New books so far:
Ancillary Justice Nookbook
Without a Trace Nookbook
Praying the Scriptures
Alan Turing: The Enigma ordered- not here yet.
Pogue's Basics: Essential Tips and Shortcuts
I can get three more - Hope to hit the used bookstores this weekend - we'll see.
Project Gutenberg - on the Nook.
I haven't read anything by Heinlein since my early 20s, dunno what I'd think now.
and #15 - A Fatal Advent by Isabelle Holand Episcopal Church mystery set in a New York cathedral (nameless but likely reckognizable ot those who know New York). Pretty good- I'd read the earlier ones in the series if they are at the library or jump off the shelf at a used bookstore.
Good airplane reading.
Mary Russell and Sherlock in Japan and further adventures. I always wish these books took longer to read. But I can't put them down either.
by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie
Predictable, but comfortable cozy mystery.
I'm just grumpy tonight - but do all cozy mysteries now need to include both a knitting pattern and a recipe? I have cookbooks and pattern books a plenty and they are all over the internet for free too.
Stand-alone novel by the author of the Maisie Dobbs series. Follows three main characters through the beginning and early years of WW I in England and France. I much enjoyed the audiobook version.
four and a half stars.
From my sons collectioin - but I don't think I read it before. Interesting to read from this vantage point in time- minor sub-stories dabble in bisexuality/homosexuality and psychoanalysis,within a larger theme of environmental degradation of Earth, lost alien civilization, etc. Good read.
Someone recommended Allende, and the library had this when I was looking for n audiobook. 4 stars
and #43 Mort because Pratchett...
# 47. Kindness Goes Unpunished - by Craig Johnson - for the Navajo mystery project. Third in the Walt Longmire series.
and # 48 Tail Gait by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie. A brand new LTER-ARC.
Enjoyed both - will review one and comment on the project thread on the other.
Beaton certainly has a talent for creating unlovale characters. Hamish and Priscilla are the only good guys here and we don't see much of them in this story.
This is the first time I've listened to an Archer Mayor audiobook- As good as reading it. I like Mayor's books- set in Vermont with a senior cop, lots of local color and a good cast of regular characters. Generally good stories. This one involves the aftermath of Hurricane Irene and its major flooding, a lost patient from the state hospital and old politics. All tie nicely together. At least two secrets being kept by trios.
I had held off reaqding this because I know I'd like it and wanted ot keep the enjoyment going. Now I have ot see how long I can delay reading the sequels.
China Bayles mystery - Texas herbalist former lawyer, China Bayles continues doing good - on the topic of invasive species both animal and vegetable. a bit preachy in the beginning but eventually the mystery takes over and it gets better. Obligatory recipes at the end actually look interesting.
# 64 A lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear - The next Maisie Dobbs book - Not quite as good as the last one, but I'll keep reading the series.
# 66. Still Life by Louise Penny - First of the Inspector Gamache series and the first I've read by her. I understand her popularity- an interesting collection of characters and a decent mystery.
# 72 The Dark Horse by Craig Johnson for the Navajo mystery project.
I think this may be the best Longmire book yet, but it has only a bit of Henry Standing Bear and no spirituality to speak of.
by Kim Edwards audiobook from the library
Not my usual type of book but a goodstory told in lovely language .
This was interesting for Pratchett fans, but might be a bit much if you're not already familiar with his collections. Many of the short pieces were later developed in some of the novels.
80. Knockdown by Sarah Graves. One of the home repair murder series books, this one doesn't have much to do with the old home repair until near the end but it comes through. interesting psychological thriller - a bit of a change for this author.
# 87- Junkyard Dogs by Craig Johnson for the Navajo mystery project. This is possibly the best of the Johnson books so far - but gets away from the Native American theme..
I figured I should try this classic- probably did not give it adequate attention in audiobook mode - meh.
A so so mystery - pretty good character development and ok plot, but as the story rose to its climax, the prose got rather purple. I was also annoyed that the author had not bothered to learn much about small boat handling, since it is a key pert of the story. Alas, the story was rife with mis-used terminology and concepts. An outboard propeller does not fall off if the shearpin shears - you don't hold the rudder to steer an outboard, etc. etc. The book needed a good editor.
