Fiction- “11-22-63” by Stephen King. I am not a horror fan so this is the first King novel I have read. A little slow in the beginning, but the last half is a roller coaster ride!

The Righteous Mind - one of my favorites and really relevant for today.Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance - starts off slow but the end is amazing. The Alchemist. Autobiography of Malcolm X

Zen is kind of a tough one to stick with. I found myself putting it down for a while then picking it back up
