    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:

    Amazon.com: Last Grain Race (Picador Books) (9780330318853): Eric Newby: Books

    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:

    Our History | Burrswood Christian Hospital, Kent

    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 ...

    The Dirty Life - On Farming, Food and Love by Kristin Kimball.

    Barely into it and the NY journalist has fallen in love with her organic farmer after he prepares venison heart for dinner. So primal, haha, and humorously written.

    I just finished Wool last night for the Sword & Laser May book pick. it was very good but didn't quite live up to the hype imo. or maybe I'm just grumpy because I stayed up WAY too late finishing it.

    I tried to listen to it but I couldn't stand the narrator's character voices.

    The Perfect Health Diet, new edition, read the older addition a few years ago, reading this one now since there has been a "noise" in the primal/paleo community regarding more moderate carb intake ie: safe starches (root vegetables). This seems reasonable and interesting to me, see what happens.

    Wellll right now I'm reading "Invisible Man" by Ralph Ellison. And since we are discussing less...erm...impressive books as well, I'm actually also reading "My S*it Life So Far" by Frankie Boyle. Not so much on the intellectual side, but a good laugh.

    Also, I'm going to throw out there that I personally think the "Game of Thrones" TV show is terrible (I'm the only one on the planet, it seems) and I'm pleased that so many people are electing to read the books as well

    I really want to read game of thrones but I refuse to start it until either

    a) the series is finished

    or

    b) g. r. r. martin bites it.

    I don't want to get sucked in only to have to wait YEARS for the next book to come out. no thank you.
