Books Read

I posted a review last week of The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore.  I loved this book!

What I’m reading now

I am finishing up A Dual Inheritance by Joanna Hershon (30 pages left)!!!  I am enjoying it, but it isn’t a fast read.

What’s up next?The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.

Synopsis-A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it’s not too late to start over…

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).

  1. Oh how funny, one of my book clubs just selected the 100 Year Old Man book for our next book. Currently on the waiting list at my library…. looking forward to hearing what you think! I’m reading Spark (Elemental #2). It’s a Young Adult Paranormal story…. definitely quick reads!

  2. I like the sound of the 100 year old man, and what a cute cover! Looking forward to your review of A Dual Inheritance. Have a great week!
