Me: The books I’ve recently finished are mostly already reviewed here. My books-in-progress include The Eye of the Elephant: An Epic Adventure in the African Wilderness by Delia and Mark Owens, The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy, Churchill’s Secret Agent by Max and Linda Ciampoli, and Island of the World by Michael D. O’Brien. Yes, I am reading all of those books at the same time.
We’re a fairly eclectic family, wouldn’t you say?
