We just got home from East Texas on Sunday and then off we went on Tuesday to the Round Top Antiques Fair. We can't seem to stay home. The wildflowers!
We listened to The Murder of Roger Ackroyd on our travels. It is my first Agatha Christie, and I chose it because others recommended it as one of her best. I now see what all the Agatha Christie fuss is about. I wonder if anyone has other Agatha Christie recommendations.
If you have any interest in the Titanic or disasters, you really must read The Night Lives On. It was first published in 1955, and the author notes that everything in the book---descriptions, conversations, events---is based on eyewitness accounts of what happens.
And, The Good Life...It could be a life-changer. The Good Life is based on over a longitudinal study of over eighty years to find out what factors lead to happiness. The answer is surprising. I shared lots of quotes from the book in my review, so you might check that out (below) to see if this might be a book for you.
What I Read Last Week:
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie (Mystery)
A Night to Remember by Walter Lord (Nonfiction)

And we came home with a fourth chair

for our new table.
