I have started reading "THE DAWN WATCH: Joseph Conrad in a Global World" by Maya Jasanoff. I like Conrad's writing, having read his "Lord Jim", "Heart of Darkness", "Almayer's Folly" and some of his shorter works. Next year hopefully I shall read him more.
"The Dawn Watch" is my 48th and last book this year. Without doubt, reading is keeping me alive. I live to read more than I live to eat. My rib cage shows on my body, and my shoulder and neck bones too. I weigh 105 pounds at age 68. Not bothered at all because I am still heavier than Mahatma Gandhi. He had weighed only 102 pounds at age 70. 😀
