Wicked by Gregory Maguire, since the book always seems to be better than the movie musical I’ve decided that I should probably read it since I thought the play was pretty incredible.
Diamond: The history of a cold-blooded love affair by Matthew Hart. I thought everyone loved diamonds as much as I do, but after talking to Micah he assured me that most women just love “pretty things” not the real history behind the industry. It’s been as awesome as any history/science/business/adventure novel I’ve ever read. It starts in 1999 with the discovery of a 76ct. true pink diamond in Brazil, then leads into the geology of the Kimber Pipe where diamonds are born and John Gurney’s postdoctoral work that cracked the mystery behind them ( and the fact that DeBeers tried to keep it from being published!). I’m only on the third chapter!!!!
The Duet by Robert Elmer. I’m only a chapter in but it looks like it will be a sweet love story from a widowers point of view.
I like to read a lot, and I like to have a lot to read. So depending on my mood and how much brain capacity I have I’ll pick I a book and escape for a few hours. There’s honestly nothing like a good book.
