Thanks to Debbi at DubiQuilts I was able to add a list of books I've recently enjoyed to my sidebar. Thanks so much, Debbi.
I used to read constantly, but lately I have a hard time finding something that holds my interest. So these recent titles have been an exciting find. Boomsday is light reading, very funny, and The Yiddish Policeman's Union is basically a police procedural although it's set in a kind of alternate reality. It's an entertainment with literary merit, something hard to find. The two non-fiction books, Team of Rivals and The Omnivore's Dilemma, are fascinating, as engrossing as the best fiction. The Ministry of Special Cases is an amazing book, a combination of comedy and heartbreak, unlike anything else I've read. Approach it with care; it's not light and fun.
