Tea & Books - What are you reading?
I also just bought the Science of Yoga by William J. Broad, a must for any Yogi out there. That doesn’t even count the fiction books I’m in the middle of, but can’t seem to finish.
I prefer non-fiction because I can read non-fiction faster.
Three different biographies about Cleopatra VII.
A book on child language acquisition. Non-fiction FTW.
Working my way through a wonderfully Sherlockian series by Will Thomas set in Victorian London. “Some Danger Involved” is the first; a young clerk just sprung from prison begins his apprenticeship with an enquiry agent. They traipse to and through London underworld, street arabs, Chinese mafia, secret societies, and illegal bare-knuckle prizefights. Book #5 (The Black Hand) was a cliffhanger and I have been waiting nearly three years for the next installment. Author resides in Oklahoma; I was deeply tempted to drive to his house, bang on the door, and beg him to hurry!
A friend loaned me “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” by Kate DiCamillo (author of the Tale of Despereux) It’s a children’s book that’ll take you less than an hour to read, but it will be one of the best yours you have spent in a long time!
Edward is an elegant china rabbit with a very high opinion of himself. Said opinion, after his experiences with a shipwreck, as a hobo bunny, and as the friend of a dying child, changes drastically. Have Kleenex handy.
At the moment, I’ve been reading “From Sawdust to Stardust”, a biography on DeForest Kelley.
I still like Star Trek, but I’m no longer a Trekkie. I am excited about the new mini-series by NBC that is coming out sometime this year. Live long and prosper.
I really like your bio. I thought I was the only one who sometimes put agave nectar in tea. I’m following you now. :)
