A book that is stress-free and that I can relate to and forget about all my current problems. .

A book by Debbie Macomber called "The Shop On Blossom Street". It's about a woman who loves knitting and the only family she has is a sister that she doesn't get along with and her Ma. She decides to open a knitting store on "Blossom Street" in Seattle. She starts a knitting group class and they learn how to make a baby blanket. That is how she meets new friends and also finds a new Hunny! :mrgreen: Kinda reminds me of myself and my current circumstance in a few ways except she has had cancer a couple times and that makes her thankful for each new day. I guess I'm just getting tired of murder mysteries.

Do you enjoy cozy mysteries? They are much milder form of the murder mystery.

I just tried an Agatha Christie book and it's a sleeper. I found out Dean Koontz has a new book coming out soon and Stephen King has a new one called "Gwendy's Button Box" that I was able to get for $6 on an Amazon special which is what I had planned to read. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for mysteries or any book that requires some "thinking" - usually when I'm stressed. It's actually hard to keep my mind on a book during that time so something I can relate to and isn't real depressing I might be able to handle. The Debbie Macomber book seemed to fit the bill.

I'm reading The Devils Disciples, its the story of Hitlers inner circle through the birth of the party to the Nuremburg tribunals. it's non-fiction and reads like a novel. The only better writing ive read on this subject would be Albert Speers Inside the Third Reich.
