I could not get into the book about the History of Tea,I gave up after 60pgs.The writer was too detailed found it to be quite boring,oh well

The next one on my list is"My Bookstore" edited by Ronald Rice and Booksellers across the country.

91 authors have written essays about their favorite places to browse,read and shop.This should be interesting.

Since my last post,I've read these books:

1.Neither Snow or Rain,a History of U. S. POstal System by Devin Leonard,interesting&fascinating,didin't realize it was started by Ben Franklin

2."The Abundance",narrative essays old and New by Annie Dillard, like the way she writes.My church minister is a fan of hers,got me hooked

3. 2 mystery books by Peter Robinson,"All The Colors of The Darkness","Children of the Revolution",featuring Inspector Alan Banks

4."Halleuijah,Anyways"-Anne LaMott ,her latest book how we should embrace Mercy. I've read most of her books,like her sense of humor,prefer her non-fiction books

At the moment,I'm reading JD Robb { aka Nora Roberts}'Memory in Death',love these futuristic'in death' series books. I've read most of them,well written with some humor,with same characters Lt Eve Dallas,her multi millionaire husband,Roarke,Eve's police partner,Delia Peabody among others.

@doglover52  I am almost finished reading The Violinist of Venice by Alyssa Palombo.  Very enjoyable and I am glad you recommended it.  The author has a new book coming soon, The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence: A Story of Botticelli.

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

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.
