I'm still reading all of these. I went over 50% for War and Peace after reading the story almost daily since January 1st.
Black Lives Matter: A Look at Books to Bring the Discussion Forward from Anne at My Head is Full of Books
Good Thing #1: My daughter-in-law covered the story of a woman finally released from the hospital in Chicago after a long hospitalization due to the coronavirus.
Good Thing #2: This national park puzzle. How many of the 61 US national parks can you name?
Good Thing #3: My great-nephew, 7, designed and drew this rhinoceros for a Texas wine label.
Bonus Good Thing: While we were cleaning out during the pandemic, we ran across this old record player and a stack of over a hundred old albums. It's been fun to listen to them.
