I "Heart" Books

Just to keep my reading records intact, here are the two latest books I’ve read – interstingly, they both have “heart” in their titles.

First, I read In the Heart of the Sea, by Nathaniel Philbrick. It’s the true story of the whaleship Essex. The ship was attacked by an angry whale and the story is about the men who survived. (Yes, it did help inspire Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick.) I don’t normally read a lot of non-fiction. This book just looked interesting. And, it was. interesting and graphic. Skips this one if you’re at all squeamish. Otherwise, it’s an interesting read.

Next, I read the first Maeve Binchy book I’ve read in years, Heart and Soul. Sometimes you just need a good Maeve Binchy book, you know?

I’ve got a nice little stack of books to work my way through – I’ll keep you posted.
