There is no doubt that we are smack dab in the middle of winter and what better way to wade through than with a good book and a lovely fire in the fireplace. Here is this week’s installment of What We Are Reading This Week!
Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. This is the latest silliness from Fforde who always creates an interesting world outside of what is possible and sometimes desirable. In this book, it's a society organized by caste according to what colors one is able to see most vividly. Purple is at the top of the heap, and greys always steal the bacon.
Googled: The End Of the World As We Know It by Ken Auletta I am listening to this book on CD which is all about the visionary engineers who created Google and how it has grown into the force we know today.
Then We Came To the End by Joshua Ferris.This novel explores life at an ad agency in its decline and the characters that fill its cubicles and suites.
I 'm reading U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton and it’s another winner from an extremely talented author. Memorable characters and thought-provoking psychological and historical themes make this page turner a very satisfying read.
Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar. The book that started it all! The young, beautiful, privileged and behaving badly and running amok in Manhattan!
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart. Will Ruby be able to survive the loss of her boyfriend, best friend and the respect of her fellow class mates?
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer. A fictional account of a very real house that survived World War II.
