    Halfway through the non-fiction book, A Victory Garden for Trying Times: A Memoir by Debi Goodwin.

    Saw this quotation in the book and thought of @cyn88canada :

    But I found my favourite survivalist garden movement online. The Zombie Victory Garden website offered insight into growing vegetables to prepare for the zombie apocalypse. Their motto: "The Zombies Are Coming! Quick! Plant Something!"
    The book is about how the author coped while her spouse was getting cancer treatment. I think this memoir ought to be the second book one reads, right after Twisting Fate, when one is waiting on biopsy results. The scenes in doctors' offices and in the hospitals do unnerve me while reading at night or early morning. But think of the book as DIY research 101-what might be your path if you decide to take standard of care which seems more like a gauntlet of how mean can healthcare professionals be to a person's psyche and body. I can only imagine how the dietitian in the book might have acted towards my rail-thin father if she were to berate him for not eating enough to keep his mass up. Not like he could tell whatever was within him to stop doing the internal damage/cachexia. His legs were the first parts of his body that got too thin.

    Upside-the garlic clove images on certain chapter pages plus talk of when to plant seeds or sets in one's garden. Author loved her seed catalogues.

    Me too @flemeth

    I read The Death of Mrs Westaway last week and really enjoyed it so I decided to try another of her books too!
    It is not what I expected, I am about half way through but I am enjoying it

    Finally! I finished The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
    Can't say I loved it BUT probably because I read it sporadically over a few months.

    Just started Hillary and Chelsea Clinton's joint book called The Book Of Gutsy Women , so far I like it and I am learning stuff!

    me - elton john

    actually listened to an audiobook for the first time.
    it's very well written and it's narrated by taron egerton, who played him in 'rocketman'.
    apparently, though i'm missing out on a lot of pics that are included in the book version.
