Re: What Are You Reading June 2019?

I am really loving The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck, set during & after WWII in Germany with 3 women as the main characters. I'm about in the middle of it, but it's looking like a 10/10 for me at this point.

Just finished Ann Patchett's Bel Canto & thought it was excellent. Sort of a dream of a book. Now I'm starting another book by her - Run. I found out that she is an owner of a bookstore in Nashville. I thought that was putting your royalties in a wonderful place!
