I haven't seen this topic in a while. What book(s) are you reading now, and would you recommend them (and why)?

I'm reading For Whom the Bell Tolls by Hemingway. I'm working my way thru the classics because they're the good stuff, and this fits the bill. Very good story, very well told, so I'd recommend it.

I love how a book can take me to far away places!

I'm reading the gluten connection. I am amazed at what symptoms gluten intolerance can be.

Love Hemingway. And he worked for the Star for a while, too. Right now I'm reading Steven Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature. Not exactly light reading, but illuminating. Definitely making me question a lot of assumptions.

Done with the gluten book. Great book..... Now I am going to start Heaven is for real by Todd burpo . I have been wanting to read it for a long time. The little boy has an emergency appendectomy and has a great experience to tell. My daughter had her appendix burst at 9 months old. Youngest in the history of. Children's mercy ( at that time at least I don't know abou now 13 years later) . So ... Should be interesting.

Is it a sad story? I have not seen the movie yet. I am not a fan of sad stories.
