@glitterbag,
Your post reminded me of my visit to Moscow. Did you know that their subway stations are really beautiful and each one is unique? https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=pty&hsimp=yhs-pty_converter&param2=59b60d0b-7323-44a1-abc2-1f111a0429b0&param3=converter_~US~appfocus1&param4=g-ccc3-lp0-cp_1744376776-bb8-sfnt~Safari~photos+of+moscow+subway+stations+near~D41D8CD98F00B204E9800998ECF8427E&param1=20190529&p=photos+of+moscow+subway+stations+near&type=1744376776 Our tour director took us to a subway station, and took us on a short ride. I'm glad we had that experience. I think on that trip, it was a cruise on the Volga River from Moscow to St Petersburg.

World Without End, Amen by Jimmy Breslin

NYPD officer having some issues, heads to Ireland. One of the few Breslin fictionals, he usually wrote non-fiction. Written and set in the early 1970s.

Here's the Kirkus review - www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/jimmy-breslin-4/world-without-end-amen-2/


Warning: the book has liberal usage of the offensive N-word

Stephen King's The Institute. It's one of his better books.

"L'amica geniale" by Elena Ferrante. I'm at the end of tome 2, 2 more to go... It's a saga about two girl friends growing up in Napoli. The books have been a huge success in Europe and a TV series is being made out of them. There's some mystery about who the author is.

Yes it's chicklit, but it's good chicklit.

@littlek,
Right now I'm reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. This book is becoming my favorite.. lots of culture and plot twist.

Moving on to the third tome of "L'amica geniale" by Elena Ferrante.

Found this mildly interesting, if you cut through the posturing (James Joyce, really?):
