    I read Melmoth, too. It was very compelling at the time, but I discovered when I saw it mentioned here that I couldn’t remember anything about it! I had to look up a review to remember the plot. I had chosen it because I had read an earlier book by Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent. (I picked that one because it had a fabulous cover.)

    Right now, I’m rereading The Name of the Wind in hopes that Patrick Rothfuss is finally getting close to finishing the third book in his trilogy.

    I love the covers of her books. Melmoth (hardcover) is beautiful.

    Which book of hers did you like more? I keep trying to decide if I should read The Essex Serpent or not.

    Yum! Who doesn't like bread?!

    Which reminds me, I have some bread I should go start mixing so it has time to rise....

    Nothing, I don't read books!
    (kind of joking. I listen to audio books sometimes, the most recent of which was The Inspector Calls, though it was kind of a play)

    Bread: My bread did not turn out right. :/ I added too much salt which I read interferes with bread rising. I did not know this.

    Books: I am reading Any Human Heart and wow. What an amazing book!

    I am also about half-way through Winter by Ali Smith. I read Autumn in 2017. I am wanting to read Spring to catch up a bit.

    Since my last post above, I have read:

    As the Women Lay Dreaming by Donald S Murray
    The Victory Garden by Rhys Bowen
    The Heart of the Garden by Victoria Connelly
    Tall Chimneys by Allie Cresswell (definitely recommend this one)

    The Stand (extended version) by Stephen King. One of the many books I have read loads of times. Some books I read once and never return to but then one will come by and I find myself wanting to return. The Pern series by Anne McCaffrey is a place I return to many times. I hope I'm not the only one who does this

    Not a chance!😊 “Up A Road Slowly” by Irene Hunt...a once out of print Newbery Medal winner. I discovered it as a child (it belonged to one of my sisters) and yes, it’s one of many books I have reread over the years.

    I love books that make me think or laugh or simply take me away to a different time or place.

    Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl

    The Curious incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is a great book especially if you know anyone who is on the autism spectrum. It won many awards and will make you laugh til you cry if any of it rings true to you.

    To laugh out loud...any of the Ann B. Ross books (the entire series on Miss Julia is fantastic) but make sure you read the series in order. Focuses on a southern lady who is so proper that you will find yourself laughing out loud. My husband thinks I have lost my mind on it.

    Also love virtually everything by Wally Lamb, Summer Sisters by Judy Blume and a number of Anita Shreve books especially The Weight of Water.

    Fly a Little Higher by Laura Sobiech. A mo5ers retelling of life when her son is diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Warning: do not read this book without Kleenex handy. It is fantastic but is an emotional roller coaster but so inspirational and worthy of reading.
