Just got started on this one: Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan (Volume I) by John L. Stephens. Originally published in 1841.

I found the book at a thrift store -- that's how I get most of my books these days. Until I got it home and started reading, I didn't realize that there was a second volume, which I don't have, unfortunately.

I have them in Paperback. But just noticed them listed in the internet archive link I posted previously

https://archive.org/search.php?query=foxfire

The Foxfire book series was my ranch maintenance manual when I lived in the boonies.
Still live in the boonies. But in city limits now.

Looks to me like anybody that lives off the grid < or on the grid > can borrow Foxfire 1 thru 10 for a couple of weeks. Gotta join and login to archive.org to borrow books from what I can tell. Not sure how it works out either < procedure and limitations >

I have just finished reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. It was better than I thought it would be. It is a romance with a lot of drama, especially popular with women.

Freely available and downloadable online, see:

https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1260

https://archive.org/search.php?query...%3A%22texts%22

I have never seen any movie version yet, but the image quality of the versions on Archive dot org are bad, somewhat better but still not perfect on YouTube. Reading the book is better.

I recently finished She Said by Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, the two NYT reporters who broke the Harvey Weinstein story. It was a riveting read that details the reporting process for an important and sensitive story. I recommend it to anyone who wants more details on the Weinstein case or who wants to know how journalists work.

I'm now reading Donna Tartt's second book, The Little Friend, before tackling The Goldfinch.

That's a mouthful.
Real funny book. Unfortunately, the film is almost even better.
I guess there's something called "Swedish Black Humour" that works best when you're not speaking (very much):
Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann (Robert Gustafsson)
I missed this, somehow!
Brilliant book and, though I find the book more enjoyable, the film was well made.
The follow-up is awesome as well.

Currently reading Flowers For Algernon though I know it will end in tears.

Just started Edward Snowden's Permanent Record. I feel slightly odd reading an autobiography of someone several years younger than me, but I dare say I'll get used to that. The first chapter was great.
