New Year, New Books, New Photos


Green by Sam Graham-Felsen.  Is Sam a male of female? I don't know, let's check... it's a dude. Only white kid in middle school ends up being friends with a black kid. White kid slowly learns about his advantages. My write-up makes the novel sound hokey and preachy.  The dust cover write-up makes the novel sound interesting.

Death at Nuremberg by WEB Griffin and William E Butterworth, IV.  Cover photo has a guy with a shadowed face pointing a P-38 at the camera. To be fair it might be one of those P1 pistols, the post-war version of the P-38.

Unbound by Stuart Woods. Someone checked out a Woods book a week or two ago and mentioned how each novel is paint by numbers simple.

The Wanted by Robert Crais. Crais puts out some darn fine novels. I am behind on reading the books. This story has both Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

Carnegie's Maid by Marie Benedict. I have no idea what this is about. Probably one of those "Look inside the world of the rich through the eyes of a long term servant."  You know, I first typed term as tern. That could be a neat book; life with the Carnegie's through the eyes of a tern.



The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce.  Cover has someone, presumably a woman, in a green coat. Dust cover says, "1988... run-down suburb... adrift... shop... Ilse... music... wounds... behind... incapable... that... in... their... to... fiction."
