    I just finished, They Can't Kill Us All by Wesley Lowery, which I would recommend, and I started, Best Food Writing 2017, edited by Holly Hughes. Good so far.

    Re-reading WG Sebald's Austerlitz. I recommend it, but you should read his novels Vertigo and The Emigrants first.

    I love that quote of Bukowski's that goes something like, "I like the idea of poetry and poets but I'm really not a fan of reading poetry."  The man had grit!

    Speaking of poet/novelists, I'm reading this remarkable and intense memoir by Native American writer Sherman Alexie:

    Stories of Your Life and Others. A collection of short stories and novellas by Ted Chiang. One of them, Story of Your Life, is the novella that the movie Arrival was based on. I haven’t seen the movie but now I’d like to. The story is gorgeous.

    Moonglow by Michael Chabon.   Very interesting review of the history of rocketry and the early space program,
    with an absorbing cast of characters.

    I've read nothing but positive reviews. I'm toying with the idea of seeing it, actually.

    Never heard of the book. But since I only like five of Spielberg's fifty or so films (and only one of those was made in the 21st century), this is an easy skip for me. I'll see it when it comes on television. I have a feeling that I shouldn't read the book first -- that way I at least give the film more of a chance.

    It is a very light read but overloaded with 80s pop culture references and especially for video game lovers.  I thought it was a fun book.

    After seeing the mind boggling incredible climbing film, Meru, I decided it was high time I pick up Jon Krakaur's Into Thin Air. I am simply ripping through this incredible book!
