    I'll have to look for this one. I am completely fascinated by the inability of we human beings to communicate effectively with one another.

    I am still working my way through Stephen King's It.

    Hell of a book!

    My mom is reading Under The Dome. We both happened to have the same favorite character -- Piper Libby!

    I put the longer version of The Stand on my nook and just read it, again. Epic, pretty much any Stephen King will keep me happy

    I borrowed it from my local library. It should be out there. Alda has put a lot of effort in promoting real communication. However I have given up. Technology has made it a lot worse.

    I looked for Natural Causes recommended on another thread here but it was checked out so instead I got I Am I Am I Am about near death experiences and three novels: Ill Will by Chaon, The Locals by Dee and Absolute Darling by Tallent.

    Moral Politics by George Lakoff

    "...the challenge in contemporary America is to create a nurturant society, when a significant portion of that society has been raised by authoritarian or neglectful parents."

    An Atheist in Heaven: The Ultimate Evidence for Life After Death? by Paul Davids and Gary Schwartz--a tale of what happens when your quirky atheist friend who doesn't believe in an afterlife tells you before his death that if his soul should live on "I'll drop you a line." Non-fiction.

    A couple of Sarah Orne Jewett stories. Her house is open to the public and I am contemplating a visit there when the weather is nicer.
