A reading update: I'm adding a lot of books over on the right. I've changed the formatting so that the list shows 25 books at a time and I rarely add more than that at a time. But no worries, if something I read is particularly good (or bad or disappointing), I'll mention it here.
Shades of Grey - A new book from Fforde. I liked it a lot...perhaps not as much as the Thursday Next books but better than the others I've read.
Traffic - Fascinating book. You'd wonder just how interesting a book abut traffic might be...the answer is, very.
Going Bovine - Wonderful YA book. The main character has a form of Mad Cow disease...and yet the book is funny and hopeful.
Matilda Savitch - I really liked this book, though I want to re-read the end and see if I really did read what I thought I read. Intriguing book, though.
The Lock Artist - Loved this one. The main character is interesting and sympathetic, even if he is a criminal and expert safe-cracker.
The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag - Yay! Flavia de Luce is back and as feisty and persistent as ever. Great fun, though occasionally the author's non-Englishness peeks through.
I should also mention The House on Fortune Street and Horns. The Margot Lovesey is still sticking with me, weeks after reading it. And Joe Hill continues to follow in his father's footsteps, filling his shoes very nicely, thank you.
I've also read about eight of the Fables series of graphic novels. Rachel has the thriteen that have been published so far, so I have a few left in front of me.
