    How the Fender Bass Changed the World - I'm still a bass novice, but I love the history of the instrument.

    I have been reading this special kind of Bible that is set up for a person to be able to read it in a year. Called the One Year Bible it has a reading from Old Testament, New, a psalm, and proverb. It is a lot easier for me anyway than trying to read it from cover to cover.

    A couple days ago, I finished up The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes, which I read as preparation for the Netflix series. After that I decided I was in the mood for something different, so I started a non-fiction book, The Inside Lives of Animals: Love, Grief and COmpassion - Surprising Observations of a Hidden World by David Wohlleben (translation by Jane Billinghurst). This is actually the first non-fiction books like this I've read, and it's been really interesting so far.

    Still have a lot of Disc World books to read. Both my husband and I are reading them. I get two at a time from the library. Right now I am reading Small Gods. My husband is reading Witches Aboard.

    I finished up The Inner Life of Animals yesterday, and started Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews, the 7th book in their (Ilona Andrews is actually a husband and wife who writer together) Kate Daniels series. This is one of my absolute favorite series.

    Today was a loooong day of airline terminals and long flights. Finished off a re-read of Spock's World, re-read the entirety of The Vulcan Academy Murders, and made it through the first 30% of Predator: Incursion.

    Finished Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews, which was just as good as the rest of the series so far. I think this actually set a record for how fast I read a full length 300+ page novel. Usually it takes me about a month to read a book this long, but I've started reading early every morning before I get out of bed, and I just started this on the 24th and finished it today. It's late and I don't feel like doing the math, so I'm not sure exactly how many days that is.

    I finished ‘Prayer for the Crown-Shy’ which is an excellent novella by Becky Chambers.

    Just started ‘Shogun’ by James Clavell which I am reading to on my Kindle while listening to the Audible book. It is about 1190 pages long and a 53 hour long audiobook.

    Last week I started reading Star Wars The High Republic: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule, it's really good so far. It's a nice introduction to this new era of Star Wars.
