I've been going through books like toilet paper lately. I had read the Ender's Game series, then after a couple of Jeffery Deaver and David Baldacci, I finally got Speaker For The dead also by Orson Scott Card. Thoughful reading.

Right now, I'm momentarily between books, but not for long. What do they call it?

I know, bookworm!

I just finished Speaker for the dead, a sequel to Ender's Game. I've got a few books on order, but none have arrived yet. On deck, I've got a book by Michael Connely, The Brass Verdict. John Grisham's The Last Juror, and Sara Paretsy's Windy City Blues.

Decisions, decisions.

I think Sara, I haven't read one of her books for awhile.

Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD. I stopped eating white wheat products 18 months ago, shrunk 4 sizes. Now I've cut wheat out of my diet--appetite is down, and I feel great. Interesting read if you've got that spare tire syndrome going.

I've been going through books like crazy lately. Last night I started Hell's Corner by David Balducci.

I just finished How The Light Gets In by Louise Penny. The most recent in the Armand Gamache / Three Pines mystery series. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

I've just started Aku Aku by Thor Heyerdahl, nonfiction telling of his voyage to explore Easter Island. A sort of follow-up to Kon-Tiki. Found it in a thrift store for $5. Lots of color photos.

Aunt Bea, I know you're a sharper shopper and probably wouldn't have paid so much for it, but sometimes ya just gotta.

Brought a stack of old magazines to read and leave with Loverly. Since we didn't know how long we'd be here I didn't want to get library books.
