BookBrowse Focus: Midlife Onwards

None of us are getting any younger, so this month's Focus explores midlife onwards.

As always, BookBrowse presents the best, most interesting and eclectic books. We have philosophy (The Poet of Tolstoy Park, Philosophy Made Simple) and advice (Still Here, The Wrinkle Cure, Live Now, Age Later). We have humor (Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman, Suddenly 60) and crime (The Water Room, Half Broken Things, All The Flowers are Dying, The Closers), plus a good dollop of love (The History of Love, The Sea) and a touch of romance (Children of the Storm). All this and much more!

Whatever your tastes, you're sure to find something new and stimulating in this section!
