I am a reader and book evangelist. For many years I have kept a reading journal with little descriptions of the books I read and dates I read them. Kind of a trail of book bread crumbs that chart my interests over a given course of time. This blog gives me a way to continue my journal and share my reading interests with others. My latest adventures in creating, dining, and traveling can be found at my website LindasOtherLife.com

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
This book kept me reading on a recent weekend trip to Massachusetts. Started reading it when our flight out to Cleveland was delayed and finished reading it at my favorite bookstore (see related post - The Montague Book Mill). This slim novel attracted my attention as a Man Booker nominated title. The central character, Tony Webster, is a college lad as the novel opens and reflects on his life 40 years later at the book's end. It is a story of love lost, redemption and various faces closure wears in our lives.
