What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz")

I definitely recommend it! The book is narrated by the younger sister observing all her older siblings' lives and romances, and it's such good fun. :D

I'm currently reading The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer, and it is absolutely delightful. I don't know how I've missed out on Georgette Heyer for so many years.
That does sound good! I added it to my Amazon wish list so I won't forget the title.

Georgette Heyer is a great author! I always intend to read more of her books. One of these days. You clearly have good taste in books, Petrichor. :D

Just listened to 4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOO!

Other places are okay
And some are fine
But as far as hometowns go
Well, Odyssey is mine
Oh, it's the place to be
I'm sure you will agree
Have you ever been to Odyssey?

I've been working my way through The Legacy of The Force star wars series. I normally adore star wars, but this series has been a lot more soap opera-y than I like. I do like the glimpses into Mandalorian culture and language though. I'm currently on book 6: Inferno.

I have not had time to do much reading lately. However, in my spare time I did recently read the newest book in the Last Chance Detectives book series, Revenge of the Phantom Hot Rod, which I thought was really good! I also recently read What Money Can't Buy, by Michael Sandel, another good book. At some point I will finish reading The Friendly Dickens, by Norrie Epstein which I started a while ago.

I recently started "Wonder Dogs: True Stories of Extraordinary Assistance Dogs" by Maureen Maurer and it already has me tearing up! The stories so far as incredibly sweet and moving....and I'm not even a dog person.

I'm starting "To Disguise the Truth" by Jen Turano. It's the third in her Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency series. I found the first two books okay but not amazing...but I like to read all the books in a series unless it's really bad, and I already bought it, so I might as well read it. I might take a break and not buy her next books.
