I’ve had such a strange week!! I am in the process of reading three books, that is a hint right there that it’s a bad choice. I really do so much better at one or two at a time. I finished NOTHING in print, but did finish one in audio.
I enjoyed Bellevue and I would recommend it if you enjoy the history of medicine and a long standing hospital. I learned much more about Bellevue itself and it covers most of the major medical events since the mid 1700’s. I will say the the narration while good, became a bit flat and dry for me, the audio is nearly 15 hours. I’m still glad I listened to this one. I purchased it on audible and have no plans to do a full review.
This is a problem when they are all good, all compelling and vie for your attention. I am now working on finishing them by reading them alone, in likely the order shown. Let me just say that Alex George has captured my heart again in Setting Free The Kites, it is so very good!!
While I’ve had this book on my shelf for over a year, I found it on audible at a great price and picked it up. I’m barely into it but the topic is fascinating. You can learn more here. This book was highly recommended by Pamela Klinger-Horn an avid reader who also works at Excelsior Bay Books in MN.
I attended two book events last week! On Wednesday evening I heard Karen Brown discussing her new book The Clairvoyants with Lori Roy. This was in Oxford Exchange in Tampa, FL. It’s a bookstore, coffee and tea bars, restaurant and gift shop combination in a gorgeous historic building in downtown. If you should find yourself in Tampa, it’s worth the detour to visit.
Friday afternoon found me at my favorite Indie Bookstore, Vero Beach Book Center, and Pam Jenoff discussed her new book, The Orphan’s Tale. I was so thrilled to meet Pam for the first time, and she was so kind. She is on tour and had practically lost her voice when she arrived and while I wanted to ask here a million questions I tempered myself and we had a nice chat. The crowd asked some great questions, I believe we are all in awe of her background and the amazing gift she shares in her books. Loving this book so far.
March is upon us in just two days!!! My March list of books to read is long!!! I hope you’re enjoyed some good books, and I hope you’ll share what you’re reading!
