#31- 35

#31. “The Gunslinger” by Stephen King
I can't believe I hadn't read this sooner. Roland is such a compelling character even though he gives so little away. I'm hooked!:)

#32. “The Pinkerton Casebook” ed. Bruce Durie
Really interesting, Like a real life Sherlock Holmes. It's amazing to think how many practices started with the pinkerton men.

#33. “The Drawing of the 3” by Stephen King
Also amazing, can't wait to read the rest.

#34. “The Power and the Glory” by Graeme Greene
Couldn't put this down. This story should be depressing but its not. It's so much more than that, by a deliberate lack of feeling throughout it makes it more powerful. Recommended

#35. "The Joy Luck Club" by Amy Tan.
I love this book. It has some amazing stories. I love the format. 4 mothers, 4 daughters, each of their stories reveals a new perspective not only on their relationships but also of being an immigrant. Brilliant.
