Quiddler Card Game by Set Games
Quiddler Card Game

I just learned to play this game. It really is a cross between Scrabble and Phase 10 so to speak. It's fun challenging I can't wait to find the Deluxe version. I am looking for it right now, but had to give this game a thumbs up. I'm not a great word game person. I find it fun. Depending on the level of your co-players you may be behind in points but you will have fun anyway. I did.

The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie Ofarrell
The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox

After reading this book for a book club I was amazed at the response. It has become one of our favorite books. The writing and style is intriguing. At a time when many are looking at finding residency for their elders and family members this is a odd reaction.
How would you feel if suddenly you were told that you had an Aunt, no one ever told you about, that was alive and had been living a an asylum? Then to find out that there is a very disturbing reason she was put there. She wanted more than what society demanded of a woman in those days. To step out of the rut, to buck the system and fight for your right as a woman was intolerable and she was sent to an asylum.
That of course is not the end of the story. As you are transported between the present and the past you cannot put the book down. It gains momentum and the short tale leaves you in an animated state of wanting to share your thoughts.
It isn't a long book but it is one that will be passed along to your fellow reading friends.
