For my summer class, the current book is Housekeeping, which is a coming-of-age novel set in the 1970s.

I am also reading The Langoliers, which is a novella in Stephen King's compilation Four Past Midnight.

Summer On Blossom St. by Debbie Macomber

It's a happy book about a simple life that I would like to have. This woman owns her own knitting store on a street called "Blossom" somewhere in Seattle. There's also other small stores on that street like a book store and a flower shop. Reminds me of a neighborly small town. Everyone ends up meeting each other through knitting classes. This is like book 7 in the series and this time they have a young guy who is 35 taking the knitting class to help relieve stress and get his blood pressure down - his doctor recommended the class and the doctor also knits - his wife taught him. I'd like to have a job like that. I just started reading the book, but I bet this guy meets his new hunny in the same knitting class! :mrgreen: I could write these books!

I was reading Her Own Rules, by Barbara Taylor Bradford, that was finished in about a week, At Home With The Templetons took much longer, so I split them out and read them at separate intervals.
To be fair, I paid for these as second hand books, and out of it came some free-handed counselling that I didn't quite expect owing to some past life and PTSD;on the first one and maybe some written empathy on the second one.
At least I didn't have to unpick any plotlines, maybe on the second one, there was some strange entourages from different people and it seemed like The Curse of The Vontrapps a bit to begin with, then the more you read of it, you could gauge a lot from parental interference, domestic faults, and crowd gossiping followed by debts, love and loss. If a book is getting too old, I still make an effort to read it, but it usually has to be in a paperback copy, because I hate small writing.
I opt for medium size font style, formal when I read. I don't mind looking at some entries, like the book of Shackleton I read and, The Templetons had some letters, pen and pad was a thing in the nineties. Email took away a lot of handwritten contribution, dressing up in Victorian style clothes and using a chalk and chalk board was one experience I shan't forget. I cut my finger on it, and blood spurted everywhere' ruining' the experience.
The time I coughed halfway through a SATS exam was far worse though but at least I kept a steady hand that time.
