I just listened to an interview with Maria Semple on the podcast "Lit Up" and she sounds as fun and honest and flawed as her characters. Loved it!


For anyone who isn't familiar with Lit Up, it is a free podcast of author interviews - each about 45 min to an hour long. It is easy to scroll through the feed to find authors that interest you and skip the ones that don't.

Awesome! I loved Bernadette and have been wanting to try another one of Semple's books.

As I might have mentioned, I'm reading Talking It Over by Julian Barnes. I usually enjoy his stuff.

https://www.amazon.com/Talking-Over-...=julian+barnes

Anyway.

I'm 50% in and it keeps getting better and better. I'm loving it.

And imagine my glee (complete with flailing... seriously and really!) when I discovered that there's a SEQUEL (that required ALL CAPS, yes it did!) to it that's called Love, Etc.

That book is so good! I've read all of Moriarty's books and liked each of them so much.

I seriously can't put this book down! I have about 100 pages to go and I'm sure I'll finish this evening.

Finished up Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett last night and started Maskerade this morning. I may put that Discworld novel on hold for the moment because I got 1633 by Eric Flint and David Weber from inter-library loan this afternoon. I'm inclined to read inter-library loans before books from my local library.
