Just taken delivery of "The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon" - the latest in the Ladies' Detective Agency series. Lightweight but entertaining. Not in the mood for anything too demanding at the moment,

I'm about halfway through Tatiania by Martin Cruz Smith, the same author that wrote Gorky Park and other great books----- and enjoying it very much.

A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home, by Sue Halpern. Just started, no idea how I feel about it, yet.

Sounds like familiar territory for you, PF!

Just finished George Takei's "Lions and Tigers and Bears". A quick, light read. Now I'm looking through my Kindle for the next book.

I'm actually in the middle of Divergent. A couple of people I know suggested that I read it. I have to say so far it's pretty disappointing.

Currently reading #4 in the Guild Hunter series "Archangel's Blade." The series is a bit of a bodice ripper romance but the other parts of the plot carry me enough to keep me interested. The romance between Dmitri (Raphael's head vampire) and Honor (a vampire abused woman) interestingly parallels the romance between Raphael (head archangel in US) and Elena, one of the top Guild Hunters (who hunt down vampires who aren't following the rules). Well it's complex.

Nalini Singh has invented an interesting urban fantasy world in this series. I have a few other urban fantasy series to switch to for a while but I'll be back for more Guild Hunter soon.

Just finished Tess Gerritsen's "The Surgeon", and now I'm hooked. On to "The Silent Girl".

I've read and enjoyed several of Gerritsen's books. They are great thrillers!

Indeed! I'll have to order some more for Kindle. I can't put them down.
