Goodreads Update 3/29/17

I went Goodreads crazy this month. Here's what I added to my To-Read shelf:

Manderley Forever by Tatiana de Rosnay - It's a biography of Daphne Du Maurier.

The Best Land Under Heaven: The Donner Party in the Age of Manifest Destiny by Michael Wallis

The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit by Michael Finkel - For 27 years, this guy lived in a camp in the woods in Maine. He broke into empty vacation homes for supplies. This is fascinating to me.

Dial Em for Murder by Marni Bates - I don't remember why I put this on the list, but I remember being minorly intrigued by it.

The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum by Temple Grandin - Given recent developments in our household, I have put a bunch of autism books and books by Temple Grandin on the list.

Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism, Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior, The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism and Asperger's, Emergence: Labeled Autistic, Different, Not Less: Ultimate Success Stories From People with Autism and Asperger's, and Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and People with High-Functioning Autism all by Temple Grandin.

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen Year Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida

In a Different Key: The Story of Autism by John Donvan

Human: Finding Myself in the Autism Spectrum by Warren Mayocchi

The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome by Tony Attwood - Attwood is the first name in Autism education these days.

Aspergirls: Empowering Females with Asperger's Syndrome by Rudy Simone

That pretty well covers it right now. Pretty heavy stuff.
