I'mNot reading right now -too busy. But I read several interesting books over the December-January holidays:
The most recent book was "21 lessons for the 21st century" by Yuval Harari. It's not really lessons, but rather some interesting thoughts on what the rest of this century is likely to hold in store for society. Each chapter covers a specific issue or field. For example, the 1st 5 are headed Disillusionment, Work, Liberty, Equality and Community. Certainly an interesting view of the future, although some readers might be offended by his dismissive comments on religion.
Actually, my most recent reading was not a book at all, but the daily (almost) blog of the crew of one of the boats taking part in the Cape to Rio yacht race. This gave a really good insight into what life is like on board a racing yacht, and has all the excitement of a thriller - you'll see why. https://www.jmbusha54sailing.com
