- Ubik by Philip K. Dick - TFG's book for this month. Gosh, this one is really hard to put down. When I reached half point, there's no stopping. So, I finished it last week. But habit compels me to include it here.
- Everlasting by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss - A favorite writer, and this was her last book before her early demise. The book was a gift from Maria, two Christmases ago. I just couldn't face the fact that this was KW's last book. So, I am reading this now as my way of closure.
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - A re-reading (or listening) is in order since TFG will be reading Go Set a Watchman, set on September of this year. I just purchased both audiobooks and I am good to go.
