I'm tackling a biography about Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Several readers I respect have praised this book: so far it is extremely interesting, although I know it's going to be painful to read as his life proceeds.

What are the rest of you reading?

Just finished Grizzlies in Their Back Yard by Beth Day, the true story of a couple who moved away from civilization in 1919, and how they survived and thrived.  I couldn't put it down.

Reading now She Ain't Heavy, She's My Mother by Bryon Batt, his memoir of growing up in New Orleans, and a sweet tribute to his dear mother.  Enjoying it so far.

Read a wonderful one this month:  Go Down Together:  The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde by Jeff Guinn which in my opinion is a five star read.
