April 2017 Reading Round Up

Last month I read 7 books, 3 fiction and 4 nonfiction. My reading slowed down a bit for this month because it takes me longer to read nonfiction. My brain likes to absorb the facts and information and sometimes I take notes from the books I read. So it takes more time to get through them.

I enjoyed two fiction books very much, the first was a new one by Rhys Bowen, In Farleigh Field, a WWII story. The other was a new one by Mary Higgins Clark, All By Myself, Alone; which was a contemporary mystery on a cruise ship.

Fiction titles I read for April:

In Farleigh Field: A Novel of World War II       Extracurricular Activities (A Murder 101 Mystery, #2)

 

All By Myself, Alone

The nonfiction titles I read in April:

The Other Einstein                The Bulletproof Diet: Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life

Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling      Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose

The Other Einstein was a library book club pick, and though I never would have picked to read it, I found it interesting and eye opening about how Einstein treated his first wife who was brilliant, maybe smarter than he was. But because she was a woman, she wasn’t listened to.

I am also interested in how and why certain foods and actions affect our bodies. There is so much information about food and nutrition and the better way to eat today, it boggles the mind. If I learn anything worthwhile, I’ll let you know. 🙂

That wraps up my reading for last month.

Happy reading!
