Year in Provence by Peter Mayle — Almost like traveling without the costs. Also it seems the frustrations of having work done on a house is worldwide.
About Alice by Calvin Trillian — It’s been awhile since I’ve ready Trillian. He’s a pleasure to read.
The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement by David Brooks — A good book, but it had several very slow sections in it. A book to read and consider re-reading later.
