Just fiished Aretha--From These Roots, the memoir of Aretha Franklin, of course. I enjoyed it, although regretfully it was published in 1999, 20 years ago, so her later and last years are not included. She had a rousing career and reached many pinnacles and zeniths. The books takes us along quite chronologically through her career intertwined with her love life intertwined with her family obligations, going year by year, song by song, amour by amour, etc. I enjoyed most reading about her devotion to her father, and his devotion to her, and then the tragedy of his passing left me shocked and slack-jawed because I had no idea.

An Unwanted Guest by Shari LaPena. Not my favorite.
the Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn, I didn’t like it in the first half, but am very glad I finished. I did not guess the mysteries at all, surprising to me. Well done
reading When The Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica. Only a third of the way in but a good premise.
The Wandering Jews by Joseph Roth. nonfiction. had to buy this on abebooks to get it. A much smaller book than I realized.
