I need a good book, well-written, thoughtful, engaging, with a bit of mystery to it and perhaps some ghosts - but not a la M.R. James, Sheridan Le Fanu. And it needs to be on Kindle as I seek immediate gratification. Any thoughts. I am desperate. I have read nothing but junk for almost a year.
I have read it. I liked it, but it is a bit too decadent for my present frame of mind.
I have sixteen goats including four new goat kids and four more does expecting. And I am training a very young puppy who is destined to be a herd dog. So not junk, but not too heavy either.
Also more company on the way. I have had almost a month of house guests (not the same ones) since 2013 began (it is 2013 isn't it?). A party tonight at my house and I am not feeling up to it.
Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't Ur do something like this once a year, post something that requires suggestions that are never good enough? What does it all mean?
It means I am tired, exasperated, and desperately want you and your family to come to Tennessee. Company I really want :-) And I really could use a good book. I need to be jerked out of the mindless tedium of junk reading back into good reading.
Good, as long as it means your not over-goated.
Our opportunity to visit this year has passed. Money. But I actually have mentioned the trip to my ex-wife in Chattanooga...so we ARE coming.
Probably not on kindle but The Belgian School of the Bizarre
is strange and excellent.
Does it have to be on Earth? If not, Terry Pratchett's books might work. I don't remember any ghosts but there is often a crime story in them, and who needs ghosts when you can have DEATH as a character?
Vous avez dit bizarre ?

you should read Decadence Mandchoue by Edmund Backhouse.
