It’s time for the latest installment of what we are reading/watching/listening to! And with a weekend of foul weather ahead we are making sure that we not only have the necessary bread/milk/eggs, but that we also have laid in wonderful books and movies too.
I am loving the latest from Chris Bojhalian Secrets of Eden. From the very beginning you are sure that something is not quite right with the Rev. Stephen Drew and you just can’t put your finger on it. However, if you have ever read Bojhalian before, you know that it will be even more twisted than you ever dreamed.
It would seem that Barbara is in serious nesting mode! Her pick is Your Home, Your Sanctuary by Clodagh. It is a Rizzoli book so you know it will be beautiful.
She is also reading Enemies of the People: My Family’s Journey to America by Kati Marton. Sure, Marton’s family survived the Nazis but little did they imagine that the worst was yet to come under Communist rule. Everyone who we have spoken with who has read it loves this book.
Abs is slogging through the new Ian Rankin Doors Open. She reports that she does not like it as much as she did the Rebus series but she’s sticking with it.
Bill liked the Hurt Locker a lot. This movie is about the US Army bomb disposal unit stationed in Iraq. Not at all political in nature, this film simply tells of the not so simple job these soldiers do every day.
And I must confess that we are still discussing Game Change and can’t wait to get our hands on The Politician: An Insider’s Account of John Edward’s Pursuit of the Presidency and the Scandal that Brought Him Down by Andrew Young. Pat T. asked the very thought provoking question at lunch, "would you still vote for the canidate of your choice at the time after reading this book?" I told you that we can be a tad obsessive!
Have a great, safe weekend!
