ATG "I wonder…" Wednesdays

Happy Wednesday to all our readers!

Today I am wondering: what is the last book you read?  Did you love it?  Hate it?  Somewhere in between?  Tell us all about it!

  1. I’m reading “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot. Fascinating! More to come later in a book review.

    I’ve been reading “Decision Points” written by our former President, George W. Bush. It gives the reader an inside look at his life prior to marrying Laura, details the chain of events that led him down the road to becoming President, as well as gives his perspective on how he handled different situations during his terms as President, such as Hurricane Katrina and the War on Iraq. The book is very candid and has a casual tone; I have found it to be a good read so far. Some say this is his attempt at trying the reshape his legacy, but I think that he felt widely misunderstood as he lets the reader in on many things that we didn’t know.

  3. I read my books on CD now since I can work on my projects and read a book at the same time. Over the holidays I wanted something light, so I listened to two books from the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini. I had already read “The Sugar Camp Quilt” and “The New Year’s Quilt”. I can now add “The Master Quilter” and “The Winding Ways Quilt” to the list.

  4. I am reading The Time of Their Lives: The Golden Age of Great American Book Publishers, Their Editors and Authors by Al Silverman and houses — Farrar Strauss and Giroux, Simon and Schuster. Great anecdote about J.D. Salinger. Highly recommended. Just sorry not much/nothing on scholarly academic publishers.

  5. Just finished reading Celia Sher Wagner’s The Journal of Unemployment Studies. Lots is funny and lots is serious. All about Celia’s two-year job search which has finally ended. The book is for sale on Amazon for all of us to read!

  6. I recently finished ‘At Home: A Short History of Private Life’ by Bill Bryson and am currently reading ‘Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age’ by Ann M. Blair.
