Page Turners

It has been over a month since our last round of Book Club and it’s not as if I haven’t been turning pages like a pro since then.

I can’t say that this latest round of reads would qualify me for the title of “Intellectual,” but none of them elicited an eye-roll, so I think we’re in a good place.

What’s been keeping me sharp?

Comfort Food, by Kate Jacobs

gods in alabama, by Joshilyn Jackson

Living History, by Hillary Rodham Clinton

firefly lane, by Kristin Hannah

As per the usual, our collective reading list…
