It is very telling that all the books this month were dark. It was wearing me down so I am about to start a book of essays by an SNL star. Things have got to lighten up around here!   That said, there are some excellent reads in this list. For your consideration…   “The End of October” by...
“Bingo!” hollered my Aunt Toogie. “Beat you again!”   I had just started to read the sports page, a task that usually takes under a minute now. I was multitasking, also listening to the television behind me and keeping score on my Bingo card. I was just one square away from winning when...
