Thank you, Lisa! I have it on hold at my library, so I'm going to play nice and wait my turn.

In the meantime, I came upon this book, which is described as charming and whimsical: The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan. It's a debut novel, which I like. It's a short book, which is all that I can muster right now. I just hope that it's not *too* charming (I will NOT read chick-lit) or *too* whimsical (I will NOT read twee or "magic"). I hope to start on it tonight if I don't collapse from exhaustion first.

Despite my ever-growing TBR list, I ran across a book the other day that I'd never seen and picked it up: The Boy Kings of Texas by Domingo Martinez. It's a memoir about growing up in the border city of Brownsville, Texas which is not far from where I live. I'm only a few pages in and not yet sure about it.

Is anybody here interested in hearing about urban fantasy and sometimes romantic urban fantasy? I see no reason to post my reading unless there are other enthusiasts or might wannabe enthusiasts or otherwise I'm just posting off into a vacuum.

If there's no interest I can restrict my participation to my mystery, suspense and action novel readings. Less than 10% of my reading lately but I have plenty of catch up on series I've missed the last year or two. I can report those.

^^^^^ Go ahead and post about whatever you're reading. You never know who is looking at this thread for book ideas. And don't worry about posting in a vacuum. I often write down the titles of books w/o responding to a comment.

Dawn, that sounds like a sweet story and I put it also on my wish list. I wish I would get paid to read all day

Please share what you're reading. Most of us have quite a wide range of what they are interested in and you can always try to broaden our horizons
