Happy Labor Day!!  My dad began his career after WWII with Ford Motor Company, he learned early on that the Union was a huge help to him and the other people working on the assembly lines building cars.  He ran for Local Union President and garnered notice from the United Auto Workers people and in 1965 he became a servicing representative, working  with Ford and other local unionized companies to ensure workers rights.  He negotiated contracts and became politically active, meeting every president from Kennedy to Clinton.  This was a huge part of my growing up, I owe my happy comfortable childhood to the UAW and the opportunities it gave my father, and many other workers.

My reading has been in a MAJOR slump the past two weeks.  I started reading A Window Opensand I like this book, it’s interesting, but I was away for a few days and my reading time was all off, and then we returned home and I picked this up-

The Race for Parisbecause I signed up for a blog tour, and it’s interesting but going very slow for me.  I typically love Meg Waite Clayton’s writing and I am fascinated by the role women played during WWII and most especially the liberation of France.  It’s frustrating.  Grr!

In audio I’m having much more success.  I’m listening to-

The Night SisterThis one is narrated by Cassandra Campbell, one of my favorites and as with all Jennifer McMahon books it’s creepy good!  I’m enjoying very much.

What’s up next?  It’s back to A Window Opens, and then onto several more books publishing this month!  Especially looking forward to The Mistake I Made by Paula Daly, her books are very good.

Please share with me the best book you’ve read lately!!!!  I really need out of this funk!!

    Thanks for offering these books. I am doing research on 19th century Scotland for a book I’m working on, and I need to come up for air and read some novels.

    Over the weekend I read On the Move: A Life by Oliver Sacks (I know, NOT a novel). A friend had recommended it to me, and I really enjoyed it.

    Happy Labor Day! I, too, grew up in a union family, and I am grateful for it.
