Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child "Relic". Went thru myriad book titles with annotations to get to at least 5% interesting subject. "Relic" about museum's new figurine discovered by paleo-expedition group. It's sci-fi - being sci-fi enthusiast, choose it to read. Quit seeking, thanks to it.

A friend had recommended a book as a "pick me up, " so I'm reading it . It's A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen. Bowen, a street performer in the UK, befriended Bob. And as usually the case, adopted stray cats are the best. Bowen has written later books about Bob.

I had received a FB post about books from the 1920's that are worth a read. One in particular caught my eye - Giants in the Earth, by O. E. Rölvaag. It's translated from Norwegian  (I de dage). I'm a sucker for books about pioneers ( in this case, Norwegians settling in the Dakota territory ). Also like books about people trying to restore old farmsteads. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
