My website woes continue. I am unable to email my monthly book picks at this time, and I apologize for the inconvenience as I work on the problem (translation: I am still seeking a webmaster). Thank you for your patience as I work on this transition.
In the meantime I continue to spend way too much time on the road away from my family. I can always tell I am spending too much time away by the diversity of titles I indulge. Besides quick reads, this past month I enjoyed Alex Beam’s Gracefully Insane (a history of New England’s famed McLean mental hospital, a sort-of “country club” for its often famed patients ranging from Sylvia Plath to Ray Charles), Vicky Myron’s Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World (the story of how an abandoned cat affected the patrons of a small-town library in Iowa) and Alice Schroeder’s magnificent book, The Snowball (billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s first authorized biography).
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful November, and enjoy your books!
