    Virginia in post #356 and possibly stillstANNding in the previous post as well.

    The book I'm reading at the moment is by a man who worked for many years as editor of the Oxford English Dictionary at the time when it was going online. It's called The Word Detective by John Simpson (2016).

    Corrected to add: Also Sunshine in #354 (looks as if I must have missed it).

    This is the book I have started. Love it.
    “ The Overstory," a novel by Richard Powers about trees, activism, and our connection to the natural world. “The Overstory” was shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize and won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. It is Powers' 12th book.

    In The New York Times Book Review, author Barbara Kingsolver calls it “a delightfully choreographed, ultimately breathtaking hoodwink” that seems to be a book about people but is actually about trees — and reimagines how we relate to them. At the end of November, Powers will join us on the PBS NewsHour to answer reader questions about the book. We hope you'll join us and read along.”
    I have teh book, someone passed it on to me and its in my queue!

    Has anyone read anything by Fredrik Backman? Wow, can that man write. I was having breakfast in a crowded café reading my first book of his and I was starting to think it was slow and not that interesting. Suddenly it hit and I burst into tears -- what a gripping, moving book. The kind waitress appeared with a handful of napkins and said, "Good book, huh?" All of Backman's books are like that. (I haven't read his last one yet. All the reviews make it sound like it's not one of his)

    I gave Mom two Blackman books and she wasn’t keen on them. I’ll see if I have them.

    Born A Crime- Trevor Noah
    Appalling and fascinating. Noah has a young spirit and writes with absurdity and appreciation for the dark humor in his childhood. I'd love to hang out with his hip elderly grandmother.
