I’m just now reaching the point that I can focus on something for a short time without falling asleep.  This recovering from a major surgery thing is EXHAUSTING! 

I’d love to take advantage of this rare opportunity to read, but I need suggestions!

My criteria: No science fiction, No Cheesy Romance, Non Vulgar
