    Just started reading The Navy Gave Me Shoes. The first chapter on growing up in the depression should be required reading for every person under 30.

    I finished Hilary Mantel's The Mirror & The Light Friday morning. I'd read the other two Wolf Hall books about Thomas Cromwell and watched the TV series. Loved them all.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/45992709-the-mirror-the-light

    In July I read A Manifest Spirit: The 359th Fighter Group 1943-1945
    by Janet Fogg, Charlotte Baldridge, Richard Fogg, My father was a fighter pilot in the Group. If your father or mother served in WWII and you can find a book about the unit or area they were in, I recommend reading about it. Too bad my father is not here for me to ask him more about it.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35823440-a-manifest-spirit

    I read Lawrence Wright The End of October early in August. It is his pandemic novel about a flu. It starts out as being familiar to our experience and becomes dystopian.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/52669505-the-end-of-october

    I read Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration the last week in August. Very good, very long.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8171378-the-warmth-of-other-suns

    Also read James Baldwin, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19073499-the-fire-next-time in one day. It is two letters, the second one long. Short book.

    I started reading Cuba Libre!: Che, Fidel, and the Improbable Revolution That Changed World History by Tony Perrottet, Monday morning.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40062833-cuba-libre?ac=1&from_search=true&qid=ZEAlV2nrkh&rank=2

    In the intro he writes about Fidel being a welcomed guest on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. I was too young to recall (age 7). He was a bit of a folk hero among many Americans before the revolution.

    I recently finished reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Incredible book, I'm delighted.

    I read it many years ago (about 38 years).  I hate what it has been used for in the past 10 years by politicians. I did not read it in that way at the time. I will not re-read it.

    Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison

    as soon as i saw the title (before the image loaded), i was quoting the iconic line from the movie (also used in Cloud Atlas).

    i just finished Charlie Holmberg's Spellbreaker. (one of this month's kindle freebies)
