    Just finished The Dispossessed by Ursula K. LeGuin. Older book, but amazingly relevant in a lot of ways.

    Genius of Women by Janice Kaplan is very informative.

    Nothing good. Ordered a book by Sheila Weller, whom I like, but it never came, so ordered it again.

    Just finished today, "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman. I found it a good read. I can totally relate to the main character's grumpiness! Yet in his own way Ove was full love and compassion. I am looking forward to reading more of Fredrik Backman's books. Of those who have read his books, which would you recommend to read next?

    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.

    I loved A Man Called Ove and thought that Brit-Marie Was Here was a good one too, I enjoyed the touch of kindness with which the protagonists lives were described and humour. I can recommend Anxieties and Their People too even though I found it slightly different in style. It was hilarious and well ... kind in Backman's way too.

    Edit. Sorry, just found out that the last book is probably not available in English yet and will be called Anxious People.
