Actually, I'm addicting to business or self-motivation literature due to weekly reviews on. And right now I'm embarked on bio-story "Steve Jobs" and I'd like to advise you or even ask for reading this so hard!

Just finished a biography of Louisa May Alcott. Wow! that lady had a rough life for a very long time and when she finally was financially secure she was too ill to really enjoy it. Strong woman,fighting for women's rights way back when.

Currently I am 3/4 of the way through a novel called Promise by Minrose Gwin. It is set in the pre-civil rights years, 1930's Mississippi, and chronicles the lives of whites and blacks before, during and after a catastrophic tornado. Excellent. Highly recommend it.

Another book I have read recently is Room by Emma Donoghue . I'll "cheat" & post a review from online:

"Award-winning author Emma Donoghue's latest book, Room, is a unique and amazing story about a boy's day-to-day experience living in a small, windowless room with his mother. The 11' x 11' space between the walls of the room are actually all the boy knows because he was born there and has never left. Room will horrify, surprise, sadden and ultimately delight you. Addictive from the start, readers of all sorts won't want to put Room down."


I agree with that review. It was a well-written book, although about a disturbing subject, that held me the entire way. I especially admired the mother of the boy for her unique ways of providing exercise, entertainment, & education with what was at her disposal in the small confines of the room.
