August Books

28. The Unbearable Lightness of Scones by Alexander McCall Smith – it was alright. A story following a score of people, with no real plot, just a story of life. Amusing at times, not LOL funny, but just…alright.

29. Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell – a collection of essays about race issues. Some were interesting (including the title essay), some were more dry and repetitive. It was interesting but by the end I was ready for it to end.

30. Trap Line by Carl Hiaasen – not like his other books, this one isn’t a light hearted amusing Florida tale, but a serious Florida tale focusing on drug trafficking. Not bad, but not what I was expecting based on the previous ones that I read.

31. The Book of Polly by Kathy Hepinstall – an amusing tale of a young girl with and old mom, and secrets. Compared to Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, it wasn’t laugh out loud funny like Daisy (nothing is!) but it was a cute story with some chuckles. Quick read.

In progress…The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Anne Shaffer and Annie Barrows. and An Oral History of the Daily Show
