Happy Friday, all!  This week, I took a break from my Miss Silver marathon (okay, not a total break– I did read Latter’s End, and don’t ask me what number in the series it is, because I’ve lost all track!) with a new release from one of my favorite “I would read a telephone book…

I’ve been very dull this week and reverted to reading mid-century mysteries again: Mary Roberts Rinehart’s The Door, which ranks low on my list of Rineharts for a variety of reasons, and Patricia Wentworth’s Dark Threat (I prefer the older title, Pilgrim’s Rest), which is number 9 or 10 in the Miss Silver mystery series,…

It’s been an absolutely banner reading week for me with not one but two new books in very different genres. Hearing my bat signals of copy edit distress (copy edits always cause distress), my amazing college roommate e-sent me Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material, in which the estranged son of two 80’s rock legends has to…

The Miss Silver Mysteries Marathon continues (this time with tersely named) The Key, but I’m so very grateful to the wonderful Kate Moretti for breaking up with Miss Silvers with an advance copy of her compulsively readable upcoming ghost story/mystery/thriller, The Girls of Brackenhill. I finished it in a day– much to the detriment of…

Happy July 4th weekend everyone!  This may not be the 4th we were all hoping for, but one thing stays the same: there will always be books. This week, I continued my Jodi Taylor and Patricia Wentworth marathons with the St. Mary’s adventure A Second Chance (book #3) and the Miss Silver mystery The Clock…

Happy Friday, all! So many thanks to everyone who zoomed in with me this week with Cary Memorial Library and Warren Newport Public Library— it was lovely seeing you! In reading news, I’ve been binge-reading Jodi Taylor’s St. Mary’s series about tea-sodden, disaster prone, time traveling historians.  This week has been books two and three,…

I have clearly been reading “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” way too much, because all I can think is, “Zoom, zoom, zoom!  Zoomy zoom zoom!  Author at the library!” Not just one library, two libraries! On Tuesday (tomorrow!), at 7:00 EST, I’ll be zooming with Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, MA– although you…
