what are you reading right now? is it good or bad?

January 5, 2024 9:37am CST
Good morning, I always read a Kindle book and a library book. The library book I am reading is "The Cat Who Moved a Mountain" by Lilian Jackson Braun. I have been reading a lot of the books from the The Cat Who...series. This one is not the best but I will finish it as there are some funny parts The Kindle book I am reading is "Christmas at the Cat Cafe" by Jessica Redland. This book is excellent. I highly recommend it to everyone. It is especially recommended if you have fibromyalgia or know somebody with it and want to understand it better. I understood more from reading it. . the author uses what I think are British terms as I don't understand them but it is still so good that I don't mind I think there will be a sweet romance. the suggestion of the romance I love the couple if they get together! I love a good romance book! what are you reading and how do you feel about it?

@mildredtabitha I am so sorry. This was so many years ago, about 30+ years ago. the company sent me a list of the books available each month via the regular postal mail, then I would mail my order back and wait and then they would send me my books. I forgot how I did that. It seems so old-fashioned these days. I don't remember the name of the book club and don't know if they are in business anymore. I know I belonged to a Christian romance book club and really loved it but it went out of business while I was still a member.

I enjoy Christian books, too. I used to be a member of a Christian book club, about 30 years ago. I really enjoyed those books but they got too expensive

I'm glad you like the Kindle book you're reading. I'm glad there are good parts in the library book.

thank you! The Kindle book is excellent. I love how they are dealing with fibromyalgia and it is teaching me more about it. There are some funny things the two cats' pet parent says to them that have me laughing out loud.

@just4him I finished the library book Saturday evening. The ending of the book ended far better than the rest of the book. I gave it 3/5 stars in my reading journal. I also gave it that many stars because the Siamese cats in the book are adorable sounding.

I never heard of this series, will look into it. Have you read any more in the series since this reply? I really get impatient when I have to wait for another book to come out. I am reading a book by Erma Bombeck who wrote a long time ago. Sadly she passed away in the 1990s. she was a super writer who was so funny! She wrote newspaper columns about life. Have a great weekend!

@Tina30219 I should start on my library books but keep reading a book I owned while I was waiting to go to the library. I am starting to read more lately.

At the moment I'm reading about an autobiography by a woman who grew up in the outback. She has some interesting tales to tell.

I'm back reading Joanne Flukes books, Banana Cream Pie Murder. At this time, Hanna is a newly wed to Ross(the jerk). The end of this story, Mike(the policeman)is helping Hanna to find out, where Ross went and why. They were married two weeks!

@LovesEverybody All of Joanne Fluke's books are about desserts, like cinnamon rolls, banana cream pie, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate fudge cake, raspberry cobbler, blackberry pie and blueberry muffins. These are only a few that I remembered.

@kobesbuddy Yes, I get hungry reading Joanne Fluke's books! then Hannah and Michelle cook so many other 'regular" foods (I mean non-desserts) for her family and friends. Both of them make cooking look so easy and what they make sounds so good! I won't be getting to the library until next week as Courtney and I are cooking three meatless personal pan pizzas this week so that I can have one for Wednesday through Friday which is when I really need the pizza as I fast that day for Lent. I have to take books back to the library next week anyway and get some more and go to the pharmacy as I have $8 off anything in the store from getting so many prescriptions filled

Now that you told me about it remember about it a little bit. I disliked Ross even though I don"t like thinking badly of him I want to read the Joanne Fluke books I don't remember. I have to look in my reading journal to see the ones I have read lately

I am reading a book for anxiety and I think it's good. It's written by a psychiatrist. I tried to read other books and I am not interested. I can't concentrate.

@LovesEverybody That psychiatrist experienced anxiety too. He had panic attacks, but I think that he didn't have many panic attacks. He explained that he knew what to do and never developed a panic disorder.

