Recommended Reads

This post will be for everyone to list books that they recommend to the group (not to be confused with the book club book that we will all be reading together sort of). Just throw your recommended book in the comments for others to see. Since I have finished “The Invention of Wings” and the due date for finishing is not until September 30 and the new book club announcement will not be until October 1st; I have started another book on my own. I am never without a book. There have been times that I am reading 4 at one time; but I am never reading nothing. This is why I love my kindle. There is no need to have a stack of books on the night stand, there is no need to be in a panic if you finish a book on Saturday night and the library is closed Sunday and Monday, there is no need to read cheap novels. You always have a plethora of books at your fingertips that can be downloaded in seconds. Also, if you start reading the just purchased kindle book and after 7 or less days you don’t really like it, you can return it to amazon for a full refund.

The book I just started and am totally loving was recommended by Heidi Kaminski. “The Emerald Mile”. It’s about an epic trip down the Colorado River during an outlandish spring run off that closed the river to floaters. This group illegally floated in a dory in an attempt to set a time record for the float in a number of hours that normally takes two weeks. There is lots of history about the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon and the building of dams. Although I just started, I see this as being a fabulous read and recommend it to all Wild Women Book Club members.

One thought on “Recommended Reads

  1. I recommend “Little Bee” by Chris Cleave. “Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt . “Peony” by Pearl Buck. I am currently reading “The Amazing Adventure of Kavalier & Clay” by Michael Chabon. I will let you know if it keeps me interested. I just finished “Horns” by Joe Hill. An easy quick read with Steven King-ish attitude, if you like that stuff. (I do!)
