    I’m tending to use Audible a lot at present and have Underland by Robert Macfarlane, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel and Science & Spiritual Practices by Rupert Sheldrake all on the go at present. I have two by Sam Harris lined up in my library for next. I have an annual subscription to Audible giving me 24 books per year, but I’ll read at least another 40 or so on my kindle.

    It’s a special day for us bibliophiles! I just finished Kristin Hannah’s BETWEEN SISTERS, an earlier gem of hers, but I just discovered it. Now on to short stories by Gogol, in translation. An animal lover and Russia wonk, I enjoy his detailed descriptions of farmlife and the Russian and Ukrainian countrysides.

    I am humbled and honored to be included on your book list. In fact, Corso’s book looks like a real gas. I love his poetry. Of course, what I love about the last book, is that it is natural. And you know that’s my bias. Thank you Patrick.
