this is a great thread. The last few books I've read have been suggested here. I keep looking back here every time I'm ready for new read. Right now finishing up "The Wave" as suggested up thread. Thanks everybody.

Page 643 - at last the final one - ends with "yes" in James Joyce's Ulysses. Finished it. YES!

Vanished, by Wil S. Hylton, which I reviewed for the Wall Street Journal yesterday. Good book.

I can't link you directly to the review, you'll catch the WSJ paywall if I do, but I think I can link you to a google search, and by clicking the top link you'll get past the paywall to the full text of the review.

Here's the search that should do it.

And yes, I'm a bit miffed that they spelled my name wrong. Also, Ghoulwe gets a tip of the hat for some hilarious fact checking on this one.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

The story takes place in Alaska in 1920. Its a novel about a couple homesteading and discover a mysterious little girl who calls herself Faina. She is mysterious and appears after the couple create a little snow girl that they decorate with mittens and a scarf. She is a child of the woods and was inspired by a classic Russian fairy tale of a snow maiden.

I am half done with it and I find it hard to put down.

Russ Walling...I read Storming Heaven, it was good. I would also recommend "Breaking Open the Head" by Daniel Pinchbeck, along that same topic.

Finished Fences where Death of a Salesman meets Jim Crow. I see how August Wilson won the Pulitzer for it. Excellent!

Moving on to Tina Howe's Painting Churches.
