    I'm currently reading and enjoying Beartown by Fredrik Backman, who wrote the delightful book A Man Called Ove.
    I thought Witch Elm was very good, but not quite excellent. It was a gradually unfolding story line rather than some sort of thriller or page burner, which is not necessarily bad. Fun characters and a mystery that was not too far out and kept me guessing. I'm glad I read it, but was not really inspired to read other things by the author.

    Finished When Breath Becomes Air last night - very sad but good insight into what doctors (and terminally ill) go through. Darn that we all have to die one way or another
    Just started Deep Creek/Finding Hope in the High Country - thoughts from a writer who lives on a ranch in the CO mountains.
    As always, piles of new cookbooks from the library.

    From the Ground Up - Howard Schultz of Starbucks fame. Interesting read. I like reading about successful people and their road to leadership.

    The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up - Marie Kondo. Nice gal, not sure I am sold on her touchy feely approach to de-cluttering. I know it would be a cold day in hell my wife would yard out all her clothing and pile on the bed and start going through it and checking for sparks of joy. I pretty much have decluttered my possessions, but nevertheless I am a de-clutter junkie so I bought the book.

    Whole - T. Colin Campbell. Another interesting read - I find it fascinating how food effects our health.
