Finished Phillip Margolin's "Wild Justice" in the middle of the night and also one Harlequin Intrigue, An Unexpected Clue by Elle James and now on #2 of six Sept Intrigues, BJ Daniels, Smokin' Six Shooter.
The Harlequin people messed up the shipment again this month. I think they changed the way they box up the books and it isn't working!! Missed both of the Harlequin Nocturne for Sept.

I think I could say I liked it.....as I alluded before, it seemed like Brown was attacking those who believe in God. But then, that's not a big surprise, since I've read the other two books. Anyway, it's be worth checking out of the library, if you don't want to buy it. The story all takes place in Wash, DC and in the space of about 12-15 hours. Makes for a fast-paced story. I kept visualizing Tom Hanks. : )

TBR pile gained 14 books today. My Sept Harlequins arrived and another of the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Now I have 1, 4 and 5. Waiting for 2 and 3 before I start on them. Reading David Baldacci's "Hour Game". now and then Phillip Margolin's "Wild Justice" So many books to read but I do enjoy them so.

Another one I'm reading (yes, I usually have 4 or 5 going at a time!) is The Pluto Files by Neil deGrasse Tyson, about all the hoo hah that went on when Pluto was 'demoted' from planet to dwarf planet a few years ago. It's an easy read and it's absolutely hilarious, especially the emails he got from school kids that were ticked off! I highly recommend it.

Blessed be.

When the Mississippi Ran Backward. It's about the New Madrid earthquakes in 1811-1812, two of Thomas Jefferson's nephews committing murder, and Tecumseh's prophecy that the Indian nations would be destroyed if they didn't follow him. It's really cool.

Blessed be.

I went to our library for the first time since moving here. It was an amazing place. So I brought home 3 books.

1) Wild Color-an out of print, hard to find book on natural dyeing with plant materials

2) Home Winemaking-an easy book to find but I wanted to look it over before buying my own copy

3) Handle With Care-Jodi Picoult's newest book. Love this author and can't wait to get started

Birdy, Amazon is great, but try Better World Books first. Sometimes you can find what you're looking for used. Prices usually start at about $3.98 and shipping can be 2 cents a book (offset of carbon costs).

If I'm not looking for a first edition (and sometimes when I am), I'll go to BWB first and see if I can find it cheaper.

Please let me be the person my dog thinks I am.

I have been fortunate to find a lot of my kind of books at the library lately. I am currently reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter book "Bad Moon Rising" Also have ordered the first 5 books of this series from Amazon used books. Books are cheap but postage is usually more than the book at $3.99 each.

Almost done with A Big Little Life. Anyone interested in animals at all, will absolutely love this book. It is well written (of course I'm bias, I love Koontz's work anyway) and a very sweet story.

Then on to Grave Secrets by Reichs since I will be having surgery on my shoulder and will have at least two free weeks to do nothing but sleep and read (and relearn to dress myself).

Had to drop the class unfortunately.

I just started The Jewish Husband which is about a man who gives up his entire past and identity to be with the woman he loves. Doesn't seem too mushy cause it takes place in Italy during WWII, but no concentration camps, just lack of identity. Sounded to good to pass up

I was given a lot of books by many authors I have never heard of, so I'm experimenting. I'm reading Dancing in the Dark by Mary Jane Clark. It seems a little disjointed, but it may come together as I get further into it.
I love Evonovich.
Julie Garwood is wonderful, but I'm finding her work hard to find (locally).
Sue Grafton is a fun read, wish she would finish the alphabet - I've read everything thru S (T is waiting till I've finished some of my inventory.
