I've just begun Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny.. ....it's already vintage Armand Gamache 😊 and Penny is busy untying all the knots we thought were tied by the end of the last book. The timing, so far, seems to be just a few weeks later. Louise Penny has got to be close to the best authors currently publishing books!

I thought this an interesting article on the process the NYT uses to review books.

I started Pause to Rewind last evening. I am already half way through it. I'm not sure that it will be a happy ending book because of the subject matter but the characters draw you into their world and are such likable people.

Not sure what I will read next. I want to read New York: The Novel but I am highly irritated that I can buy both the hardback or paperback version for less than the e-version. Why in the world do they do that? It seems to me that the e-version should always be cheaper. I also added The Headmaster's Wife to my list. Has anyone read it?

Yes, I read it a while back. I enjoyed it immensely. It does have some interesting twists and turns.
I hope you like it as much as I did.

I'm halfway through Graeme Simsion's "Rosie Project" and am charmed by it. If you're looking for an entertaining and humorous read, I highly recommend this one.

I finished reading Rex Stout's "The Red Box" the second novel in the two novel book, coupled with "The Rubber Band Gang." I won't be reading a third.

Next up: "Sidetracked" by Henning Mankell, translated by Steven T. Murray

I just finished reading "The Forever War" by Joe Haldeman and am reading "Forever Peace" by the same author. I had "The Forever War" on my radar for some time and ordered it after noticing it in a Sci-fi thread here in "books". I've ordered "Forever Free" and will probably read Lee child's latest "Make Me" which should take me through January or February. After that I'll continue with the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb.
