The book I'm about to start is "The Legends Club:An Epic College Basketball Rivarly" by sports writer John Feinstein. The book is the decade long rivarly  of 3 well know college basketball coaches,late Dean Smith of North Carolina,Jim Valvano coach of N.Carolina State and Mike Krzyzewski coach at Duke.

I have been a UNC 'Tar Heel' basketball fan for yrs,had the utmost respect for late Dean Smith,ditto for late coach Jim Valvano coach at NC State. As for Mike K,never liked him or his team,comes across as arrogant and full of himself.

I've read other books by the author,this will be an interesting read

I finished Malcolm Nance's timely book'The Plot to Hack America", was published 2 months before the 2016 Presidential election.I liked it& recommend it if you are interesting in learning how the Russians hacked the Dem Party server and others.

Penny Sartori's Wisdom of Near Death Experiences  chronicles her years of study as a nurse in the intensive care unit.  Another person who hooked me with her singular charm in a podcast.  I have been aware of her work for many years but listening to her is what sold the book!  Actually the book was a Christmas gift for my mother but the print is light & not easy to read so perhaps after her next cataract surgery she can attempt it.

The book I'm reading now is "The Plot to Hijack America:How Putin's Cyberspies&Wikileaks Tried to Steal 2016 Election" by Malcolm Nance.Nance is an intelligence/counterterrorism expert who frequently appears on MSNBC and other shows.

He wrote this book during the 2016 Presidential campaign,a very timely book considering what's going on with Trump's ties to Valdimir Putin and Russia. What I read so far is fascinating. Sue

I got halfway thru Brian Wilson's memoir,but stopped,Brian isn't a good writer,became boring .

I saw the movie"Love and Mercy' in '15,which is a bio of his life. I liked the movie better than his book Sue

The book I'm reading now is another memoir  called "I Am Brian Wilson" with Ben Greenman. Brian is the co-founder of the successful 60's singing group,"Beach Boys' with his 2 late brothers,Carl,Dennis,cousin Mike Love and childhood friend,Al Jardine.He wrote most of the group's hits,one of my all time favorites is "God Only Knows". In the book,Brian explains in his own words what happened when he couldn't perform on stage with the group in the 70's. The mistake of hiring Dr Eugene Landy who 'controlled' and misdiagnosed what his problem was,how Brian recovered with help from his 2nd wife,Melinda and his family. Sue

I'm now reading "A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron which is the basis of the movie which I saw a week ago,loved it.

The book is narrated by the dog,Bailey{same for the movie} he is reincarnated a couple times as different breeds of dogs,his observations on humans. I'll be interested to see if the book is just like the movie. The author has written 4 other dog books. Sue
