Well, in my case it is plural -- I have four books I am currently reading:
- Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner. I'm about halfway through; it's ok but not completely thrilling me. It has a "scandal of the month" flavor to it that is disappointing. But as Weiner is one of my favorite authors, I am giving her the benefit of the doubt.
- Unlikely Soldiers by Jonathan F. Vance. I've just started this one; and the subtitle says it all -- "How Two Canadians Fought the Secret War Against Nazi Occupation". I think I'll enjoy it and hopefully learn about some heroic men in the process.
- Outcasts United: A Refugee Team, an American Town by Warren St. John. I heard about this book on Books on the Nightstand's weekly podcast and I just picked it up at the library. It's about a young woman in suburban Atlanta who coaches a soccer team made up of refugee children from all over the world. Another one I think I'll enjoy.
- Ulysses by James Joyce. I don't know what to tell you about this book but that the language is wonderful and I also want to throw the book against the wall. But I will move forward .....
