Just started reading My Dad, Yogi, a book about life with one of my favorite philosophers, Yogi Berra, by his son Dale Berra.

That should be a fun read! Yogi definitely had personality in abundance.

Know what I'm reading? TV listings. I got an Android box and this non-TV-watcher (me!) is glued to the tube. The love will fade soon enough, I'm sure, and I'll crave a book.

I'm reading Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. It is just OK. I'll finish it because it is a skinny book, but I'm wallowing in not much happening.

Already thinking about what I'll read next....

Yes, I'd read a few books by Yogi some years ago and he was always entertaining but I think what impressed be more than anything else, from his books and what I read elsewhere, is it seems it can honestly be said about him that he was a better man than he was a baseball player, and he was a Hall of Fame baseball player!


His son's viewpoint's a little different, I never knew he'd had a cocaine problem in the past and my first impression from the book is what I'd expect from Yogi, he never gave up on his son. So far I'm enjoying it.

Keep enjoying!

As to the cocaine problem: "We made too many wrong mistakes."

Just finished Sleeping Beauties by Stephen & Owen King; it was an interesting sci-fi vision of a world exploring the value of the two genders.

Just started the Planetfall series by Emma Newman.
