Can't stop listening to Jacqueline Winspear's book about Maisie Dobbs. Sometime, months ago, I listened to the first two ones: "Maisie Doobs" and "Birds of a feather", liked them a lot but then I did other things, listened to other books - and then I forgot about Maisie!

I confess! Haven't been reading much lately. Finished "Educated" by Tara Westower. Super-good! Finished "The Timetravelers Wife" by Audrey Nieffenegger. One of my favorites!
