  1. I would expect nothing less of your reading of The Hobbit. It is a delightful book.

    33. Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy) - Robin Hobb - 4/5 - Very good read. Maybe a 4.5/5. I will definitely read the other 2 books in the Trilogy. I now have a new author for me to read.
  3. Athena's Reading List 2021

    I finished the Assassin's Apprentice and thoroughly enjoyed the book. I will definitely read the remainder of the Trilogy. We are doing ok and hope that you also are doing fine.

    I checked my reading history today from the library. From Oct. 17, 2017 until Oct 17, 2021 (4 years) I have borrowed 170 kindle books from the library. An average of 42.5 books per year. The library only lists the last 4 years (or I don't know how to go back further than that).
  5. White Lightning - George Jones
  6. What Are You Watching Now? - 2021

    I finished watching the Final Season (4) of Goliath on Amazon last night. I enjoyed all 4 seasons. Billy Bob Thornton played his part well I thought. Season 4 was about Opioids.
  7. Athena's Reading List 2021

    I am 28% into Book #1, Assassins Apprentice, of the Farseer Trilogy and am loving the book. Well written and great story.

    31. A Gambling Man - David Baldacci - 4/5 - A very enjoyable read. Takes place in the 40's/50"s and I love how Baldacci adapted the way people talked in that era (and people definitely did use words differently then). This is book 2 of 2 in the Archer series. Archer trains as a P.I. in Baytown, CA and unravels the towns many mysteries. 32. Another Type of Eden - James Lee Burke - 4/5 - Good read and strays somewhat from Burke's typical novels. Takes place in Colorado in the 60's and is a bit dark in nature. True evil takes place near the small town and although I liked the book it left me confused of several happenings, but maybe that was just me.
  10. Dark Waters, a new book by Katherine Arden has recently been released. it is a follow-up to her 2 previous books Small Spaces and Dead Voices. The "Smiling Man" returns. I have put a hold on the e-book at the library and hope to be reading it soon. I have enjoyed everything that Arden has written to date.

    28. Lightning Strike (Cork O'Connor Mystery Series) - William Kent Krueger - 4/5 - Typical Cork O'Connor series book. Good Read. This book goes back in time and the story is about when Cork's father was sheriff in the upper Minnesota area. 29. The Year of Living Danishly - Helen Russell - 3.5 - I enjoyed the book and learned a lot of the Danish people who it is claimed are the happiest people on Earth. 30. The Madness of Crowds (Chief inspector Gamache series) - Louise Penny - 4.5/5 - Great reading. Professor Robinson, a well known statistician, promises that if everyone follow her ideas that all will be well in a Country torn apart by the Covid Virus. Inspector Gamache is horrified by her ideas. subsequently a murder is commited and what follows is a good read with interesting characters involved in the story. Louise Penny is one of my current favorite authors.
  14. Lazy Lady - Fats Domino
  15. Keeping your TBR under control

    I have a kindle and my TBR list does not have to have books that are bought. I can put as many books as I want on the list and then either download them from the library or put them on hold when I am ready to read one of them. Digital Libraries and the kindle are one of the great advances in reading.
