    Steven Universe: Art & Origins (currently a favorite show amongst me & my siblings) and The Marvelous Hairy Girls by Merry Wiesner-Hanks. The second is part biography, part-social history chronicling the life of Petrus Gonzalvus, known to the world as The Wolfman of the Canaries.

    "Jacobites - A New History of the '45 Rebellion" by Jacqueline Riding. This was published in 2016, and I received this from a friend for this past Christmas. I have not begun reading it yet, but the reviews indicate a good read.

    I also enjoyed the detective Jim Chee series by Hillerman.

    At Christmastime, Lovely Wife and I enjoyed reading Compton Mackenzie's Whisky Galore! Now we're on the hunt for videos of the original 1949 Ealing Studios film or the new 2016 remake with Eddie Izzard. It's based on the true story of a Scottish island that has run out of whisky during WWII -- and of the shipwreck of a cargo vessel carrying 50,000 cases of the stuff. Hilarity ensues.

    Now re-reading the 13 Inspector Gamache mysteries by Louise Penny (and listening to audiobooks of the last couple, narrated by Downton Abbey's Robert Bathurst).

    Also dipping into two volumes of essays by Scotland on Sunday's Peter Ross -- Daunderlust: Dispatches from Unreported Scotland and The Passion of Harry Bingo: More Dispatches from Unreported Scotland.

    I have the movie on dvd, but I'm unsure how easy it would be to get in Blu-Ray. The older Blu-Rays will play dvds, but the new 4k Blu-Rays will not.

    Just finished The Harry Starke Novels by Blair Howard. Not heave, but not a bad read. They're set in Chatanooga, so a lot of the terrain is familiar, which is always fun.

    Just before Christmas I read A Room with a View by E. M. Forester and just because I never had and reread Moby Dick.

    I am reading Concepts of Modern Mathematics by Ian Stewart. I know, my wife thinks I'm a nerd, too, for reading about math when I don't have to.
