    "Liberty Bell 7:The Suborbital Mercury Flight of Virgil I. Grissom" by Colin Burgess---an excellent read as we approach the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission; a mission not possible without men like Grissom.

    I am reading Russell Simmons's bestseller, "Success Through Stillness." It's about the value of daily meditation for success in overall health and business. It is very down-to-earth, easy to read, and full of research and anecdotal examples that keep it real. I give it 9.

    Hard Choices by Hillary Clinton.  I find it fascinating to be reading history from her perspective.  I believe Hillary is very sincere and genuine in wanting to serve her country.  I have to read this so I know who to vote for in 2016.  I have read Obama's books and I feel he has become so cynical from his experiences as president.  He comes across to me as an altogether different person than for whom I voted.

      All of the Grafton alphabet books in the Kinsey Millstone series are good. I know--I've read the entire series. Grafton has nearly reached the end of the alphabet.

    I am a fan of Canadian writer Louse Penny's Inspector Gamache series. After reading her latest, HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN (2013), I began all over with the first, STILL LIFE, and have worked my way through this wonderful series up to A TRICK OF THE LIGHT(2011). It's no surprise that Penny's won nearly every award available and stays on the best-seller list. Gamache and her other characters are wonderful. I highly recommend the series.

      I'm glad to see so many people are reading Bill Holland's novel, RESURRECTING TOBIAS.  It's a powerful story of how choices can affect lives and a moving tribute to the redemptive powers of self-awareness and love.  Warning: His style may addict you.

    Last night I started reading "Occupational Hazard" by Elizabeth Parker. I only got through about 20 pages before going to bed, but so far it's good. I can only rate it as good because the action is just starting. If it's anything like her other novels, I'll be giving it a great review when I'm finished.

      Is that 'our' Elizabeth Parker? I've read a couple of her books about dogs which I enjoyed tremendously.   I'll have to check on it.

    Hi Jo,

    I, too, am reading Bill's novel and it is all that you have stated.  I am also reading another book sent to me by a fellow hubber and friend, "Rhinestone Jesus" and it is so inspiring.  A true story by Kristen Welch.  It really gets one thinking about whether we are settling for a shiny, pinned-on, ornamental faith or desiring that faith that is messy, bold, and courageous.

    Hi Jo, I am reading "Resurrecting Tobias" by Bill as well, and enjoying it. Definitely worth the read and a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Also "Changing Planes" by Ursula Le Guin and it is a very interesting fantasy, probably 8/10.
