The yarn is sumptuous, a blend of bamboo and silk. I found it on sale at Hobby Lobby in AL the last time we traveled there.
I read Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer a little while ago, but I’m including it because it was a new book (I do a lot of rereading). I think it was a very balanced account of the 1996 disaster on Mount Everest. It very clearly shows that armchair critics just can’t begin to grasp the difficulties of clear thought above 28,000 feet, even with supplemental oxygen.
Dead Wake by Erik Larson (he also wrote Isaac’s Storm) is the story of the last voyage of the Lusitania. This one is a loan from a fellow parishioner. I’m not quite half-way through but it’s quite good. I enjoy books that include a generous amount of historical context.
