    I am reading Into Thin Air by Jon Krackow about the ascent of Mt Everest in the 1990's in which many of the participants died. Not the sort of book I would ordinarily choose, but it was chosen for me by a member of my book club. I have surprised myself by "enjoying" the book, contemplating the folk who are driven to do these kinds of expeditions. Interesting, & glad I have read it & not a book I would ever choose myself.

    Have been reading Becoming Supernatural by Joe Dispenza. Am actually doing a book study with friends because we found it so interesting we wanted to share. As a retired special education teacher working with behaviorally challenged students, I always found the workings of the brain fascinating.

    I'm finishing off an highlander book which I got half way through ages ago after hunting on Amazon for a good hour, then found one in my listings and purchased it...so i'll look forward to reading this book.

    "Beer O'Clock" by Jane Peyton

    It is a good primer on beer history, culture and craft.

    Yes they have to be but I really love Kathryn Le Veques books because the history behind them is great.

    I'll look that book up your reading tomorrow :)

    Oh, there are so many recognizable things for me in this.

    The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. It is making me feel guilty about culling the hardwoods at our family farm.
