This is Chuck Thrawley. I'm reading Robert Coover's Going for a beer : selected short fictions. It is a collection of work throughout the career of one of the writers who redefined fiction writing from the sixties on.

Downsizing which is about paring down what you have and keeping what you really need. But if you want to know how to do that you will have to read it.

This is Cassie Jones, I’m still chugging along with Jodi Picoult’s The Storyteller. Our book club discussion is a week from today. Hoping to be finished with this and a good ways in to something new by then!

I’m reading The Storm Runner by JC Cervantes. It’s a new book in the “Rick Riordan presents” series with a focus on Mayan mythology.

I’m listening to Fledgling by Octavia Butler. I’m not normally into vampire books but this one is really captivating. The vampires might actually be aliens, and they’re not evil. Octavia Butler is such an amazing storyteller!

I'm reading Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout. Like most of Strout's books (she also wrote Olive Kitteridge) her focus is on uniquely telling a story through the lens of characters who are really just trying to figure themselves out. The story lines may seem simple at first glance, but her character's inner dialogues are quite rich. So far, so good!

Just started The Sixth Day by Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison. It is a thriller about drones being used to assinate and high tech ransom. It is one of her Brit in the FBI series.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Think a YA Fantasy version of The Italian Job.

I just finished The Exiles Return by Elisabeth De Waal. This novel follows the lives of several individuals returning to Vienna after WW II as the city rebuilds. I was interested to learn that the author was herself born in Vienna and that the novel was not published until after her death. `Julie
