    The Little Paris Bookshop - Nina George

    The international bestseller, translated from the German by Simon Pare.

    On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop; or rather a 'literary apothecary', for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers.

    Breathing Lessons - Anne Tyler

    Maggie and Ira Moran have been married for twenty-eight years–and it shows: in their quarrels, in their routines, in their ability to tolerate with affection each other’s eccentricities. Maggie, a kooky, lovable meddler and an irrepressible optimist, wants nothing more than to fix her son’s broken marriage. Ira is infuriatingly practical, a man “who should have married Ann Landers.”

    (I really enjoyed The Little Paris Bookshop and will read more later by Nina George)

    I’ve started reading “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry”, written by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

    In it’s preface, the author says you will “earn a foundational fluency in all the major ideas and discoveries that drive our modern understanding of the universe.”

    A very encouraging start, so let’s get “culturally conversant” and “hungry for more”. :)

    Currently reading: One Italian Summer: Across the World and Back in Search of the Good Life by Pip Williams


    Pip was born in London and grew up in Sydney, before moving to an acreage in the Adelaide Hills in search of la dolce vita. But despite being free from shoebox Sydney living, the move didn’t quite fulfill Pip and her partner Shannon's dreams of a richer life. Over a post-therapy glass of wine, Pip and Shannon decide to try their chances in Italy instead. They pack up their lives, bundle their kids onto a plane, and find themselves sleeping in a tool shed and working fertile Mediterranean soil under a Tuscan sun. Read about Pip’s work as a social scientist, the concept of ‘time poverty’, and how she and her family became ‘wwoofers’ – Willing Workers on Organic Farms.
