    Also am reading Fiber Fueled by Dr. Will Bulsiewicz MD (gastroenterologist) MSCI (Master in Science Clinical Investigation). The gut controls the body and how to support the beneficial critters that live there. Talks about eating a variety of plants - minimum of 30 different plants a week. I have listened to several of his podcasts and he is an interesting guy. Very down to earth - just give me the facts. He changed his diet after putting on 50 lbs in medical school and now fit and healthy. Practices what he preaches.
    Gregg: I loved Ove and I also enjoyed Britt-Marie. I really liked Beartown. Beartown was much darker but a good read.

    I just finished "The Chain" by Adrian McKinty. What a great read! Deliciously evil and so hard to put down. Pure entertainment of the darker thriller type. Very likable, flawed, all-too-human characters. I think it would make a good movie.

    "The Chain" and "A Man Called Ove" both sound good. Thanks for the recommend.

    I just finished "Queen Bee" by Dorothea Benton Frank and enjoyed it quite a bit. Was saddened to find out the author just died last year. But she was very prolific, so I have lots of her old work to check out. Just started "The Book of Lost Friends" by Lisa Wingate. Pretty good so far.

    After reading another thread, I should probably mention that "The Chain" is the stuff of nightmares, especially for parents.
