Thanks Dagga and Halli for keeping on posting. The only books I have been reading lately are books with titles like "Spanish Now!", "Marine Life of the Sea of Cortez", and "The New Science of Skin and Scuba Diving". I started reading Pearl S. Buck's autobiography (thanks to Halli for praising her or I never would have noticed it in the giveaway box). It was excellent and she writes about her life in a very unpretentious way but it is something that requires more concentration so I've put it aside until I get home. I don't have as much quiet time here as I do at home. It's worth bringing home with me but I still might leave it behind and just borrow it because I might want to fill my suitcase with seashells instead.
