many good books

Really like Andrew Westoll's The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary, 2011. He is a good writer and it is a great story. Very glad I bought this book. He spent months at Fauna Sanctuary, a refuge for thirteen chimps rescued from a research lab, as a volunteer caregiver and he tells their stories and the story of Gloria, the woman who set it up.

Hot Art, by Joshua Knelman, 2011. Really interesting book about the black market that thrives in the Art World. He's done good research and tells the tales of stolen art all over the world. Well written book.

Listened to a bunch of books:
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth, not sure when she first wrote it. She writes well, about her early midwifery world.

Louise Penny, A trick of the light, 2011. Good mystery, interesting to read about artists. I like the foray into the alcoholics worlds too.

The Secret in their eyes by Eduardo Sacheri. Not sure when he wrote it. I wasn't going to listen to it, because the movie was so good, but once started could not stop. A good book.

more too, can't remember.....
