An Excellent Return to the Outer Hebrides in Peter May’s Coffin Road

Yesterday I finished Home by Harlan Coben, the 47th book I have read in 2016. It is also the fifth book that I have finished in November. My goal for the year was to read 60 books.

October Reads and Reading Challenges Update!

Where DID October Go! Ok I give up where did October go? Seems like the NFL season just began and now we're at Week 8. The World Series is at Game 5 and both the NBA and NHL have begun their seasons. And yesterday the two colleges that I attended. As the Universities of Florida and Georgia renewed their heated rivalry.  I really don't care which team wins most of the time. But it's always nice when the team that needs it more gets the victory. Since the Gators stayed atop the SEC East with the victory, I was glad they...
