Three Books

I see three books in my near future (probably library books — I have put myself on a budget). 

First is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I first read about Henrietta Lacks on Nancy’s blog, and I have been interested in Lacks’ life (and her life after her death) since.  I have enjoyed Skloot’s works in various science magazines, so I have a feeling that this book is going to be really good.

Second, I have always been interested in the dark true story behind Alice in Wonderland.  So Melanie Benjamin’s Alice I Have Been is intriguing.  Reviews have been mixed — but I’m still curious.

Finally, I don’t understand how I had to learn from Entertainment Weekly  that the great Dan Simmons (who penned such personal favorites as Drood and Terror), has another book out.  Black Hills promises to be another great read.

That’s the good thing about winters in Western New York.  One does not have to feel too guilty about staying inside and reading.
