Eight Books. Two Are NonFic.


Mistletoe Cottage by Debbie Mason. Some sort of Christmas novel. No wonder the cover has lots of red all over.

Someone to Love by Mary Balogh. Woman in a wispy green dress on the cover. Something about an orphan from Bath, IE.  Balogh lives in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan is a neat word. I have never been there. My wife and I were talking about summer vacations a few weeks ago and I mentioned going to Canada. He standard Canada response is, "The you'd have to pay for passports!" Well, yeah, we have to pay for gas and food too. What's the point?


Pacific Homicide by Patricia Smiley. Thriller with a killer. The author thanks several people in her acknowledgments. One of these people is Lee Goldberg. I read his books.

Night School by Lee Child. Let me take a wild guess at the plot. Jack Reacher is traveling around. Jack Reacher gets dragged into an investigation of robbery, murder, etc. Jack Reacher deducts and fisticuffs. Jack Reacher has sex with a woman police officer. Jack Reacher kills a few people. Jack Reacher hits the bricks.

This Was A Man by Jeffrey Archer. Heck if I know. How much time did Archer do for lying in court?

His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnett. Crime thriller set in 1869 at a remote Scottish village. The author lives in Scotland. Scotland? Is this a good time to mention how Anthony Neil Smith loves to reminisce about Scotland? No? Not a good time? Well, too late.


The Hour of Land: a personal topography of America's national parks by Terry Tempest Williams.  Something about the author traveling to parks to write about their history and herself. Page 283 says, "I didn't know where I was."

Geeky LEGO Crafts: 21 fun and quirky projects by David Scarfe. Make stuff. Page 94 says, "All the thrill of the hunt without any of the blood."
