I just ordered "The Shining" by Stephen King - I've never liked his writing before but I'm willing to give it another go with this horror classic.

Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.
I like reading non-fiction books, especially those that encourage me to think. :)

I just bought “the secret life of bees” on eBay to support small business! And just because...why not?!

I recently purchased "Oona Out of Order", by Margarita Montimore. I'm enjoying it very much, so far.

I actually rarely buy fiction books for myself, though in the near future, I intend on starting a physical collection of my top reads. The most recent book I purchased was on cybersecurity, I believe. I usually purchase textbooks and IT certification study guides.

I bought Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng about a month ago at a used book shop in the library. It was only $1 and a great book.

The last book I bought was the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens. Right before all the COVID craziness began, I discovered Half Price Books and browsed for hours before settling on this one!

Wow, I read that book when it first came out. I thought it was great.

Have you read the other books in the series? Enjoy!

Yes, I've read all of them except the 4th book. That one, where the whole gang goes to Florida, was a little too strange for me. I just couldn't get into the story, so I decided to skip it. I love all the other ones tho.
