    Love Affairs of the Courts of Europe by Thornton Hall

    This is one of those casual, put your feet up and rot your brain books.  The author does a good job of rousing your interest in odd corners of history, and I enjoyed it.  I'm currently working away at my third book by Hall.

    Got the Muirwood Trilogy for Christmas by Jeff Wheeler.  Finished the first book The Wretched of Muirwood.  Enjoying book two The Blight of Muirwood.  Still have book 3 to look forward to The Scourge Of Muirwood.  So far the three books are very interesting.

    I'm reading Ann Richards' Deadwood series. Fun, paranormal, romantic and fast moving. Just what a person needs after riding 2018's roller coaster. Whew, what fun now.

    I am reading David Copperfield. To my great surprise it is utterly captivating. I've read it as a child, in translation and I think an abbreviated version. All those characters are amazing! How can anyone think "classics" are no longer relevant  :)?!

    Would post an image or a hyperlink but apparently I'm too much of a noob to figure it out thus far :) Tried both buttons for this & neither of them worked, and my dinner's about to come off the stove so maybe another time!

    "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck " is one of the best freakin' books I've read in a long while. She's referenced by motivational/success authors & leaders I follow like Travis Bradberry and Benjamin Hardy. She writes about 'fixed mindset' - loosely defined as the notion that ability/talent is more important than effort and that you either can do something or you can't, vs. growth mindset - the understanding that effort counts more than ability and that you can learn almost anything you want, and that the joy is in the journey rather than the outcome. I have a quote on my desk from Benjamin Hardy from one of his articles this past week - "Associate with people who look like your future, not your past." That's why I've returned to the KBoards as I embark upon a new project, and hope to learn a lot - and offer a lot - from and to others.

    Nonfiction account of pioneering in the 1850s by Miriam Colt  Fascinating, but gruesome. 



    Written by Madeleine Kamman.  The memoir bits are great.

    I got a free PDF chapter 1 on their website https://triumphthroughtrialsbook.com/ then I purchased their book through Amazon.
    Inspiring and uplifting interpretation through passages.

    I set myself a more realistic goal of reading 20 books this year. So far, I've read My Husband and I by Ingrid Seward (5 stars), Charles at 70 (2 stars), Lee Child 61 hours (4 stars), and Force of Nature by Jane Harper (4 stars). Currently reading The Wanted by Robert Crais.

    I've been reading a lot of books about the American West these days.  Recent ones that I've liked:

    In the Early Days along the Overland Trail in Nebraska Territory, in 1852

    Crossing the Plains, Days of '57 A Narrative of Early Emigrant Travel to California by the Ox-team Method

    They have rather generic covers, so I've just posted links.  I thought both of these books were solidly good.  Anyone doing research about this time and place could learn a lot from these.

    Right now, I'm reading four books. I'm in a bit of an indie fantasy binge.

    Storm Glass by Jeff Wheeler

    The Silver Sorceress by Alec Hutson

    The Trial of Stone by Andy Peloquin

    The City of Light by Will Wight

    They're all very different books and quite enjoyable.
