My husband mentioned tonight that he and Mouse were talking tonight about the new book that popped up on my husband's Kindle. "Your mom is buying e-books again that she already owns." I had to correct him, of course. I don't actually own the hardcover copy I am reading right now. It's from my Going Postal mail group. And honestly, I don't do it that often. It gets expensive! I just thought maybe I might get more reading done if I could read it on my phone or Kindle, especially since I had a deadline. Besides, it's a book worth owning.
At the moment I am reading The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez, and enjoying it quite a bit. (The book photo will take you to the book's Goodreads page.)

"I have two boys," she said. "Both of them were born there, Enrique, my oldest is always at college on a soccer scholarship. And there's Mayor, who you met. He's nothing at all like his brother. Rafa thinks we might have taken the wrong baby home from the hospital." She forced a smile. "Just a joke, of course." [pg 56]
