Books are Treasures

Books are treasures.  I love to read and despite all that must be done to prepare for this big move I don't give up my reading.  Yesterday, as I had to be out of the house while it was inspected, I took myself shopping for a bit then to a park with a cup of tea and a muffin to finish the last book listed below.  I have my book club coming for supper on Friday night for the very last time at this house and I must skim re-read the book I selected for us "Growing Up" by Russell Baker.  Then its on to a very long tome on Hamilton that is the May book club selection.

Here are some recent reads that I offer as recommendations and I don't recommend a book that I don't like so count these as good reads.  There are real treasures!

1. A Man Called Ove
by Fredrik Backman

2. The Lost Mother
by Mary McGarry Morris
3. Girl Waits With Gun
by Amy Stewart
4. The Summer Before the War
by Helen Simonson
