A Work in Progress



Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

A Little Bookish Miscellanea

2017-09-22T11:00:00-05:00

I'm on the home stretch of Jane Gardam's Bilgewater, and it is So good. All those readers who 'virtually' pushed the book into my hands--thank you. You were right. It will easily top my best of reads list later this...



A Few Good Detectives: Thursday Thirteen

2017-09-21T09:00:00-05:00

I've not had a chance to have a proper look at the book yet, but I brought home from the library The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books by Martin Edwards last week. It covers only the first half...



Teaser Tuesday: A Cold Day for Murder

2017-09-19T09:00:00-05:00

Do you ever start reading a book and like the characters so much, or are so intrigued by them as they seem like they could be so real that you wish they could walk off the page and into real...



Beautiful Animals, Lawrence Osborne

2017-09-18T10:00:00-05:00

Sometimes it is the most exotic and beautiful locales that present some of the most sinister locations for the darkest of crimes. And sometimes what begins with seemingly the very best of intentions to help someone else that a crime...



A Ready for the Weekend Mishmash

2017-09-15T09:00:00-05:00

I've been lulled into a false sense of being in an endless summer as despite it being mid-September yesterday our temperatures here were just a few degrees shy of 100F. I should revel in the summer sunshine and warmth, right?...



Without You, There is No Us, Suki Kim

2017-09-14T11:00:00-05:00

Last summer I saw a really interesting documentary film about life in North Korea called Under the Sun. North Korea is a place I don't know much about other than what I see in the news, which of late has...



My Own Anticipated Fall Book List

2017-09-13T09:00:00-05:00

The Millions has a most desirable (and with a very literary slant) second half of the year anticipated book list. I have one, too. Perhaps not quite so literary in all cases, but to me these all looks highly appealing...



Peach Melba & Six Bedrooms: Short Stories

2017-09-12T09:30:00-05:00

I guess when it comes to short stories you just have to make a commitment to read them. Either you (and by 'you' that really means 'me') choose to pick a random story (like the weekly New Yorker short story...



A Few Bookish Add-ons & Other Notes

2017-09-08T13:00:00-05:00

Are there any Martha Grimes/Richard Jury fans out there? Does it matter if I read her detective novels out of order? I have read some of Emma Graham novels (in order and I do mean to get back to those...



The Strays by Emily Bitto

2017-09-07T11:00:00-05:00

Only one book so far under her belt, and I can see why Emily Bitto's The Strays has won numerous awards. How do you follow up a novel like this, and more importantly when will she publish another? Bitto's debut...
