The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
This was a thrift store find. I vaguely remember seeing the movie based on this book on TV as kid. There is much more plot-wise than I expected based on my memories of the film.
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
I’ve never read any Bradbury, so this was a welcome selection from my book club.
A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor
At 736 pages, this is a book that stays on my bedside table, and I read about one or two objects a night. When I feel like it. I imagine I’ll be done with it in about six months.
