  1. Hey, FJ friends, this is a long shot, but maybe someone can help me out here. I am old as dirt, and I am trying to remember the title of a book I read when I was a kid. This was probably around the late 1960s or so. The book was about a friendship between a white girl and the black girl who came to her school during integration. They become friends but have to keep it a secret, so they meet behind the stage for lunch every day, sharing their lunches and just being friends. Of course, the adults find out and there is drama. I think - think - one of the characters was named Sybil? But not really certain on that. A plot point I think I remember is the black girl wants to be a botanist when she grows up. This book was my introduction to race relations and the difficulties the black children faced. I really want to re-read it and see how the story holds up after time. It was a formative book for me. So, if anybody else remembers this book, please let me know? I know it's not much to go on, but I figure if the book made an impression on me, maybe it made an impression on someone else. Y'all are great!

    Summer Reading

    So I've been in a long reading slump. I have so many books I start and just can't get into, But someone gave me the first Outlander book and I was super excited. I've seen clips of the show and it looked like something I would like. Time travel, men in kilts, the struggle between choosing between two different times, all things that appeal to me. But holy fuck. I'm not sure I want to watch the show after reading this, not unless they changed it.

    Spring Reading

    What is everyone reading this spring? I'm reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. It is a vampire book that also has historical info about Vlad the impaler. It is pretty interesting so far.

    Winter Reading

    I'm starting to get out of my reading slump. I read all summer and then spent all autumn getting books from the library and then just not feeling like reading anything. The book that got me started reading again is A Beautiful, Terrible Thing by Jen Waite and I absolutely hated it. I kept reading it to see if it got any better but it didn't. This is a non-fiction book written by a woman who found out her husband was cheated on her. It is told in a back and forth way where one chapter is about when they first started dating and the next will be about her finding out her husband cheated. One of the big issues with this book, besides that no one wants to read pages about looking at Google, is that the author internet diagnosis her husband as a sociopath. She then finds a therapist that on the first visit, after just meeting the author and never meeting the husband, also diagnosis the husband as being a sociopath. I give the side eye to any therapist who would do that. The author went to another therapist who would not place a diagnosis on her husband without actually meeting him and asked what the author's goal in her marriage was because if it was to stay married she recommends marriage counseling. It is implied that that therapist is bad. Half this book is about how the husband is a monster sociopath. I can't believe the ex-husband hasn't sued. Also I'm bothered because they have a child together and there is no way she isn't telling this kid the father is evil. The guy has a child from a first marriage and even the author admitted he is a loving, devoted father. The second issue I have with the story is a great deal of time is spent talking about the "Croation" which is what she calls the woman her husband cheated on her with. There is a lot of talk about how she can't understand how a woman can do that do another woman and how absolutely awful the woman is. It isn't until the end of the book that she casually mentions that her husband was in a serious relationship with someone else when they started dating and that relationship only ended because the woman found text messages showing Marco(the ex-husband) was cheating. She sort of mentions that she probably caused pain to another woman, but there is no real understanding that SHE did the same thing that this woman she hates so much did. Her getting involved with Marco when he was in a serious relationship is just presented as how he is a sociopath. Finding out your husband cheated on you is terrible, but this book was poorly written and cheaters are not always sociopaths. Sometimes people are just assholes. The husband is a total cheating asshole. There is not doubt about it. Is he some sort of a sociopath? I don't know. She didn't sell me on the idea that he was. I think he is probably just your average, everyday jerk who married her because he needed to become a citizen and her wealthy parents were giving him lots of money to fulfill his dreams.

    Books for the autumn

    I started a new topic although it is technically still summer, but for me autumn already began. And because I have loads and loads an tons of work to do, I won't start these books right away. I will buy these books. Normally I would wait until I can borrow them from the library but I became a very slow reader in the last couple of months due to less time. Last time I borrowed 2 books from the library I did not read them in 7 weeks until I gave them back because I gave up. I definitely will read "Ida" from Katharina Adler. The book is about the great-grandmother from the author, Katharina Adler, and she is the client Sigmund Freud called Dora. It's about her life and I want to read it because she was more than just a client from Freud and she deserves to get a voice. The book is only available in german, when I understood amazon right. I will read "The accidental further adventures of the hundred-year-old-man" from Jonas Jonasson. I read the first one and listened to the Audio books of the other two books (the girl who saved the king of sweden, and Hitman Anders and the meaning of it all). I want to read the second book from Deborah Feldmann, "Exodus". I read Unorthodox because one of you recommended it, so I want to know how the story goes on. I wanted to add Frank Schätzing's Die Tyrannei des Schmetterlings (no idea if there is an english version...sorry) but I have a love or hate relationship with that author. I don't want to spend my money on a hardcover book I will hate. For this book I will wait for my turn on the list in the library. Well, or not. Maybe I won't read it at all. That's all for now.

    Summer Reading

    What are you reading this summer? Some of my recent favorites are: The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen Hendrik is in his eighties and lives in a retirement home. Some of his entries are funny, while others are sad. The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin Tells the story of early Hollywood screen writer, Frances Marion and Mary Pickford. The book was fiction, but I found it fascinating. Arabella of Mars by David Levine Arabella was raised in the Mars Colony until she was sixteen, when her Mother decided she needed to return to England (and Earth) to become a lady. Left poor when her father dies, she poses as a boy to work on an air ship to Mars. This was very readable Science Fiction. I'll add others...
  8. Does anyone have any favourite books on "tape" - or more like digital audio copies than actual tape :p I have listened to some non-fiction ones that I like, such as God No by Penn Gillette (on Youtube) Interestingly, I have not found Satan *Speaks* in audio format. There seem to be more non-fiction books about Atheism. Any recommendations?
  9. I am always looking to spruce up my TBR list, and my goodreads/tumblr feeds, so I enjoy reading and following book blogs. However, I have trouble finding book blogs that aren't geared towards YA. I mean, it makes sense, because bloggers are most likely younger people, and young people love YA. I am not knocking YA or anything, but it gets tiresome when post after post features similar YA-fantasy type books. So I am turning to FJ! Anyone know of a book blogger they love?
  10. Read a horror book: Read a nonfiction book about science: Read a collection of essays: Read a book out loud to someone else: Read a middle grade novel: Read a biography (not a memoir or autobiography): Read a dystopian or post-apocalyptic novel: Read a book originally published in the decade you were bron: Listen to an audiobook that has won an Audie Award: Read a book over 500 pages long: Read a book under 100 pages long: Read a book by or about a person that identifies as transgender: Read a book that is set in the Middle East: Read a book that is by an author from Southeast Asia: Read a book of historical fiction set before 1900: Read the first book in a series by a person of color: Read a non-superhero comic that debuted in the last three years: Read a book that was adapted into a movie then watch the movie & debate which is better: Read a nonfiction book about feminism or dealing with feminist themes: Read a book about religion (fiction or nonfiction): Read a book about politics, in your country or another (fiction or nonfiction): Read a food memoir: Read a play: Read a book with a main charter that has mental illness:
