I just started, "The Red Sox Years" by Terry Francona and Dan Shaughnessy. Francona is a former Red Sox manager.

I also have the complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Both Nook books.

All set for vacation.

Yep, I persevered and read the whole book. Wow! Certainly addictive and I've just begun Fifty Shades Darker. Wonder if there'll be more than three in the series. Or if the third one ties things up like a nice package.

I just snagged the next 2 books in the Grimm Curse series for under $5 for my kindle. The original was free on pixel of ink (I think or maybe book bub) so I checked it out to make sure it was the same one I read and saw the other two. Can't wait to dig into them! I'm enjoying the Bonhoeffer book but it is heavy reading so I only get a few pages done each day. He's a remarkable man and was a classic overachiever and super intelligent. Makes me tired reading about everything he was doing during college!

Read, read....it is the best story ever and the book will not ruin your enjoyment of the movies, if nothing else you will get some of the back story and enjoy the movies more.
