    "Why We Sleep" by Matthew Walker. What modern science says about what happens when we sleep and how it is an integral part of our biological function. Written by a scientist who has studied sleep as his life's work for decades. Totally accessible as well as entertaining. Fascinating.

    I skimmed through Dopesick by Beth Macy.

    I have followed the court case with Pharma, seen directly the impact on individuals and communities and the anguish of families dealing with this horrible disease so found the book more of a confirmation of all that I have seen and heard. Very readable!
    It seems that each community will need its own treatment centre. It is tragic!
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    Just finished The Fixer by Joseph Finder. It was a fun read of the action/adventure type, kind of like a Lee Child book. The author lives in Boston, so it's always fun to be personally familiar with the places mentioned in the novel. He has written several other books, and I definitely hope to read more of them.

    I think I read Dopesick, but I've read several others on the subject, and they all run together. It's definitely a cautionary tale.

    Just starting "Oh William!," by Elizabeth Strout of "Olive Kitteredge" fame. Loved the Olive books.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Finally had a chunk of time to read it this weekend - finished it last night. I really enjoyed it. I like historical fiction that hops back and forth in time. The author does a fascinating take on the burden (horror?) of never dying.
