As a birthday reading gift to myself this month, I decided to reread one of my favorite novels — “A Woman of Substance” by Barbara Taylor Bradford.

As I’ve done for the past few years, I attended the Rescue Mission’s book sale at the Sunset Plaza. I always buy books there, naturally, but this year I left with a little, old book that made me especially happy. It was “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” by Ian Fleming.

I’ve just returned from a road trip to Boston with my daughter. The few days we were there were packed with a lot of cultural and literary adventures. Here are highlights from the main literary ones.

Recently, two different people recommended Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods” to me as a book worthy both of my reading time and of my focus for a column. I took their advice and thoroughly enjoyed the book. Its subtitle is “Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail.”

Ann Patchett’s novel, “Bel Canto,” is most certainly based upon a hostage situation that took place in Peru, beginning on Dec. 17, 1996 and ending 126 days later when the terrorists were all killed.

I’m a member of a few online reading groups where I share recommendations and the occasional comment about books with other reading aficionados.

Even though “So Big” by Edna Ferber was published and won the Pulitzer for fiction 95 years ago, its content and themes are still thoroughly relatable today.
