Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power by Rachel Maddow
Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

3Kcats, April 6, 2013

A very important book. Even more so with all the war talk coming out of North Korea these days.
It makes me think and look differently at the current events.

Julia's joy of cooking and learning about all aspects of food infuses this whole book. She had an extraordinary zest for life.

Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's: One Daughter's Hopeful Story by Lauren Kessler
Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's: One Daughter's Hopeful Story

My Mom had Alzheimer's. It took me 7 months after my Mom died to be able to read this book, but I'm certainly glad that I did.
It confirmed much of my experience with Mom in her Alzheimer's/Dementia specific assisted living. There are caregivers that are wonderful, caring individuals who come in on their day off when your loved one is nearing the end. It's a hard job being a caregiver. You are underpaid and much is demanded of you. It's not a job for everyone, but those that do it well are key to making the experience families go through a little more bearable. Also, I never felt that Alzheimer's took away the essence of my Mom. She was still there just in a different way than I was used to for the majority of my life. I recommend this book.

Moloka'i by Alan Brennert

I really enjoyed this book. I had read a Nonfiction account of the colony (The Colony by John Tayman) which was very good, but this story told as a fiction account helped me connect to the characters in a different way. This is also a "One Book, One San Diego" selection for 2012 and I'm so glad that it is. I am hoping to be able to attend one of the citywide discussions of the book this year.
