    Sounds interesting, Jane. What's your take on it?

    I'm only a quarter of the way through. It's interesting in the way that a string of odd and inexplicable events can suggest something without actually proving it--even with spectometric tests going on. The subject of the book was a colorful character indeed.

    I have a working belief in life after death, combined with a certain skepticism. I have little to lose if there's just a void after this life, but I would like to be reunited with loved ones. And I'll miss the hell out of this material world.

    Well-researched books on reincarnation are the most convincing proof to me of life after death. Soul Survivor and Looking for Carroll Beckwith are both thought-provoking.

    I am currently reading The Immortalists. This is truly fiction at its finest.

    I just finished Democracy in Chains by Nancy MacLean. It was excellent.

    I just finished re reading West with the Night by Beryl Markham. Lyrical. She was the first person to fly nonstop from Europe to North America. The main story is her life in Africa, Kenya mainly. She was an interesting person.

    Flight of the Sparrow: A Novel of Early America, Novel by Amy Belding Brown

    Excellent read. It's placed in the early days on the east coast when Native Americans were fighting with settlers.

    Solo by Kwame Alexander with mary Rand Hess. It's lyrical, free verse story of a young man coping with a change in his world. After reading it -quickly and late into the night as I could not put it down- I sat holding it on my lap, sorry to see the end of it. I cannot think of a book that has affected me this way. I'm going to check out his other books. It is Young Adult, but magnificent.
