    I'm reading this forum.

    Was that a trick question?

    I just read two books.

    "Dark Matter" It's an interesting fictional exploration of a multiverse. Have you ever wondered what might have been had you made a different choice sometime in your life? What if you could explore how different your life would have turned out if you had just done something a little different. Fascinating.

    "Station Eleven" An interesting twist on the epidemic wipeout of the human race and what happens afterward. The difference is the writer switches back and forth between the before and after developing characters that had an impact on both sides of the disaster and also on characters that exist only in the before or only in the after.

    Too many good books to choose a "best". One that has stayed with me over the years is "The Robe" by Lloyd C. Douglas

    Jenny apparently has no fear of divulging her number on this forum. Although, it was probably hacked from the bathroom wall.

    Best I Ever Read: Non-Fiction: Seabiscuit . Fiction: The Great Gatsby

    Agree, I can't do "favorite" or "best" on pretty much any topic anymore. Too many good options.

    I liked "Dark Matter." Check out "Recursion" by the same author.

    Ah, yes, that sounds familiar.
