Doesn't have much to do with literature, but this reminds me the time I worked for the Entomology Department of the Bishop Museum. For most of my life, up to that point, I'd worked for the military, and people gave me grief about the abbreviations, acronyms, etc. Well, I since learned that just about every place has them. Medical-ese can be like a foreign language. But Entomology was unusual in that I was typing documents in foreign languages that no one in my office knew! Most often it was German, which I know maybe 25 words of (lived there as a child), which had my coworkers beat (I think they knew Danke Schoen but only because of the song!). So it took three of us to proof read the darned things. I almost went blind doing the job (literally).

Right now I'm most involved in Craig Johnson's As the Crow Flies. I loved Tony Hillerman, so am enjoying this. There are also 2 or three other books lying around that I'm reading in bits and spurts. I recently finished Apron Anxiety by Alyssa Shelasky. I usually like food-and-cooking based memoirs but didn't really like this one.

I'm trying to figure this out. I really liked the Tony Hillerman novels, partly because I've camped so much in the area his novels are set in.

I looked up Craig Johnson's As the Crow Flies on Amazon and the review seemingly has no relationship to Hillerman's novels. I presume the two comments quoted above were just separate thoughts?


I'm in between novels but I have a copy of the latest James Rollins Sigma Force novel Bloodline waiting at my local library for pick up (which I'll do tomorrow). Rollins isn't my favorite author but I've found all his Sigma novels enjoyable and well worth reading.

I'm reading "Those who Save us" by Jenna Blum. It's about a mother and daughter at the end of the mother's life. The two of them survived in Weimar Germany during the War but it has affected their relationship. It tells the mother's story of living in war-torn Germany (she is not Jewish so you get "the other side of the story") as well as their relationship now from the daughter's viewpoint. Very gripping.

I didn't see the SNL parody. Dang, I bet it was hilarious. Maybe I can find it somewhere on the net. ;-)
