Currently reading and enjoying "Still Life with Breadcrumbs" by Anna Quindlen. It's a light read, but beautifully observed and written.

Just read about Antoine de Saint-Exupery in David McCullough's Brave Companions: Portraits in History.

I am two-thirds of the way through Wanderings by Chaim Potok. It is this fiction writer's one non-fiction book.

Is that a new McCullough? Wasn't aware of it and I've read or have cued up most of his books.

I read My Name is Asher and The Chosen in my 20's. I bought used Davita's Harp years ago, but still not read.

The Girl Before, JP Delaney is the book I'm reading, and Eligible is the audio book, which is a retelling of Pride & Prejudice in modern times.

I finished The Lawgiver by Herman Wouk. Written when he was 94 years old and his second to last book, it is a fun read for a Wouk fan as it contains some subtle references to earlier works and characters. His wife passed away while he was writing it and the final page contains the sweetest words about their love story and 63 year marriage. Sigh...
