DK Eyewitness Top 10 Montreal and Quebec City by Gregory B. Gallagher. Let's check theMcGill entry for this one... this also mentions the Redpath Museum and says McGill has 80 acres and 300 buildings.


Strangled Eggs and Ham by Maddie Day. Yet another mystery with cats and cooking. This is set in Indiana. day is set "north of Boston".

Lost and Found by Danielle Steel. I don't know. Something that millions of people will read and enjoy.

The Daughters of Temperence Hobbs by Katherine Howe. Some book about things. Let's check out the author bio... Hey, Howe has had two bestsellers. She is one of those authors that "splits her time" between two places. I always wonder what that means. Does she have two homes? Does she park an RV in Maine for a week at a time?  Is their a family weekend home?

Big Sky by Kate Atkinson. I'll read her bio too... pretty brief bio saying she's written 11 novels and lives in Edinburgh. I wonder if she knows Ian Rankin? He writes a lot of books.

DVD/Blu Ray

Us starring Lupita Nyongo. Horror movie. Let me find a movie trailer...
