I have also been re-reading the Life of Johnson and dipping into some of Johnson's own writings, though.
I was rummaging in a secondhand bookshop this weekend and found a couple of books. One was a travel anthology edited by Eric Newby. Newby himself is a good writer, was a wartime member of the Special Boat Squadron, and after leaving school worked as a seaman on the last fast run under sail in a clipper ship -- for the story of that see The Last Grain [sorry] Race:

I also found a book about a woman, Dorothy Kerin, whose name I knew as a founder of a local hospital. I started that one: it seems she was a very remarkable woman, intensely religious and something of a modern-day mystic and healer:

I'm not reading any Paleo/Primal/WAPF/etc. books at the moment. I must have a couple of dozen on my shelves by now, and there are so many other things to read ...
