I finished rereading the first 10 recently. Going to wait on 11 until they don't want hard back price for the Kindle download.

I can't get it on Kindle. It says not available to me...wonder if there is some Canada prejudice going on! (Edit: I just checked and it is now available again but holy crap!!! I'm not paying $18 for it)

I just finished another John Locke and laughed out loud. Then I read A Dozen Deadly Roses. Not a bad read for $.99. I'm going to the library to pick up a hold today, not sure which one is in.

I also finished Bonnie, by Iris Johansen. I thought it (finally) wrapped up that series nicely.

They want $15US for it on the Kindle. The series is ok... it isn't that good.

I suppose I will wait a year.

I'll get it from the library on the fast turn around shelf. Its a light read, not a keeper.

I have two trips to make Wednesday and Thursday and was wanting something to read. So, a dear friend pops by with a package for us....his very first novel! I can't wait to read it!

I'm taking a break from the Rowan series by Anne McCaffrey. I'm reading The Gripping Hand by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.

I'm reading a collection of short stories. "Whatdunit?" short story mysteries with aliens as the culprits. I'm not sure I will finish it...kinda dry. I will be going on a Clive Cussler rampage in the near future. Shrek keeps wanting to take books to the used bookstore and I haven't read them yet. My reading has been slowed down due to lack of attention...another fun symptom of peri-menopause.

F.451 read by Ray Bradbury is available at Audible.com. I wonder if that's the same one you heard on the radio.
I love listening to books... I listen to books while cooking.

I'm back in Spellmanland (Curse of the Spellmans) with Lisa Lutz as she blazes a giddy trail into the second of the detective-family series. Quirky is definitely the word. And fun.

Food of a Young Land, a title from Aunt Bea I believe, is waiting in the wings.

Michener's Centennial, my purchase from the library sale for a buck, fills in the spaces. It's now working on the Colorado Native Americans, discovering the black stick that kills.
