What are you reading while the COVID-19 is here?

I'm reading "The Stand". Since Steven King tweet became a meme, I decided to see what it eased like. I like it so far.
There is The Stand book club discussion here: https://r.tapatalk.c...link_source=app

I also thought I'd start again "The Diary of Anne Frank". I've also liked this book and have read it a few times, especially in my teen years.

I like reading multiple books st once, so I'd love to hear what you're reading.

The libraries in my state are closed. They offer free ebooks and audiobooks and other things.

These 4 books by Debbie Macomber are free right now. She just posted the info today. I got mine off Amazon. I like them for light reading.

Oh. I can't upload anymore photos from talktalk
Here's the link to her Facebook post.

I'm going slow on it. I'm kind of on call for work (if there's something I can't do at home, I go in), but mostly being lazy. Didn't leave my apartment for 4 days and did very little. Crochet, phone, games on phone, TV, eating... barely reading and I love to read. Barely cleaning and whatnot.

I'm only on page 220.
