What Are You Reading This Winter?

Posted Feb 10, 2017

It’s been a mild winter, but still cold enough to warm up with a book.  Here’s what some of our Snow Better Time to Read participants have read:

Science Fiction

The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood, read by Carol P.

Freedom or security?  But given human nature, can there ever really exist either one, truly? A dystopian novel with some very funny situations, but also very disturbing.



Lucky Girl by Mei-Ling Hopgood, read by Anne C.

Beautifully written story about culture, adoption, family roots of an Asian culture, and being brought to the USA as a young baby. It tells of the love of both families and the strength and understanding of a young woman who, in her 20s, learns of her birth family and the sisters, brothers, and parents she has in her birth country.


Max Gate by Damien Wilkins, read by Jim R.

Told from the perspective of Nellie, servant at the estate of Tom Hardy, the reader is given an opportunity to listen in on his death and burial as his second wife, friends, and onlookers lay him to rest.



Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin, read by Mike H.

A book that highlights the political genius and outstanding leadership of one of the greatest leaders of our country. Team of Rivals follows Lincoln and his cabinet through the Civil War as the Union fought to hold our country together. A riveting and informative read; highly recommend.

Lucky Day

Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple, read by Resa D.

Elenore Flood lives in Seattle. She is married to Joe, a surgeon, and has a son Timby.  She’s on a quest for self-improvement.  She is trying to write a memoir. Poetry helps her middle age brain. Elenore was an animator for Looper Wash, a kids’ series fashioned after her childhood with sister Ivy. They have had a falling out since Ivy’s marriage to Bucky. Funny story about getting your life together.
