I just finished Close Enough To Touch by Colleen Oakley. The main character has a very rare allergy to human touch. Albeit a bit predictable, I enjoyed it and plan to check out her book, Before I Go.

I read a book that was free at the time.. The Weight of Happiness: On Food, Body and Spirit by Ayelet Kalter, who is a dietician in Israel.

She used one case that went on a couple of years.. It was odd, but interesting, partly the interest was over different names and foods. No giant insights, but illustrated the complex reasons why it is often difficult to maintain a healthy weight.. In the case of the woman she met with even pushing into diabetes along with hypertension and physical pain and limitations. Also lots of kg references of course.

Just going to start a novel, Lily and the Octopus@ 🐙 about a gay man whose main companion is Lily the dachshund. They can talk to each other. The Octopus is a tumor in Lily's head.

Sounds sad, but sweet.. We will see.

Sea, I liked it in the beginning too but it takes some weird turns and lost me.

Look forward to hearing your opinion Seamonkey.

The only reason I finished it was because I had surgery andcouldn't get to the library. I recall there were a few of us here @TVClubhouse who didn't care for the book.

I read some of Lily and the Octopus (in a bookstore by accident while I was waiting for someone). You know all too well how I'm not generally a fan of sad books but I found what I read was quite quirky and enjoyable. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it as well.

LOL.. by accident?

So far it is quirky and one might thing the guy is seeing thing.. definitely hearing things.

I do have friends who use pet psychics to find out what their pets want in some situations and.. I'm not judging.. if they can make a choice I'm all for it.

But we will see how it goes.

I often like different books than most posters but I also often agree on many books as well.

I'm almost afraid for this one to totally fall apart.

I'm definitely in the "thumbs down" camp about Lily and the Octopus. I just didn't get it.

Last night I finished American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst by Jeffrey Toobin. Exhaustively researched and excellently written. I had no idea how involved her crimes were. She is one lucky lady to have escaped a far more severe prison sentence. Mr. Toobin also wrote the book upon which "The People vs. OJ Simpson" TV series was based. I won't be surprised if we someday see a similar adaptation about the whole Patty Hearst saga -- absolutely fascinating.

That was a really fascinating case, for sure.

I'm lazy, but I want to thank whoever recommended Barclay. I'm reading The Accident and thoroughly enjoying it. As an English major, though, this line was PERFECT (and exactly sums up my feelings about Melville): "That f*c*ing whale. I never did finish that book."

I suspected you, Uncle Ricky! However, I might not be so thrilled with you tomorrow when I've had no sleep because I've stayed up all night to finish this book! LOL
