Just finished reading Natural Woman by Carole King. Great memoir of one of the world's best songwriters ever!

Scandle, I recently added that to my list of books to get. It was mentioned in The Week. Disturbing or not, I'm looking forward to it!

I finished The Girl Who Played With Fire - which was excellent after a slightly slow start and then finished off the trilogy with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Another very good read, but quite different from the first two, as the protagonist (if you want to call her that...) was not as active. Just started Tana French's The Likeness.

But on to immediate problems - having to work on performance review comments now. UGH. I really hate this part of my job...!

I just started "The Orphan Master's Son" which is a novel based on present-day North Korea. I don't know how truth-based it is, but it is pretty disturbing.

That's why I buy books that I otherwise need. There is no like or dislike, just necessity. Luckily I enjoy my work, and haven't been disappointed by a purchase yet.

amazon prime is my friend

I forgot that I recently read Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson, my first book by him. Interesting, but parts were tedious.

I usually like very heavy handed books, and will occasionally break free a bit and read something humorous. But even my heavy handed books need humor too, bcause sometimes the most serious stuff? You just have to make fun of, or laugh at, or you can't survive them.

I am reading an amazing book called Three Cups of Tea. It is about a man who goes to Afghanistan and opens schools for girls. I have just started reading it and honestly......I was hesitant in buying it. Forgive me, I just do not know that I can stand reading how the women are treated there. But if word does not get out on how they are treated they will never be helped.

I will have to find it. I have read quite a bit dealing with the German theater of war, some of the stories to me are better than any writed could conjure.

The book you first mentioned Grabbed me when I started it on Saturday. It is scary to think that this was a reality he lived.

Looking, right after I read that I read a book by a German sniper on the eastern front. He wrote about the atrocities that he and his guys went through from the Russians. I just couldn't have that much sympathy even though he did say he had no idea about the camps due to the Nazi propoganda machine. I do believe it, but still...
