Goodbye, Things
Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minima... Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism - Fumio Sasaki

I am not a minimalist at all. You know Howl's bedroom from Howl's Moving Castle? That's more my aesthetic. But I like reading about people who make minimalism work for them. I don't remember the book that well, but the impression I have is that minimalism made Sasaki happy, and he wants to share that with people (but not in a pushy, obnoxious, holier-than-thou type of way).

Opening up a Pandora's box of secrets
The Goodbye Look - Ross Macdonald

This was my first Ross Macdonald novel, and it's definitely not going to be my last. The plot was amazing, with Macdonald's merciful detective Lew Archer called in to investigate the theft of a gold box and the letters contained. What followed was an intricate tale of decades-old crimes, long-buried secrets, and innocent people caught in between. I finished the book with an appreciation for Macdonald's under-appreciated talent, one that deserves as wide an audience today as it had back in his own life.

A married couple take an emotional journey.
Before We Say Goodbye - JN Welsh

Wow, this one kept me on a roller coaster of emotions. Olive and Nigel have been married for 15 years, and life has happened to them. Both of them have lost sight of why they got married and lost their way. As they journeyed into their past, I cried and laughed along with them. The author did a wonderful job getting across the feelings of two people trying to find their way back to happiness. I recommend this story.

I received a copy of the story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

He's Gone

He passed away this morning at home. We are thankful we did not have to drag him to the vet to be put down. He hated the vet and since he couldn't move on his own, any forced movement would have been beyond painful. As far as I'm being told by my mom, his passing seemed peaceful.

Thanks to everyone who offered me kind words and virtual hugs. This is a really wonderful community. I'm only a small fry here but those who do interact with me on here have been so nice.

 

[This is my last time seeing him, on Saturday. <3 Go sweet boy, run in puppy Heaven.]
