I always buy books for my family and friends for the holidays. Any ideas about some really great books?

It's just a book of poems... that being the title of one of the poems in it.

Another WWII fiction, which I always like (nonfiction WWII books too), but I am enjoying Ayelet Waldman's "Love & Treasure."

Kalleh, I just bought Pulitzer-prize-winning "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr, as one of my book-presents for the family. The setting is WWII. The ladies who run my town book store fell all over each other telling me anyone & everyone loves this book!

Oh, my gosh! I am buying it then. Can't wait. I might buy one for my daughter, too.

We had our Hanukkah party tonight, and my daughter gave the Doerr book to her father. I can't wait for him to finish it! Wink

She gave me "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah.

Happy Solstice. That's the holiday that makes sense! The sun't coming back!

Not a holiday book, but I just finished Wendell Berry's "Jaber Crow." A five course meal from a five star restaurant of a read.

Speaking of solstice, today was the shortest day of the year. That means the days are starting to get longer. Yay!

Uh, yeah - that's why the solstice celebration makes sense. Wink
