What books are you reading?

I have a few gardening books, of course, contemplating getting a book on growing cherries to add to the two books on soil, one on mycorrhizal world (useful fungi, symbiotic with tree roots) the book on growing apples and the Holistic Orchid (growing an organic orchard with emphasis on improving the soil and building the immune system of trees plus subsidiary/understory plantings.

Man cannot live by food alone, so I took delivery today of a book by Michel Roux “Pastry.”

Also a book on the history of the Celts and one on the history of China.

And I bought and read (for the second time) “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Just finished 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.
Read it when I was at school and thought it was time I re-acquainted myself with it.
