Okay, Stopped Reading…
Three Generations, No Imbeciles, Lombardo. I just couldn’t continue, I think because my attention span is very short right now. Lots going on.
However, I did read 2 other books this week, and started another.
What It Is by Sarah Burleton. Quick read, a memoir by someone who was abused horribly by her mother.
Return From Tomorrow by George Ritchie w/ Elizabeth Sherrill. It is Ritchie’s account of his after life experience when he was at boot camp in training WWII. It is quite fascinating. I believe his co-author, Sherrill, originally wrote about George Ritchie in Guideposts magazine. They state in the book that Ritchie’s story was the inspiration for Raymond Moody’s research into after life experiences. I found the book very inspirational. Ritchie is a Christian, and believes the name of God is Jesus, based on his experience.
I am now reading a very entertaining book about the marijuana trade in the 70′s & early 80′s. It is called Jackpot, High Times, High Seas, and the Sting That Launched the War on Drugs by Jason Ryan. It is very interesting, I love historical books that recount events that didn’t happen very long ago. I’m also dying to see if I recognize any of the characters, because in the late 80′s or early 90′s a fugitive smuggler who was a pilot was captured in Richmond, and, sadly, broke the heart of a girl he was seeing, who I knew. Small world, no?
Plus, my sister, Betsy, is visiting from IN, I left a job under duress 2 weeks ago, starting a new job next week, closing on a house next week, youngest going to FL on a chorus trip next week, and moving the following week. I guess that’s about it!
