    None of last week's books grabbed me. This week at the library I picked up The Far Away Brothers and 50 States, 5000 Ideas and The World Atlas of Street Fashion.

    I have moved on to the topic of dementia.

    Nearly finished Susan and John McFadden's Aging Together which gets to grips with how communities abandon people as they "go down the dementia road"... and makes strong recommendations to family/friends and religious congregations.
    On deck:
    Mace and Robins, The 36-Hour Day
    Basting, Forget Memory
    Kessler, Dancing with Rose

    Did you read "Still Alice?" That was good and the film was good as well.

    This is a novel and I don't know if you read novels, but this tells the story of a woman with early onset dementia. She is a college professor. It is a very moving book.
