    Thanks for the recommendation! I will check it out.

    My favorite is The notebook, but I don`t always have enough time to read the whole book, and sumetimes for common understanding I read summary of book or literature analysis like https://freebooksummary.com/the-note...-summary-76469

    Dan Gutman's Baseball Adventure Series, hands down. I'm an adult who, till my son started playing baseball, had no idea what the game was about and didn't care about grown men running around in large circles. Love love this series. It made me admire the heroes of baseball and taught lessons about history, character and humanity.

    Mark Twain, esp. Huckleberry Finn and Tale of Two Cities.

    David Sedaris, when he was writing about what it was like growing up American, before he became an ex-pat and too famous to be interesting.

    Charlotte's Web--every single word is perfect and in the right place. Great for reading aloud. The ending gets me every time.

    And right now, I am really enjoying Wally Lamb's I Know This Much to Be True. And publishing houses say that the public won't read a 900 page book as in the days of Anna Karenina and War and Peace. Boy, does Wally prove them wrong....

    How should we like it were stars to burn
    With a passion for us we could not return?
    If equal affection cannot be,
    Let the more loving one be me.
