The Official Zoomer Book Club

Let's talk about books. I think we have begun to lose our abilities to sit down and stay still and simply read. Maybe the "old-fashioned good book" will enrich us, help decompress our busy selves. Let's write about what we like to read about.

Dennis Moeller , I do need to read a book that keeps me going. Noticed my ipad behavior should be controlled.   Just read your comment on The Unlikely Prilgrimage... hope I can get this book during my travels.

In this bestselling and delightfully quirky debut novel from Sweden, a grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door. 

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell." But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? 

Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations. 

A feel-good story in the spirit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, Fredrik Backman's novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful and charming exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others. Aman called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Need to start back reading.  Presently reading "Never Look Away" Linwood Barclay.

I've recently been reading an autobiography of sorts about a significant silver ore heist that occurred in a small Yukon community called Elsa. I happen to live a short distance away and, although I've been here for 28 years, I'd never heard a whisper of this theft. It's a poignant book as told by the youngest daughter of the convicted geologist. She does capture something of our lives in the north. If you're interested in that sort of thing, "A Rock Fell On the Moon" by Alicia Priest is the name of book and author.

Hi Lynda - I just finished reading 'The Invention of Wings' by Sue Monk Kidd.  I enjoyed it.  You might want to try that book.

"Hi Gary: You are absolutely right. It looks like the picture of the Chaparral has been put in the picture afterwards. You are an experienced photographer, if it were so, would it be called today 'photo shopped'?? "
