    I couldn’t read all of A Life Worth Ending. Too painful. I am 59 and neither of my deceased parents ever set foot in a nursing home as residents. I am very grateful for that. One died at 70, the other at 82. I am all for euthanasia. I hope to off myself before I become too far gone, if it comes to that.

    I liked the 10 Books post, and I do know people afflicted with Answer Syndrome. Sometimes, egad, I have been one!
