I am enjoying reading this book about English history. On first encountering it one would think that it would be a pretty tough read, but no, somehow the author has made it flow. Maybe it’s because I am eager to find some of my ancestors. The author, Dan Jones, covers the years 1120-1399. I’ve been able to trace a few of my ancestors back that far.

Very appropriate reading at this point in time in our country.

I’m forever working through my pile of unread books. The pile of unreads grows faster than the pile of reads. Makes me think of the Walt Disney film Fantasia back in the 1940’s. One of the first films I ever saw – probably in the University Theater in Harvard Square. The water kept coming despite Mickey Mouse frantically trying to keep ahead of the deluge.
Here’s a book for the New Year 2017. Truth Like the Sun by Jim Lynch. An interesting fictional take on Seattle’s history since the World’s Fair in 1962. I found this book 2nd hand at Eagle Harbor Books over on Bainbridge Island. It had lurked near the bottom of my unreads pile for about a year.
