Love those Alaskan stories.  They tell so much about the customs of the native people.  I was surprised that there was a strong Russian connection.  Really should have known as they are geographically close. Really read these stories for the customs rather than the plot.

Iím reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman at the moment for book club. Iím finding it a bit weird. Ghosts appearing, and very ancient history sections. I donít mind the ancient history but not too sure about the ghosts.
Before that I read Camino Island by John Grisham. I enjoyed that, it was a bit different to his usual books.

I'm now reading The Last of the Bonegilla Girls by Victoria Purman. Bonegilla was a camp where immigrants were settled until they found jobs etc. It is about 4 girls who become friends and their lives that follow. So many parallels with MIL to an extent, and a girlfriends parents. DD tells me it becomes a real tear jerker when related to MIL.

I have that K Atie. I will be interested to see what you think of it. I haven't got to reading it yet.

Iím reading Every Note Played by Lisa Genova. Itís about a concert pianist who develops Motor Neurone Disease. We lost a friend to this horrid disease about 18 months ago so it makes it even more relevant.

Do not know if I could read that one , my DM friends like 5 have passed away from MND and it is horrible. But I will put in on my ever growing list . On thing I have learnt re MND is there are two kinds , one starts at the feet is slow , the other starts at the brain and it is fast . Let's hope they find a cure or an ability for a slow down of the disease.

I didn't know that K Atie. Our friend lasted exactly 5 years. His started at his feet and moved up. Absolutely gut wrenching to see it progress.
