What I’ve been reading

I write these posts about the books I read and I never know what books you like. Do share! Are you a buyer, loaner, recipient, library, kind of person?

Me? library all the way.

omenGood Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimon.

I wasn’t looking forward to this reading this book for book club. I thought it was going to be Monty Python stupid funny. But it was truly hilarious and sacrilegious.

Amazon Prime is releasing the TV show based on this book in 2019. I’ll be watching.

Wow. I see why this is a classic. This is the first time for me reading this and I just loved it. The story is timeless! Betty Smith was very insightful on her observations of life.

If you haven’t yet, check this book out.

I remember the movie that was based on this book in the 80s or 90s with Paul Newman. It was a good movie.  I probably wouldn’t have picked this book up if it hadn’t been one of my book club books, but I really enjoyed it.

Sully reminded me of men I knew while growing up in small town America. He’s a good man but for circumstances we don’t have the clearest view of — and are a mystery to Sully too — he is having a hard time maturing into a stable life.

Sometimes life has a way of beating us down. Still, we can mean a lot to the people who love us.

Now I need to go to the library to rent the DVD of the old movie.

Hope this weekend if full of great pages for you.
