Picked up "Heat Wave" and "Naked Heat" by Richard Castle...they have Nathan Fillion's picture on them as the author. I wonder who is really writing them.

I have two books working right now. In the living room, I'm reading John Besh's "My New Orleans," and in the bedroom I'm reading Dorie Greenspan's new one,, "Around my Paris Table." Both are quite delicious, and will require "Lab work."

I'm reading "The Zookeeper's Wife" by Diane Ackerman at home, "Brava, Valentine" by Adriana Trigiani at work. Up next will be "61 Hours" by Lee Child. Just finished "Tensleep" by Sarah Andrews - will probably try to read the series.

Also looking through "cat cora's classics with a twist" trying to decide if I want to keep it or not - auto-selection from The Good Cook club. Same with "Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook" by Alice Waters though I found that one at a thrift store.

I'm reading the condensed version of the life of Katherine Hepburn. I bought a ton of readers digest books - used to come 4 stories in one book. I bought them off craigslist for a steal. I got piles of them. : ). I got them for something like $1.00 per book. Some or fiction, and some are non fiction.

Are you enjoying the Stainless Steel Rat? Have you read his "Make Room, Make Room?"

I am enjoying it. It is not what I was expecting, but I am sucked into it in a good way. I have not read Make Room, Make Room yet. This is the first Harrison I have read. It will not be the last though.
