    I’ve only read number 1 & 10 on your list. Loved both a lot.
    I have 4,5,6&8 on my tbr pile and 18 is by the sister in law of my new boss!! Can’t wait to hear what you think 🤔

      I’ve started True Stories (audio book) because I need a book in the evenings after my eye have worn out.
      Garmer’s book is engaging.
      Dr Space will be released here Nov 19 hardcover…so I ‘ll wait til the paperback is available.
      After I finish Astley I’ll start Wild Sea….this book sounds fascinating
      and good for #WorldFromMyArmchair!
      Reading.. but it is slow going…eyes are just about exhausted.
      I getting new lenses implanted (cataracts) in both eyes in December….then
      I’ll get back to my ol’ reading speed!

        Wow what a year for you – your eyes & your hip?

        I know…I’ve accepted the fact the it is time for a major maintenance on moving parts and eyes! Once I get my “tune up” I’ll be back riding on all four wheels! 🙂
