Looking for a good book? Here are a few I’ve read recently or are enjoying currently…
1. The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll Through the Hidden Connections of the English Language by Mark Forsyth
I liked it even more than the last book I read by this author. Did you know ‘avocado’ comes from the Aztec word for testicle?
2. Life by Keith Richards
I didn’t pick up this book for the grammar or the vocabulary. What a life. That’s all I can say.
3. There Goes Gravity: A Life in Rock and Roll by Lisa Robinson
This book is about a journalist’s career in rock and roll from the sixties to the present.
4. Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World by Mark Miodownik
This book is absolutely wonderful. It’s funny. It’s personal. It’s even historical. And completely fascinating. I loved this book.
5. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
I haven’t read too many things by Russian authors. So far so good I’d say.
