Current Reading March 30, 2013

The Long Voyage by Luke Rhinehart
Set in the 1980's this book is the story of a group of people that band together trying to survive a nuclear holocost.  I read many similar books when I was a teenager, so this brought back some "book memories" for me.  I thoroughly enjoyed the read; I got it as a free kindle download a few weeks ago and read it on my phone.
Interestingly, and not related to the book, I am able to read from my kindle app on my phone while walking on a treadmill.  Reading on my kindle makes me dizzy, but the smaller screen on my phone makes it difficult to lose my place, therefore making it easier to read :)  I'm going to pick a new book and put it on my phone this evening so it is ready and waiting for me.

Marmee and Louisa by Eve LaPlante
A great co-biography of Louisa May Alcott and her mother Abigail, written by a relative.  Many source documents are used so this seemed a very thorough review of Louisa and Abigail's lives.  Knowing more about the author of my all-time favorite books gives me some insight into some of the things that never really made sense to me.  A great book that I recommend to literature buffs.

The Sixth Station by Linda Stasi
New author for me (I'm so out of the reading loop that they are all new authors for me) but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be on the lookout for more from her.  This book is fiction, a story of the cloning of Jesus and the search a reporter takes to find the truth in what is going on around her.  I had a lot of trouble putting this book down :)

What have you been reading these last few weeks?????
