    Discworld book Reaper Man. This one was part confusing and part sweet. It was two stories in one. The first part I couldn't make heads or tails of. But I find many of these books to have parts that I just don't get. My husband and I are reading these because we have friends just crazy for them and they want to be able to talk to us about them. So we are reading them. We still have a lot to go...

    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.
