    Linda, when a book has quite a few characters I make list of them and carry it around with me along with the book. Some books have so many people that my list runs to several pages. I jot down their names and a few facts about them.

    Thanks for the good suggestion. I used to say names out loud or maybe I thought it out Loud?! That’s how I easily read Russian novels with ease. I am just frazzled with many obligations and not enough time for me.

    I am starting We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates. Page 7. So far, very good. Taking a break from mystery novels.

    I'm getting into Outline by Rachel Cusk. It's holding my attention but I can't say much about it yet except that so far it doesn't seem likely to have an actual plot.

    Read Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris, at IVIG today. Very simplistic. Writing is not well developed. I really don’t get a sense of the characters.

    Do you mean the book title? It really is a novel called Outline, and it really doesn't have much of a plot. No joking. But come to think of it, a book with the title Outline probably shouldn't be expected to have much of a plot.

    After finishing Comey's book, which I have not done a review on here yet, but will, I then read what I call a kind of "nothing" book where you do not have to think.

    Today, has been a drab day so I started reading the book that my book club dropped off to me. They are reading it this month. It is The Residence and tells all about the staff of servants that the White House has. Most are so proud to work there, but then this book was written before current resident went there. However, they are just proud of the house they run and keep. Some become close to certain Presidents or members of their family and are emotional when they leave, but then they go on to the next people that come in. I am just getting started and the print is so small that it makes it difficult to read. One reason I enjoy a Kindle so much.

    Virginia, it sounds as if the White House staff stays on even when the administration changes. That must give those people a very different perspective on the Presidency. They must be keenly aware that the people living there are just temporary residents. They have a 4-year lease, possibly renewable for 4 more years, I guess.

    I just started “Wicked” for my book club selection. I was surprised by the colorful and imaginative first 4 pages! I think I will enjoy spending time in this OZ with Dorothy being described as a leader, a Mighty Girl. Hope it continues being entertaining.

    I was loving your droll comment, “except that so far it doesn't seem likely to have an actual plot.”
