I read over five books (scan read some of them) on vacation, and am into Art and Soul by Hilary Brand and Adrienne Chaplin. I finished three retirement books. At this point they are more of a scan. Not much new in them. I think I have read about 15 retirement books, or scan read them, the last month. Our boarder cannot believe how fast I have been going through them!
One, though, was a big thick book called Financial Pursuit and aimed at people of all ages and stages in life. Hubby and I are thinking there might be information in that of use to our children in their 20’s/30’s right now. We are going to look for a newer edition.
I also read a biography titled The Hermit of Gully Lake, about a man who lived in the woods around Gully Lake in Northern Nova Scotia. Basically nothing much is known of the man. A lot is conjecture and hearsay. The author relies a lot on second and third hand knowledge. Truth be told, there was not a lot of documentation for her to use.
As for Art and Soul, I am just at the beginning of it. I read about Modernism and Post-Modernism so far. I have been side tracked by an e-book called Making Your Life As An Artist. A blunt and to the point book of what is important and what is not in pursuit of being a successful artist.
