"Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives" by Gretchen Rubin (2015),
who I first heard of from her blog The Happiness Project.

Friend of mine had been reading this book, but ran out of steam (despite liking it) and got distracted.
I had the bright idea to say: let's return it to the library and I'll check it out for 2 weeks.
Then when I return it (after reading & taking notes on it),
you can take it out again and maybe finish it, once you have more time & attention.

I really need to get reading again. I am so bad about wasting time on the laptop and watching tv. It was great being on vacation at the pool because I read, read, and then read a bit more.

I just finished " The Aviators wife " by Melanie Benjamin . I must say what a creep Charles lindberg was . I mean really and to come to find out he was sort of pro Nazi goodness .I say anne morrow lindberg was a saint to put up with such a narcissitic arsehole as CL was . It was also interesting to find out that General Norman Schwartzkoph 's father was an important law man and was on this kidnapping case . All in all it was an interesting and good book and I whole heartedly recommend it to any one who wants to read it and it gave me a whole new insight to the Lindbergs and what they went through . May Anne morrow be reunited in death with her baby Charles jr who was kidnapped and murdered .

Have you read Plot Against America by Philip Roth? I have that on my list along with The Aviator's Wife. Roth's book casts Lindbergh as POTUS.

I didn't like it much either.

I'm now reading Leaving Blythe River by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
