Starting The Devil's Guard tonight. A lot of people I know have been telling me to read it for years --seems kind of silly though.

here is my review of the book I'm almost finished with.
Nostradamus and the Lost Templar Legacy. I feel it's a groundbreaking work that should draw more attention.
because the case that Nostradamus stole the Quatrains is strong.

Children of Hurin (Tolkien). The story is still one of the best I have ever come across. So sad.
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost.

"Let a man walk ten miles steadily on a hot summer's day along a dusty English road, and he will soon discover why beer was invented."

Travels with Charlie by John Steinbeck
I like Steinbeck, but I don't think I've read this one. Next up on my list...

Currently reading When Books Went To War: The Stories That Helped Us Win World War II by Molly Guptill Manning.

Panís Labyrinth. I just watched the movie a few nights ago and decided to spend an audible credit on the book adaptation. Edit: This was so good! Definitely worth the credit.

Miss Buncle Married by  DE Stevenson.  Just finished another book (Celia's House) by the same author
Bestow upon us, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the spirit to think and do always such things as are right; that we who cannot exist without Thee, may be able to live according to Thy will. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever

Has anyone else lost all interest in reading and forgotten almost everything they've read? I don't like reading anymore.

I find myself listening to audiobooks a lot more these days. I still read, but not like I did in my teens.

I've even forgotten what I've read. I'm not only complaining, some things are better forgotten, but I don't like what's happened to my attention span for reading.

Just finished Where the Bodies Lie by Mark Lisac. It's set in my home province and the twist at the end got me!

The Moonstone, by Wilkie Collins. Considered to be the first detective novel.

How is it?  What age would you say it is good for?
