Hello Commonwealth Family,

Are you any of you reading any good books right now? Have any favorites you'd suggest? Right now I'm reading The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt and will be starting The World and All the Things upon It: Native Hawaiian Geographies of Exploration by David A. Chang tonight.

Share what you're reading!

I've read "Heroes of the Valley" by Jonathan Stroud. He's a good author, I recommend all his books.

I'm currently reading a novel by I. Andrić called "The Bridge on the Drina" . Historical Fiction with a strong tones of realism and critics about the human condition are one of my favourites in book business.
