What I’ve been reading and watching…

Here is what I have been reading.   I recently finished reading “The Sense Of An Ending” a novel by Julian Barnes.  I can’t recommend it enough.  In the past month I read Paul Hendrickson’s book, “Hemingway’s Boat – Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost, 1934-1961”.  Meticulously  researched book about Ernest Hemingway.  I liked it.  This past week, I read “The Tiger – A True Story of Vengeance and Survival” by John Valliant.   Many critics had this book on their list of the 10 best non-fiction book of 2011.  Surprisingly, there only 3,200 tigers still living in the wild.  Tigers are very much endangered.  There are 2,000 tigers living in captivity in Texas alone.  There has yet to be a single tiger released into the wild and that survived after being raised in captivity.  I am also watching on DVD, the documentary, “The Last Lions”.  We may be the last generation to see big cats, like tigers and lions, anywhere but in the zoos.
