I’ve never been so fully engaged in a book. The last one was perhaps Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. The parts of the book touching on the fear and pain of losing a father made me cry. I can’t recall … Continue reading
Reading books with the best kids. Books they actually enjoy. I get so much out of it and their comments and things they observe are so interesting. I appreciate good illustrations as well. Children’s books are very therapeutic and calming … Continue reading
These lines were arresting and expressed what I have thought a countless number of times. Oh the liberty to write with such freedom. But the author has bravely done so even when alive. She is shockingly honest. She speaks of … Continue reading
That was the first book (audio book) I got after placing some on hold at the electronic library. I use the app Libby on my phone and need to sign in with my library account details. It was brilliant. Stark … Continue reading

I’m utterly fascinated by this throughly researched book by Joby Warrick . No surprise that it won a Pulitzer. I’m still in the midst of it, but it’s truly educating my ignorant self, who understands only a fraction about the … Continue reading
It’s been so hard to concentrate. I bring a book to my chemo sessions and so far after 8 sessions I haven’t read a single word. Somehow the brain fog is even worse during the session. It feels like a … Continue reading
I love Children’s Books that are well made. Gonna start writing about my favourite ones.
Am in the middle of the novel ‘A Room with a View’ and the trailer on Youtube of the 1985 movie brought back lovely memories. Would love to watch this movie again and if only our theatres screened old movies. … Continue reading
The book ‘A Stolen Life’ moved me tremendously. I talk about it my latest post.
I watched the movie The Dark Knight Rises and felt a chill when the random shooting scene came on. I can’t even begin to imagine how terrifying it must have been for the victims. The horrifying mass murder in a … Continue reading
