          ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

          I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

            Hi Lynne K I'm only a few pages in however I think it will be a page turner. It caused some controversy in the states as an Oprah book club book. (According to good old google)

            Others have read further and so far so good. 😘

                  I bought the paperback version of American Dirt this morning for Β£6. Kindle is my preferred but it was Β£4.99 and for a pound more Steve can read it too if he feels like. It’ll arrive tomorrow from Amazon. Lynne x

                      Can't put this book down...its lovely to be engrossed in a book πŸ™‚

                      Many years ago I had a boyfriend ( who i later married !) who hid a book I couldn't put down. He wanted me to get ready for some boring works dinner and I couldn't stop reading. Of course there was a stand off as I wanted my book back before I'd get ready.. Don't know how we're still married πŸ˜‚

                      Happy reading! πŸ“– πŸΈπŸ™‚β˜€οΈ

                        I was having a go. Being shot at in the loo got me. Wow what a start but the YouTube version is rather odd so I gave up.

                        I am listening to where the crawdads sing. So far brilliant.
                        when i can think of something profound i will update this.

                              Glad you're enjoying it Lynne.

                              I also found it riveting and spent most of the day out in the sun, headphones on, enthralled - I've finished it πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