@dya80dya that sounds like the perfect book to read. Usually, when I am reading a book about anxiety by a psychologist they don't have first-hand experience. I am glad you found this book and are reading it

I understand as I spent several years about 25+ years ago without reading anything as I couldn't concentrate either. I eventually got my ability to read back. i still have severe anxiety though That is great you are reading the book about anxiety. It may help you with your anxiety. I like reading books about anxiety written by a psychiatrist and by a person who is suffering from it because they know what anxiety is like more than a psychiatrist who probably never personally experienced it

Do you like it? I saw it all over YouTube and everybody loved it. However, it must be only me because I even bought the book I was so excited to read it and then I couldn't force myself to finish it. That was last year, even though this year when it comes to books I am having a hard time finding books that I like.

What is your favorite magazine? My sister gets me a subscription to Woman's World for my birthday every year. That has always been my favorite for many years. I remember my mom buying it at the grocery store weekly for the two of us to read.

@jstory07 I used to read First with my mom. I really not sure I can't afford it now that I am on my own as things get too expensive with all my other groceries and bills. But that is okay as I am grateful I can read Woman's World since my sister gets it for me. Have a great morning!

Lilian Jackson Braun writes some good books. I haven't read one in awhlle. Would you believe I haven't even started a book yet for this new year I was sick throughout the holidays and just didn't feel like reading. However, after reading about your books I got my Kindle and I'm going to pick one to start today

I agree Lilian Jackson Braun wrote some good books. I didn't read any of these books for many, many years. Last fall I decided to start reading what I didn't read of the series again. It ended up that I must have not read very many of the books when I was younger or forgot the plot of them as I don't remember any of the books when I chose them at the library starting when I chose to reread them. You were sick, you didn't have to read. I am glad to hear you are going to pick one to start! Did you pick a book yet? have a super day!

I'm listening to Dust by Hugh Howey. It's third book of a book series called Silo. So far it's good. I'm hoping it will end good.

I like The Cat Who books. I like listening to them in the car when I'm driving. Right now I'm reading Denial by Beverly Mclachlin, a who done it, for one book club and The Woman in the Window by A. J.Finn for my other book club. It's considered a thriller.

I finished The Cat Who book I was reading this morning. I have never heard an audiobook version of any of The Cat Who books. I read The Woman in the Window some time ago and really liked it. I am currently reading Fangirl by Tessa Bailey. She writes spicy romances but in my opinion, does the writing with class. I am very early into it and like it so far

@paigea I love my library but the system I think it is seriously underfunded as I watch YouTube videos and the people in those videos have access to many more books than my library system has ever had. I have been buying two or three bookmarks for $1 each time I go to help support the library. Plus, I get to match a bookmark to the book I am reading! I hope you like "The Women in the Window" I can't remember vividly what it is about but I do remember liking it

Only got a kobo e-reader these days, its easier to travel with. Reading two books, one is A Dark Lure by Loreth White, thriller, just started and seems goodish, the other is the second volume of 1001 Arabian Nights, specifically Sinbad's journeys.

I don't think they had Kobo e-readers 14 years ago when I got my first Kindle, or at least I never heard of them back them I will look up A Dark Lure as I do like thrillers once in a while. It has been years since I read a book like 1001 Arabian Nights. Are you enjoying it? Do you ever read any paper library books when you don't feel like reading your kobo?

@LovesEverybody Because we've been travelling for close on two years now without a home base, I've given up on paper books and library memberships. I used to travel with paper books, but it takes up too much space and weight, the e-reader is a godsend. I still prefer paper books though, and probably always will. I had the Burton edition of the Arabian Nights, but did not enjoy that, I've now got the 3 volume Penguin Edition and that is much better and very enjoyable. I'll probably also get Christmas at the Cat Cafe, ta for the heads up.

@TraveOnWorld I understand now. I would find it hard to have paper books if I were traveling so much. I discovered lately that I prefer paper books too. But I do read my Kindle as I enjoy it. I highly recommend Christmas at the Cat Cafe. I am almost finished with it. I am on 78%. It is a long book but such a good book!

I think I may have heard of the book you mentioned, but I don't know what it is about. I feel the same way about the library book I am reading because I am interested enough to see what happens. I want to see the ending. I think I have a general idea of what happens from reading ones after that book in the series. but want to confirm it
