A to Z Blog Challenge – Letter B
Here’s the link to participants for letter B
Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!
All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.
My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.
These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.
I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.
Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.
“Bettyville”, by George Hodgman, is his memoir of moving back home to care for his aged mother, Betty.
Betty is a force to be reckoned with, speaking her mind, and wanting everything to go her own way. She is 90 years old.
George tells his story of growing up, being gay, and dealing with his mother, from his early memories, to the present time. There’s lots of humor, and pathos recollected in this book.
My daughter gave me this book for Christmas one year, because the author was basically a local person where she lived, and the book was heavily promoted there. We both read it, and we both had differing thoughts about it. I got the feeling George and his mother didn’t really like each other, and she thought the complete opposite.
It is a very good, and interesting book, and I’d recommend it.
“bloom”, by Kelle Hampton, is a book I have not read, yet. I bought it at a book sale, a long time ago, and it has been in my to be read stack. It still seems to be an interesting book, a memoir of a family’s journey with their Down’s Syndrome child.
“The Biggest Secret”, by David Icke, is a most interesting book. I have several of his books, and all deal with what some may call ‘conspiracy theories’. I love reading about this subject, and whether there is a grain of truth in what the author has researched, is anybody’s guess.
This one has detailed information about the British Royal Family, including never before made public revelations about the death of Princess Diana. Other subjects covered are thoughts (fact or fiction?) on religion, politics, aliens, and secret societies.
Worth reading if you enjoy these types of topics.
Join the Mystery Box Chickens tomorrow, when they open the box of books with titles beginning with letter C.
