    Do audio books count?
    Just finished https://librivox.org/captains-courageous-by-rudyard-kipling/
    Currently listening to https://librivox.org/poison-island-by-sir-arthur-thomas-quiller-couch/ (not as well done, but still interesting)
    https://librivox.org/souls-of-black-folks-by-web-du-bois/ starts off kinda artsy-fartsy but gets better.
    https://librivox.org/planet-of-the-damned-by-harry-harrison-2/ if you like older sci-fy

    Blue Tooth headphones / earphones while doing yard work, working in the shop, or just walking...

    Colson Whitehead's The Underground Railroad.

    deserved the Pulitzer, but one of the most disturbing books I've ever read.

    Don't tell anyone but I flew a check run with my CFI when I was a student pilot.

    I have read a number of biographies of the Wright Brothers and this was my favorite overall in terms of giving a sense of what their lives must have been like when they were working on the problem of flight. It is less well known than others, but I preferred it.
