   So, what have you been reading? 


  1. That is quite a list. I was taken by the seriousness/academic quality of the titles... and then I noticed "Cute Poodles, Sweet Old Ladies." What a relief!

    1. I have to break up the books on death, and health care, with something fun. I am not a fiction reader.

  2. I read michael nesmith's autobio "infinite tuesday". the man behind the monkee has had an interesting life. and he's always been my fave.
