A Work in Progress

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

Teaser Tuesday: The Living Infinite


A new read (in celebration of the eclipse? . . . or do I need an excuse?). I could not resist. Europa Editions (whose front and backlists are like a reader's smorgasbord of delights) kindly sent me a review copy...

Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry


Flynn Berry's Under the Harrow is a disconcerting, unsettling kind of read, which when you consider it is a story of suspense and mystery is really a good thing. I was already impressed, as this is a first novel, by...

Dippable Books and Other Reading Notes


I'm not going to Colorado this year, but this is about the time I would normally go with my family, and I was thinking how serene being in the mountains and sitting by a river would be about now. I...

Teaser Tuesday: Under the Harrow


It's always hard to follow up a good mystery/suspense novel with a new book. I'm never quite sure what I am in the mood for until I have sampled a few other stories, and then there is the issue of...

My Holidays by Sylvia Smith


My Holidays by Sylvia Smith is one of the more curious books I have read in a long time. It is touted by reviewers on the book jacket as being ordinary and mundane yet compelling and compulsive at the same...

August 4: Weekend Reading Notes


I don't mind that this weekend is forecast rain, as it is also blissfully cool outside. I have turned off my AC and opened the windows and am thoroughly enjoying the relief from the heat. The weather has been wonky...
