What I'm reading Wednesday...

When I put library ebooks on reserve, they all seem to become available at the same time.  I laid aside Bettyville from last week for awhile since I needed to get some library ebooks read so I can turn the wifi back on to my Kindle.  (When the due date gets close for library ebooks, I turn off the wifi to my Kindle.  The books will get returned from my Amazon account, but the books stay on my Kindle and are readable until wifi to Kindle is turned back on.)


Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller

Caroline: Little House, Revisited is a retelling of the Little House story from Caroline Ingall's point of view.  It was authorized by the Little House Heritage Trust.  I could always sort of take or leave the Little House stories, but I do like the idea of reworked books, and this one seemed to be well researched and it was very well written.  I enjoyed it.


Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf

I wanted to read Our Souls at Night before I saw the Netflix original movie, but I broke down and watched it recently and enjoyed it.  I picked up my Kindle this morning and started the ebook, and made it halfway through, so it's a quick read.  The movie does very well at sticking close to the book.  Robert Redford and Jane Fonda did a great job, and I recommend the movie as well as the book.  I will probably finish the ebook tonight.  Then I need to get back to my 2017 Reading Challenge books.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on Our Souls at Night. I was home alone last night so watched it on Netflix (and finished it this morning). Lovely to see those seasoned actors in their twilight - gorgeous!
