  1. In my work bag I currently have (hang on a sec while I look) two books, one kindle, and one half completed times crossword puzzle. I also just returned from a trip to Sicily, where I brought my kindle and seven untouched crossword puzzles. I won't lie. I was happy to have my kindle on this trip, more for the sake of having the extra space to bring home cheese, salami, and lemoncello, than because I am no longer in love with the way the pages of a printed book smell. I am in love with the weight and smell of printed books. And I love the convienence of being able to carry so many options with only one hand. I don't really even need a bag. It's not an either or situation for me. I'm reading "The Stone Boudoir" in printed form because it's about discovering the hidden treasures of Sicily, and it feels right to have those sorts of stories in my hands. And I care about buying books and supporting the independent store, which is why i still do both. But I also read from five different books on two very long plane rides thanks to the portability of my kindle. And now I have authentic sicilian lemoncello to drink while I pick up my next book. Just some musings.

  2. You're really just trying to make me jealous about your trip to Sicily and the lemoncello aren't you?If I ever go abroad again, looks like I may have to consider one of them electronic, handheld, reading device thingys. Sigh.

Car book! We always keep a non-fiction book in the car to read on the way to the grocery or if we get stuck in a traffic jam or if we find a park somewhere. Our current book is SUDDEN SEA: THE GREAT HURRICANE OF 1938 by R.A. Scotti. She writes surprisingly lyrically about a hellish event that took the inhabitants of the NE coast almost entirely by surprise, despite the awareness of some officials. Fascinating in the wake of Hurricanes Irma & Maria.

. . .
Gorgeous illustrations pop with foil pieces that highlight the words of this simple book, perfect for even the youngest reader. The sweetly lyrical text leads the reader from one - a tree - to many - the forest - and beyond, with each turn of the page showing more and more complex scenes through fall, winter, spring, summer, country, city, morning, and night, until we reach the end where the whole world is shining. I immediately wanted to read it again. For all ages, but especially 1-3-year-olds.

DARK IN DEATH by JD ROBB

Does not disappoint! Another solid read in the In Death series by JD Robb. I've been reading this series since 2013, since before she came out as Nora Roberts, and I keep expecting the next book and then the next book and then the next book to dip in terms of quality of style and content and originality, but it just doesn't (thank goodness!). In #46, Dark in Death, JD ROBB almost makes a play on her own life in ways, as Eve is after a murderer who finds inspiration in a specific author's murder mysteries. Robb literally pays homage to the master of the meta, Hitchcock, with mentions of Psycho and Dial M for Murder, and I'm pretty sure the author she describes is modeled after Robb herself (physically). The plot is pretty tight and focused, but we still get glimpses of Peabody & McNab; Leonardo, Mavis, & Bella; Somerset is still off on holiday; and there is just a peek at the growing romantic interest in Nadine's life, as well as a preview of Nadine's next best-seller based on Eve's police work. I'm looking forward to a future book of Robb's that I'm sure will go into further detail either about Nadine's upcoming Oscar nomination for the first book/movie or the publication and what I'm sure will be subsequent movie of the second book. Enjoy!
