I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.

Currently reading

The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss
Gloria Vanderbilt, Anderson Cooper
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot

This is such a fascinating read. It strikes a good balance of medical history and colorful narrative, bringing to life the story of a poor black woman with remarkable, regenerating cells, and her family forgotten and uncompensated by science.
