   Gram77  Was at Books-A-Million today and checked on Fire and Fury. $30.00!! I'll get on a waiting list at the library. I am more interested/curious about It's Even Worse Than You Think by David K. Johnston.

   StormCnter  Anyone who is a constant reader of fiction remembers some characters who never went away. Years ago, I read "The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread" by Don Robertson. The main character is a boy named Morris Bird III (his name is a constant aggravation when his buddies and non-buddies refer to him as Morris Bird the T*rd ). There were two sequels, "The Sum and Total of Now" and "The Greatest Thing That Almost Happened". The last one was made into a television movie, but the story was changed so much and the cast was so off-kilter that I refused to watch it.
I have never forgotten Morris Bird III. Has anyone else read any of those books?

   Gram77  Remember when I said I was reading Endurance. I really liked this book and right now it is making the rounds of my neighbor being read. When everyone gets it read it will go to our library.

   StormCnter  That was an incredible story. I read it a few years ago and then got my husband the audio book. He still quotes from it. However, the whole time I was reading it, I had the fireplace on because those men were so cold!

   Bmoc  I hope no one minds if I promote my last book. I belong to the "Rave Review Book Club" or #RRBC on Twitter and it was named the club 'Book of the Month' for January. It is almost an autobiography of sorts dealing with child abuse. I was a paramedic and later an ER RN and I saw far too much abuse. I was also a severely abused child and right up until the end of the first section, everything that happened, happened to me.
If you look at the tabs in the image, you can see my tabs. For as long as I can remember, my tabs have been my email, Drudge, and then Lucianne.

   StormCnter  I just finished reading "Shattered", the Parnes/Allen book about the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. I enjoyed it. I love political books and since I knew the ending of this one, it was even more pleasurable. What shone through, chapter after chapter, was Hillary's disdain for having to ask for votes and donations from and shake the hands of, ordinary people across the country. She refused to make her presidential campaign announcement in Iowa, saying she wasn't going to "announce from some farmer's front porch". Her aides were tasked with preventing unplanned run-ins with "unvetted" people at rallies, speeches, or just public appearances. Instead, over and over, she went to the Hamptons, to Beverly Hills, to Martha's Vineyard, to mix with the wealthy elite and ask for their money. She assumed middle-income people of all colors across the country would support her, so she didn't think she had to (gasp ) mix with them. Of course, those were the very people flocking to see and hear (and then vote for ) Donald Trump who was listening to their anger and suggesting remedies. Bill Clinton, however, spotted the fallacy in Hillary's vote targets and tried to persuade the campaign people to set her up in smaller towns and in coffee shops and on street corners so people could see and hear her in areas where real people lived and worked. The aides refused and Hillary agreed with them. Of course those are the sections of the electorate she lost on Election Day. Hillary agonizes throughout the book about why people don't seem to like her. You and I know why, don't we.

   Gram77  Just saw on Lucianne that Sue Grafton has died. I literally devoured her books. Her book for Y just recently came out. How I will miss her talent. I was really surprised at her age. She was 77.

   MeiDei  The on-line book club this week previewed "Promise Not to Tell" - about a ponzi schemer, his cult that ended as the one in Waco, survivors decades later, and mysteries. The art world in the Seattle Puget Sound area is the location for this story and you can read some reviews at:

   StormCnter  I surrendered to curiosity and have begun "Shattered", the Parnes/Allen recap of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. I am a political junkie and have read many similar books over many years. I'm about 75 pages into this one and so far it's really interesting.

   MeiDei  I read the expanded clip of "The Christmas Scorpion", a Jack Reacher book, on the Mother page. In case you missed it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5209433/Jack-Reacher

sounds good.
