We all enjoy different things

Saw one of those websites where famous people rec books. Usually it is some person saying that 'To Kill a Mockingbird' changed them for always. That has already happened to me. And many people are like my MIL, who always has the latest book club book, or the NYC best seller on her table, obviously unread. I have never seen her actually hold a book in her hand. But I like to know what other people read-- I was curious...

Bill Gates has had a delightful time, apparently, with a book on the history of shipping containers. There was a photo of him with that book and others, wearing a dorky smile and a sweater. Can't you picture him, curled up on his sofa, in his socks maybe, reading his shipping container book, slowly as he can so it lasts a long time, because he is having such a great time?

I know the joy of finding a book that just makes you happy, even if nobody else understands. May we all have that again soon.
