A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryce is informative, humorous and insightful. Follow Bill as he attempts to travel the Appalachian trail. He gives a history of the trail as well as details of his experience. He has a sense of self deprecating humor and insight that often had me giggling. Enjoyable read.
Hello Love by Karen McQuestion - This was another quick, easy read, and one I had a hard time putting down. I always love a story that features a lovable dog as a main character, and Anni, in this story, did not disappoint. She was an adorable dog that I wished I could meet in real life! The book tells the stories of two seemingly unrelated main characters. Dan, a widower with a teenage daughter, who misses his wife terribly. Their dog, Anni, helps them through their grief until the day she is stolen from their yard. Andrea is recovering from a nasty divorce and finding newfound independence. With the help of her adventurous friend, she remains open to the possibilities of new beginnings. As a property manager, she investigates a complaint of an unauthorized dog in one of the apartments and ends up rescuing the dog from abusive captors. Throughout the book, Dan and Andrea meet each other a couple of times in passing, neither knowing how intertwined their lives really are. Time after time, they come very close to discovering they each love the same dog, and consider her their own, but always something keeps the truth just out of their grasp. However, fate seems determined to bring them together. It was very entertaining and suspenseful (in a lighthearted way) to see when and how they would finally discover the truth. A satisfying, feel-good book that I would recommend to any dog lover, or just someone who likes a happy ending.
Easily Amused by Karen McQuestion - This was a quick, easy read (the only kind of book I have time for anymore!) and while I can't say it was a GREAT book, it wasn't awful, either. It kept my interest, and even though it was pretty easy to "guess" what the outcome would be, I still somewhat enjoyed reading about the main character's mildly amusing adventures on her way toward the expected ending. It's not a book I would go out of my way to urge others to read, but if it fell into your lap, it wouldn't be the worst book you've ever read.
I have been trying to get through a large backlog of podcasts recently, and in there, in an old episode of This American Life, was a reading from this book, the chapter about The Mimis. I was hooked there and immediately placed the book on hold.

It really did not disappoint. Insightful, charming, witty, this memoir had it all.
In the novel, Reckless by Sidney Sheldon, Tracy Whitney, a former felon and cat burglar, settled down to a quiet life in a small town in the Colorado mountains. Her life is turned upside down when her only child is killed or was he murdered? This book has myriad plots of fracking, espionage, terror, the CIA, the FBI, corruption, lies, greed, betrayal, vengeance, and enemies masked as allies.
Too much for this reader! I am a fan of Sidney Sheldon but it would be "Reckless" of me to say that I enjoyed THIS novel!
