And pretty much the whole first section of Pollan's book...so maybe the article was a review of the book???

Five of the seven books in The Journals of Thomas Merton are $2.99 at Amazon; four of them are $3.99 at Kobo and the fifth slightly higher. (The second and sixth journals are the regular price.)

Not someone I'd ever heard of, but from his Wikipedia article he sounds like an interesting character.

He's far better known here, mostly through his popular autobiography entitled The Seven Storey Mountain; he was ill-served in the UK with an abridgment by Evelyn Waugh called Elected Silence. Waugh didn't like it much, btw.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iblebody.atlas.

This is technically an app. It's getting hard sometimes these days to tell the difference between them and ebooks, as far as content is concerned. It is a 3D atlas of the human body.

Anyway, this appears to have stunning graphics. People seem to love it--it has a rating well over 4/5 at Google. It's regularly $24.99, but for the next four days, it is _99 cents_ at the Google Play store.

This Kind of War: The Classic Military History of the Korean War eBook: T. R. Fehrenbach

"Last Monday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general with a legendary appetite for military history, ticked off a list of book recommendations to a crowd of U.S. Army leaders and supporters—titles that might help them understand command, strategy and the ways war is evolving. But he kept coming back to one book in particular: T. R. Fehrenbach’s This Kind of War, a 54-year-old history of the Korean War that’s much better known in military than civilian quarters."
The Book Mattis Reads to Be Prepared for War With North Korea - POLITICO Magazine
https://www.politico.com/magazine/st...h-korea-215712

list: $17.99 sale: US$1.99, CND$1.99

The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language by Melvin Bragg is on sale at Amazon.com for $1.99

A good companion to this would probably be Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue: The Untold History of English by John McWhorter but it is not on sale.

The Greatest Knight: The Remarkable Life of William Marshal, The Power Behind Five English Thrones by Thomas Asbridge is $1.99 at most retailers. GR 4.20.

Quote:
A thrillingly intimate portrait of one of history’s most illustrious knights – William Marshal – that vividly evokes the grandeur and barbarity of the Middle Ages

William Marshal was the true Lancelot of his era – a peerless warrior and paragon of chivalry – yet over the centuries, the spectacular story of his achievements passed from memory. Marshal became just one more name in the dusty annals of history. Then, in 1861, a young French scholar named Paul Meyer made a startling discovery during an auction of rare medieval manuscripts. Meyer stumbled upon the sole surviving copy of an unknown text – the first contemporary biography of a medieval knight, later dubbed the History of William Marshal. This richly detailed work helped to resurrect Marshal’s reputation, putting flesh onto the bones of this otherwise obscure figure, yet even today William Marshal remains largely forgotten.
