Anne  (arl0401) | 246 comments 4. Feb 1 Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic by Sam Quinones

5. Feb 16 A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-18 by Joseph Loconte

6. Feb 18 The Cuban Affair by Nelson DeMille Fun beach read while in Hilton Head for a wedding.

7. Feb 20 Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World by William H. McRaven Listened on Audio, very inspirational.

8. Feb 22 The Art of Living: The Classical Manual on Virtue, Happiness and Effectiveness by Epictetus Modern translation of Epictetus' advice for living. Just as appropriate for human nature now as it was 2000 years ago.

9. Feb 24 The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien Wonderful book. It's now among my favorites. I can't believe that I've never read these books before.

Susy (susysstories) Nice on track I see! Which one was your favourite?

I wouldn't really rank any as favorites. Probably learned the most from Dreamland. The Court novels were recommended to me by my daughter. They were escapist fun, but not my style. I'm hoping to get to some better reading soon.

Blagica  | 11903 comments A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. I hope that April brings you many more five star reads. Do you have a stand out book so far this year?
