What I read:

I decided to read Myra’s suggestion: “As Good as Gone” by Larry Watson. I’m about two thirds done. After an amazing beginning, I’m starting to feel like something should be happening by now. So I’m going to go ahead and give it 4 of 5 stars. Although I wish the story would come together a bit more, it has great writing and great characters, so Thank You Myra! Also note, this book is set in 1963, the year in which I was born!
