Winter Reading from Realgoodwords

Hallie Ephron's "Never Tell A Lie" kept me glued over the weekend. It's a mystery novel telling the story of a very pregnant woman who innocently holds a yard sale. When a person she barely knew in high school shows up, everything changes. I liked that even though Ivy Rose was 8+ months pregnant, she still saves the day. Hallie will be an upcoming guest on Realgoodwords...

I'll talk with Hallie not just about "Never Tell a Lie" but about her book "1001 Books for Every Mood" suggested to me by KAXE Volunteer Joan Downham. Here's an idea of what "1001 Books for Every Mood" has in it:

Books if you are interested in taking a trip:
Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
The Atlas by William T. Vollmann
Blue Highways: A Journey into America by William Least Half-Moon
Consider the Lobster: and Other Essays by David Foster Wallace
Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert
Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tom Robbins
The Great Railway Bazaar: By Train Through Asia by Paul Theroux

I'm also reading Minnesota writers Charles Baxter's "The Soul Thief" and Julie Kramer's "Stalking Susan".
