    Two books related to politics: Jill Wine-Banks The Watergate Girl, a memoir of her role as a prosecutor at the Watergate hearings. It brought back memories of being transfixed by the audio, back in a more innocent time when the rule of law still mattered. And Mary Trump, PhD's Too Much and Never Enough, a treatment of Trump's many psychological quirks by someone who's doubly qualified to comment on them, being both a family member and a trained psychologist.

    I don't remember if I mentioned these before, but the Fairacre series by Miss Read is fabulous. It's about a teacher in a small English village. She wrote from the mid-50s into the mid-90s or so. There are a bunch about the neighboring village of Thrush Green. Gentle, charming, no vulgar language. Just the perfect escape for these days.

    Has anyone read "Sophie's Choice?" I always wanted to read it and I am currently in the process. I'm finding it slow going, but it's good stuff. I have no intention of abandoning it, but I keep hoping I'll get swept up into the current of the story soon.

    I think I remember someone here reading Educated? I just saw a friend post about it on FB, and it looks good--along the lines of Hillbilly Elegy, which I loved.

    Anyone read it? If so, would you recommend?
