Books, books, books. The world is made of books. I feel, with the use of iPhones and computers, many young people don't read enough. I read a lot. Of course I read medical literature, medical journals, and medical textbooks. I do that to keep up on current medical technology and to gain knowledge. I want to keep learning.
I also read sci fi novels about dragons, wizards, and the books of Steve Berry. I just finished The Lost Princess by Peter Silverman.
"In late 2010, art collector Peter Silverman revealed that a ""German, early 19th century"" portrait he had bought for $19,000 was, in fact, a previously unknown drawing by Leonardo da Vinci—an exquisite depiction of Bianca Sforza, rendered 500 years ago." It turned out to be a Leonardo DaVinci. Fascinating book!
I also recently read Ninety Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown.
"She made John Lennon blush and Marlon Brando tongue-tied. She iced out Princess Diana and humiliated Elizabeth Taylor. Andy Warhol photographed her. Jack Nicholson offered her cocaine. Gore Vidal revered her. Francis Bacon heckled her. Peter Sellers was madly in love with her. For Pablo Picasso, she was the object of sexual fantasy" It captivated my mind , my fantasy and the Royal Family."
You see, I am not just about hearts and parts, herbs and plants and bees and things.
