Blessings my friends and thank you so very much for taking time to stop by, I always appreciate your visits.

This week I have a very simple question, “What are you currently reading or listening to and would you recommend it to others?” If yes, please briefly tell us why…..

Thank you so very much! As always, I look forward to all the amazing responses and this time I will be making a list of all of your (hopefully) recommendations.

  1. Currently reading Demonic Indemnity which is by Craig McLay. About the first human to work in the investigative side of paranormal insurance claims. So far it is very interesting. First time I have read a book by him. I did get free through the Freebooksy site. How I have found new authors. Get first for free and then I buy the rest lol. Have an great day πŸ™‚

  2. With my blogging and family, I don’t get time to read that I want. I have a Louise Penny book that I recently bought sitting for me too read, but I don’t know when I’ll get to it. It is detective fiction and the writer is really good

  3. I am presently reading “The Wisdom of Wilderness” by Gerald G. May. The author wrote this book in the final year of life and it is chockful of wisdom and beautiful poetic writing. I am enjoying it immensely and would highly recommend it.

    From the back cover:
    “May was a great soul who taught us to be present in the world and to notice things in their mystery. This book is clear, funny, direct, and unpretentious.” – Alan Jones

    I couldn’t have said it nay better than that. I enjoy books on spirituality that don’t preach at me. This is definitely one of them.

  4. I am nearly finished with Irish writer Tana French’s newest “The Searcher.” Her last book before that was pretty dark, but this one is less so but equally engaging. I just finished a very funny Swedish book “Anxious People” by Fredrik Backman. I have read all of his quirky books and they always cheer me.

  6. I just “discovered” Roseanna M. White this year. I got the first of her Shadows over England series set in WWI, loved it, and immediately bought the next two. It’s about a group of young people who had been orphaned or abandoned and became “street kids.” They found each other and bonded together in a makeshift family and took in new ones as they found them. They supported themselves by pickpocketing, but never stole from anyone who was poor. One of them gets a job from a mysterious Mr. V, who has some nebulous tie with the government. He wants her to spy on a man of German descent and discover evidence that he has ties to Germany and is disloyal to the king. In the meantime, she discovers her “mark” is a Christian. I loved the story, the characters, and the fact that the author is unafraid to deal openly with Christian issues. So much Christian fiction has become just clean fiction with maybe a couple of subtle suggestions about faith or prayer. I’ve always felt that Christian characters should act like Christians in books. The first book is A Name Unknown (review here:https://barbaraleeharper.com/2020/10/01/book-review-a-name-unknown/), the second, A Song Unheard, the third, An Hour Unspent.

    In nonfiction, I am reading In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character by Jen Wilkin. I’ve loved everything I have read of hers and learned from it.

  7. The cancer whisperer by Sophie Sabbage and the cancer Olympics by Robin McGee both on audible both read by the author which brings a different life to their powerful words. I have metastatic cancer so the intersections are fairly obvious but anyone should listen to these stories.

  8. Currently reading Bill Bryson’s enormous tome The Body. A veritable mine of information if you’re a popular science nut (which I am!). I’ve been reading and laughing at Bill’s brilliant books for as long as I can remember. (His companion piece A Short History of Nearly Everything is another one I’d recommend).

  9. Great question – It’s interesting to see what people are reading!
    I’m still shoulder-deep in American crime thrillers. It’s an obsession. I’ve got a few Greg Iles books at the moment but the other excellent author I read last was David Baldacci, any in the Maxwell & King series. Nothing like a good book, snuggled up with a blankie and cuppa tea!
