I'm reading The Heart of the World by Ian Baker. He is a world traveler and works for "National Geographic." In this book he is in Tibet looking for a waterfall in an area called Beyul Pemako, which means "the hidden land shaped like a lotus." This is the place which may have been the basis for Shangri-La. This has been a very good book so far and it's making me pull out all my books on Tibetan Buddhism again.

Hello!


Last week I finished The Great Derangement: A Terrifying True Story of War, Politics and Religion, by Matt Taibbi. It was really interesting and in some parts pretty hilarious. I actually teared up with laughter on the bus, much to some of the other passengers' chagrin. Don't agree with everything the author believes, but I think he makes some really good points about politics in the US and how some people have seemed to have lost their minds. It was written and published before the elections in November, so some of the information is already outdated. Still, it makes some points worth pondering about what we want out of our leaders and how we really do need to work together.


I also speed read The Temptation of the Night Jasmine, by Lauren Willig. I really have to say that I liked her first three books better, but it was still alright.


Then, to my extremely inappropriately disproportionate joy, four books in my hold queue came in at the library. I got going on those right away.


So, I'm almost done with Grave Goods, the third installment of the Mistress of the Art of Death series, by Ariana Franklin. I'm really enjoying it. I think the atmosphere is creepier than in the first two books (not that they didn't have creepy parts, but this book is creepier for most of the book as opposed to just in parts) and it's keeping me entranced.

I'm reading The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. Amazing that it happened over 60yrs ago.

I finished Mudbound last night which was very good and started Tears of the Desert by Halima Bashir. So far, I'm enjoying it.
