History, Literature, & Book Basket:
1: Book Basket:
3:  Years of Dust ~ Marrin (1930’s) U.S  ( I usually avoid books set in the depression era  - they're so depressing ;-/ - yet,  I really appreciated this one.  Recommending it to my non-U.S associates too.)

Book Basket:
Pre reading, or listening to, 
before handing to Daisy:
  • Star of Kazan ~ Eva Ibbotson
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd ~ Agatha Christie
  • They Found Him Dead ~ Georgette Heyer
before handing to Jay:
  • Go Set a Watchman ~ Harper Lee  (currently on special , 2 bks for 1 credit - on audible USA)
My books:
  • New Zealand's Greatest Doctor Ulric Williams of Wanganui:  A Surgeon Who Became a Naturopath ~ Brenda Sampson (Some really interesting details/testimonies in this book.  I've been regaling the family at tea time with anecdotes about this very dynamic man  ;)
  • Own Your Life ~ Sally Clarkson (re-read)
  • The Great New Zealand Baking Book ~ created by Murray Thom & Tim Harper
  • John & Naomi Hill: Pioneers in Australia from 1841 ~ Compiled by Ronald H. Hill  I've been reading some of the excerpts, that have interested me, out loud to the family, and we all decided the letters between Naomi Hill (in Australia) and her brother Jesse Vickery (in England) read like something written by Charles Dickens; so much death, sadness, sickness and sorrow.
