I enjoy reading for the absolute joy of it and am always on the lookout for a great new read. Most interested in fiction and great storytelling. I also enjoy books on cooking, yoga and philosophy.

A Visit from the Goon Squad

A Visit from the Goon Squad - Jennifer Egan A very enjoyable read although the last chapter was a bit of a chore. Because it is neither a true novel nor a collection of short stories but rather a series of interconnected stories in which characters reoccur, intertwine and influence the events and themes of disconnectedness in past, present and future, the premise can be sometimes confusing.
