: Conversations About Science & the Human Spirit by Krista Tippett

The back of the book says this is drawn from Tippett’s public radio program. The title grabbed me.

Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy by Sadhguru

Great title. More joy!

Sparks of Genius: The 13 Thinking Tools of the World’s Most Creative People by Robert and Michèle Root-Bernstein

I mean the title is a little over the top but I love to read stuff like this.
