Just found a box of all my old Mad Magazine's and old Scooby Doo comic books from the 1960's and 1970's in my garage. That's always a good read....lol

I've just finished "The Seine: the River that Made Paris" by Elaine Sciolino , and "Five Quarters of the Orange" by Joanne Harris. One nonfiction and the other fiction, both enjoyable. Just started "The Europeans" by Orlando Figes but just started it. My husband really enjoyed it. We are having a lot of fun catching up on reading.

Yesterday I unearthed my old copy of "My Michael" by Amos Oz that I bought in Jerusalem in the 1980s. At that time I started reading it but never finished. I hope I'll reach the end this time.

Non-fiction books by Tony Hawks:

Round Ireland with a Fridge - Tony makes a drunken bet with a friend he can hitchhike around Ireland with a refrigerator in-tow. The book is about all the people he meets along the way and the word-of-mouth buzz his attempt starts to generate.

Playing the Moldovans at Tennis - Tony, a once-accomplished tennis player on a minor level, makes another drunken bet that he can beat each member of the Moldovan national football team in a tennis match. Although he does challenge many of the team members on the court, the book really focuses on his experience in that country and the wonderful family who hosts him while he's there.

LOL. Round Ireland with a Fridge is hilarious. I have not yet read the other one.

...and his other books sound good too - I have yet to read those ones, though.

When I was cleaning our attick I found my old Mondo-travel magazines but I am not sure if I dare to read them now, might get difficult case of travel fever

Just finished reading The Ashes of London by Andrew Taylor. It's set in 1666 during the Great Fire of London, which took place shortly after an outbreak of plague. Guess life has never really been very easy.
