I am currently reading Kind Of Blue by Ken Clarke. A very interesting book regardless of one's political persuasion.

Rose I have read quite a few of her books:,Girl with a Pearl Earing ( good movie made of it too) Falling Angels, At the edge of the Orchard, Remarkable Creatures, The last runaway
There are a few others too, which I have not read.

All about very different times and places, fictional but drawing on real events - they all pull you right in.

For the second time I am reading "World's in Collision" by Emmanuel Velidovsky, I read it back in the 70's but was not well informed enough to understand it at the time.
Now with more info under my belt, it will be a pleasure to read once again.

Re-reading in memory of >> Gavin Menzies. "1421: The Year China Discovered America". A colleague who passed over the bar April 2020.
By way of Obituary.
A controversial book, written from the experienced perspective of navigating the world at ocean depths. As opposed to traditional Astro navigation, much less contemporary GPS.
Long debunked as Pseudohistory by myopic historians. That is now, with the advent of "Ocean Draining Digital Technology". Reluctantly being seen as. Transparent, Realistic and Accountable Philosophy.
