I am reading an English mystery by Hazel Holt. I love her Mrs. Malory stories. I have read them all a few years ago and I am reading them again.

Do you have favorite books that you reread?

Oh yes, I have stacks and stacks of books that I read at least once a year. I still manage to get a new one in there, every once in a while.

In the middle of Mannahatta by Sanderson, Mayflower by Philbrick and the 2010 World Almanac (I skim every page of Ref. Books./Cook Books. Not a single CALORIE.

I love Wally Lamb. I know This Much is True is a great read as well.

Right now, I'm reading a PD James mystery and Buried Prey by John Sanford.
