Loretta, I finished the 'Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstore' by Robin Sloan'. I'd give it a 'C+' -- I think there a lot of other books out there to entertain you -- This one started off strong, but just didn't follow through (for me). If you do decide to read it, I'd be interested to see what you think.

Am now starting 'A Train in Winter' by Caroline Moorehead. Stay tuned!

Michele

A few chapters into Patricia Cornwell's Flesh and Blood. Having a really hard time with it as I don't remember her books being so wordy....she keeps saying the thing over and over and over again, like she was being paid by the word. Plot moving slowly as a result. Might it give up tonight...will see how it goes..

Can't recommend Cornwell's Flesh and Blood. unless you are an ardent, very ardent, fan of hers and expect to read the next book in the series. Not only did she repeat herslef over and over again but it leaves you hanging with no real ending. I hate when authors do that. I used to love her writing even tho' it was sometimes over my head with the medical terms as each one stood alone with the continuing story of her family which added some depth to them....oh well, can't win 'em all. I don't intend to look for the next book either.

Also read a book by a new authors, Sally J. Smith and Jean Steffens, Mystic Mayhem A story of a resort in N'awlin's. A two-day read but interesting plot with an insight into New Orleans....lots of fun and a cheapie on the Kindle.

Finished Angel's Flight and now listening to Unbroken. It is a WWII novel but it is just being narrated without any dialog exchange in the characters. I am about to quit it. It is supposed to be excellent. Maybe I just don't care for the lack of dialog. Laura Hilldenbrand is the author.

I gave up on Unbroken. I just do not care for war stories evidently.

Reading on the kindle The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nora Roberts, almost finished. I am on the waiting list for Boys in the Boat. It seems to be a popular book. I put it on reserve, 6 people ahead of me.

Will read Elizabeth Lowell's book Amber Beach next.



Listening to John Grisham's The Partner

A correction. Nora Roberts did not write The Scent of Rain and Lightning . It was Mary Pickard.

Thanks for keeping this thread going, Loretta.

Since my last post in late November, I've finished 'Their Eyes Were Watching God' by Zora Neal Hurston. I've also read 'The Sins of the Father' by Jeffrey Archer, 'Best Kept Secret' by Jeffrey Archer, 'Be Careful What You Wish for' by Jeffrey Archer, and 'Mightier than the Sword' by Jeffrey Archer.
I'm just starting the next book in Archer's Clifton Series, 'Cometh the Hour'.

Happy Reading!
Michele

I am rereading Cube Route by Piers Anthony. It's sort of funny that I like this series with 39 books with 2 more on hold because of a dispute with his publisher and the In Death seriese by J. D. Robb ( Nora Roberts ) with 41 books. And they are as diferent as night and day with the xanth seriese being full of childish puns often with adult overtones where
the stork really does bring the baby.

Sure had to search for this thread.

Listening to The Appeal, John Grisham an eye opener about political issues and funding for campaigns. Some fixing of judges for big companies favors.

Reading Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigani on Kindle app.

Enjoy that Doris. I used to subscribe to it.

Listening to Sacred and Profane, Fay Kellerman, 2nd of a series. Good book.

Reading on Kindle, The Pieces we Keep, Kristina McMorris, It is OK.
