The Lost Art of Gratitude, by Alexander McCall Smith. His works are a nice break - from everything!

A friend gave me the "House of Cards" by William Cohan yesterday. So far it is an eye opener.

Yesterday bought and read a graphic book called French Milk by Lucy Knisley. In cartoon and text tells about some weeks spent in Paris with her mother. A bit like: I bought this, I ate this, I saw this, but entertaining enough.

Am just about half-way through the "Earth's Children" series of books by Jean M. Auel. Taking my time with them because I am thoroughly enjoying the tale. Did notice in reading the flap of the fifth book that she was supposed to be working on a sixth one? Does anyone know if she finished it? I haven't been able to find anything pertaining to it.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks came out in February. I just bought it a few weeks ago.
