I got the new Harlan Coben ebook from the library! I've been on the waiting list for the actual book since it was listed there. Today, for the heck of it, I checked Ohio ebook, and it was there and available.
It's good, as usual.

Sorry, I've been running in and out for the last several days- we are rebuilding our greenhouse and I started moving my plants back in today. Hurray!


That, and I'm a big baby!

My sister sent me Still Alice a novel. Here's the blurb off the back-

In Lisa Genova's extraordinary New York Times bestseller, an accomplished woman slowly loses her thoughts and memories to a harrowing disease- only to discover that each day brings a new way of living and loving.

Sheryl to the rescue. Making my way on 'Perilous fight'. I knew about the density of the wood of live oaks, but Constitution was built with the ribs closer to each other so cannon balls would not go through spaces. Interesting to find out as she is still berthed in Boston harbor.

Does perilous Fight mention oak forest on the Gulf coast? We went to a small museum in Gulf Islands Nat'l Seashore that tells about the vital importance at one time of these oak trees, and how they would use sections grown in curves for special curved ship parts etc- pretty cool.

gulf coast not settled at that time, more like the Carolina coast. I looked back at book Nook cubit & it looks like Online book club might become active. I left a note.

I'm reading a book by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini called Beyond the Grave. It's a mystery that jumps back and forth between a modern day museum curator and a detective from the 1800's. Pretty interesting.

Oh. My. God. I finished Live Wire today. Shocking. If you're a Myron Bolitar fan, you've got to read this.

I don't want to say anything else because I don't want to ruin it for anyone.

Took a break from the Dune books to read Still Alice. It was really, really good. Gave me some idea of what my father is going through, although he has Lewy Body Dementia, which is slightly different from Alzheimers.

One I have not heard of... my mother was given the diagnosis of Alzheimer's, but as clear as she is, we're questioning it.

Did I tell ya'll that I finally finished 'Hedgehog'? I can't remember, of course.... Big Grin

Oof. We saw Alzheimer's up close and personal with my aunt many years ago, before people were aware of Alzheimer's, back in the late 60's, early 70's. My poor uncle dealt with it without assistance for probably 10 maybe 15 years.

That is what my Mom is doing with my Dad. I don't know how she does it, and doesn't want help from anyone.

That is pretty amazing. I hope she'll get assistance when it gets to be too much.

Hi all. For those who care for luved ones with alzheimers and dementia Group hug

I am reading 'Simon & The Oaks' by Marianne Fredriksson, translated by Joan Tate. It's a story about a boy and his family living in Sweden during WWII. The imagery is so beautious, I wish I could read the original in Swedish. She also wrote another novel 'Hanna's Daughters' which I'm going to read next!

Ooo - that sounds good. A short while ago I read "The Glass House" which was set in 1930's Czechoslovkia. WWll from a completely different perspective was quite interesting.... although not as lusciously written as it sounds your book is, still quite good.
