Books and Photos


Lockdown by Laurie R. King. The image cover says, "Trouble at a school." The dust cover says, "Explosive confrontation."

The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. Cover image says, "Beach story about female friendship." Dust cover says, "Identical twins, grown women, switch lives."

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. Cover image says, "Pre-WWII London and new woman in town." Cover says, "Women in 1915 and 1947 do spy stuff in London and France."

The Fall of Shannara: the Black Elfstone by Terry Brooks. Cover image says, "Wizard with a staff." Dust Cover says, "Words words words words." [I did not try to read it.]

The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz. The cover is all graphic artisty text. Koontz's photo is weirdly blurry/fuzzy.

The Force by Don Winslow. I don't care what the cover says, I'll read it anyway.

Warning Order by Joshua Hood. Cover says, " Shoot'em Up! novel." The description says, "Yep, Shoot-em Up! novel." I read the first one. That novel was pretty decent but had a couple plot holes.

Beach House For Rent by Mary Alice Monroe. Cover says, "Gerard, don't bother. You won't be interested."


Town and Country Days in Lake Mills is the last weekend of June every year. There is a carnival, Boy Scout Dunk Tank, beer tent, live music, sidewalk sales, parade, food vendors, so on, so forth. The event continue through today and ends early afternoon on Sunday. Here are a few photos. I'm at work all day but the parade goes by the library.
