Very Light Reading

51+XXM6ipML__BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-52,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_I keep forgetting to review books.  I re-read Tough Cookies for the JLC book club last month, and I also zoomed through Death Catches a Killer, another little novella by Teresa Watson.   Lizzie Crenshaw is a sassy, smart, loyal gal, but I don’t think I’d want to hang out with her.  She’s totalled a few vehicles, been shot, gotten others shot at, etc.  Talk about a magnet for trouble! 

I hear the next book is longer – more like a full-length novel, and I’m looking forward to it.  Lizzie lives in a podunk town too, where everyone knows everyone else, so I find it very easy to relate, but I wouldn’t want her to watch the fur-girls for me either.  Her house is broken into so often she might consider putting in a revolving door.  Those are kinda’ fun, aren’t they?

While I have a pile of cozies waiting, I’ve started Farenheit 451, also for the JLC book club.  I believe I’ve mentioned that our new focus is literacy, so the vice-chair of our Literacy Go Team thought it would be a neat way to honor our new focus.

What are you reading?

    There’s a new Lizzie coming out? Fun. I’m reading Lost and Found. After finishing a good book with a horrible ending by a favorite author. Sobbed through the end. g

    I have a bunch of cozies waiting too but I think I might like to set them aside and read Death Catches a Killer. I think I might also like to hang out with Lizzie! She sounds like one of the “gang of three” ladies I hang out with–the one who carries the .45 in her purse. I stay away from heave reading in the summer. Books like Farenheit 451 is curl up by the fire winter reading for me.

    The temperature at which paper spontaneously combusts.

    I’ve been trying to get myself to sit down and take the time to read Letters From Yellowstone.

    A couple days ago I finished the new Dan brown book Inferno. It was suspenseful and I kept reading to see what Robert Langdon was up to.

    Now I’m reading the new Stephen King, Joyland. He released this in paperback only, no ebook version.

    I’m rereading an old favorite “And Ladies Of The Club”. It takes place in the years following the Civil War in a fictional town that is modeled on Zenia, Ohio. It follows the members of the literary club and their families and friends. It deals with the politics of the time: aftermath of war, immigration (Irish and German), education, a do nothing Congress and of course women’s rights. Sounds familiar somehow, doesn’t it?

    Do audio books count? On my way to and from Denver, I listened to Firefly Lane and To Catch a King – both great, by the way.

    Still not quite back in reading mode yet, so limited to reading The Patriarchs for my weekly Bible study…hoping I get busy reading at camp next week.
