Been quite a week since my last book post. The death of Queen Elizabeth was quite a momentous event. Became a bit of a news junkie for a few days. Listening to so many talking heads, some of whom couldn't get their facts or people straight. Maybe the nerves of live TV, but basic history of a person should be correct, names of previous monarchs and dates of Elizabeth's life . (Jumps off soapbox.)
Back in 2018 on FaceBook I got challenged to list some of the recent favorites I had read. I will add them here.
Amazing read this memoir, getting inside the head of an autistic person.
The hurdles endured by a minority, getting into what is often a white only profession.
Book the movie was based on. So much detail that the movie couldn't contain. After I read the book I got the DVD to watch. Helen Mirren stars.
Nicholas Sparks is known for his fiction, but this is a non-fiction account of time he spent with his brother. I got into this when I saw my Aunt Mary reading it when I visited in 2016.
Have the tissues ready for this one. Made into a movie as well, but the book provides more detail and a sub-plot that was dropped from the movie. The author is an amateur race car driver in the same national club I belong to, Sports Car Club of America.
