    Really enjoying The Geography of Bliss. Author visits different countries to see what their "happiness" levels are. Lots of humor to level out facts.

    I"m still on Not That Bad, eerie timing with Blasey Ford in the news.

    I also started autobiographies by Lee Smith and Mirta Ojito and Small Victories by Anne Lamott.

    I'm listening to Barbara Ehrenreich's Natural Causes. The narrator (picture a humorless schoolmarm) annoys me, but Ehrenreich's view of medical care mirrors mine exactly. I'm thankful that, like Ehrenreich, I'm old enough to die unbothered by all the medical meddling that is de rigueur these days.

    "I refuse to accept a medicalized life." sums up Ehrenreich's position.
