I've just finished reading 'The Tattooist of Auschwitz'. Short, well-told and a paean to human spirit. Told to the author by the protagonist shortly before he died there may have been small inaccuracies but the overall story is very good.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tattooist_of_Auschwitz

More space! I got rid of the Harry Potter series; author seeks publicity as a TERF. If you want to know about transgenders, ask them, not Joanna Rowling.

Perhaps this is a good link for you, especially if you like old books....

Do any A/N readers live in the desert? I just finished rereading the classic Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey. His "home base" is (was) Arches N.P. in Utah. Good book especially if you've been there.

I'm running out of reading material! Hope the library opens soon.

Not sure where I found the link to The Death of Grass https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/941731.The_Death_of_Grass but it's just the book to read during a pandemie....

My county library sent an email reminding people that they can borrow ebooks and e-audiobooks online. I'll also offer a special gift for my atheist friends: You can get a free copy of my ebook Polly!: A comic novel of hope and blasphemy  at https://payhip.com/b/ZFql by using coupon code F16Y4FUOHB at purchase. It's an atheist's view of god. Anyway, I wish you pleasant reading in these uncertain times!

I don't know about where you live, but all our libraries are closed indefinitely. For me, it's a real bummer. The only "silver lining" is that I've been able to go to my own personal "library" and read books I've never read before (some belonging to my deceased mother), or reread some really old books I've had forever. I'm sorta glad I've been forced to do that. Otherwise, I'm sure I would never have read them. Hope I don't run out of reading material!

Probably not many people have heard of George Bird Grinnell. If they read John Taliaferro's 500+ page biography, they'll discover who he is. The subtitle is America's Environmental Pioneer and His Restless Drive to Save the West.

Grinnell befriended the plains Indians, notably the Blackfeet. He explored what is now Glacier National Park and was mainly responsible for its preservation and designation. Several of the books' photographs shows Grinnell Glacier as it was in the late 1800's. I was there 15 years ago, and it had shrunk to nearly nothing. I pulled out my own photos to review the comparison. It's my main evidence of global warming.

Anyway, a good book.

Mayor Pete is also a veteran (who didn't fake bone spurs) and a Christian who talks honestly about his faith when appropriate. Those will carry a lot of weight with many voters.
