by Cheryl Strayed — The story of someone hiking the Pacific Crest trail was the lure. She started this hike knowing nothing about long-distance hiking that I was surprised she stayed on the trail for more than one night. It’s a good book to read in the early spring — a great time to go hiking.
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith — A mystery set in the time at the time of the end of Stalin in the Soviet Union. The oppression and fear of that time is the strong theme I took from the story.
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman — It is an interesting book that challenges how questions are presented and data is interpreted. It is a dense book, best taken in small pieces.
