Random quote: "I believe the way toward mastery of any endeavor is to work toward simplicity; replace complex technology with knowledge. The more you know, the less you need. From my feeble attempts at simplifying my own life I've learned enough to know that should we have to, or choose to, live more simply, it won't be an impoverished life but one richer in all the ways that really matter."

We're about at the halfway point of the year so I thought we could share what books we've loved so far in 2018. (WWEnd is like a ghost town lately but hopefully some folks are still around!)

I haven't heard of many of the books on your lists daxxh and illiegible_scribble. I'll have to look them up!

(Hopefully the broken forum stuff gets fixed soon so WWEnd will come back to life. I really miss what it was in the early days.)
