I needed a refresher before digging in to the second installment (which I didn't decide until I was ~25% in to the sequel—oops!). I enjoyed it as much (at least nearly as much) as my first reading. I've restarted the sequel.

Good book but not so sure about the audio narration. I could always tell which people the narrator didn't like because she gave them aggressively annoying voices 😅

Day 5 of #bookadventcalendar This is billed as hilarious, which I will definitely need to lighten my mood/anxiety when my to do list is still long and Christmas is getting ridiculously close. @LeahBergen

Shockingly I‘m the first to review this 2002 geology book on Big Bend National Park (far west Texas along the Rio Grande). The area is geologically bewildering. The book, a roadside geology, is crazy detailed but answered a lot of my questions. One lesson is that this area is far far more complex than I realized, the other is that geologists have actually worked a heck of a lot of this out. (Picture is mine)

Lcsmcat Geology in the west can be really in your face. We had fun exploring it with our kids when we lived in Utah. 2w
Crazeedi That is a gorgeous photo 2w
Graywacke @Lcsmcat yeah, so true. Utah is a lot of awesome geologically. Mountain, canyons, arches, desert exposures, salt lakes, ancient salt basins controlling modern drainage (ok, the last might reveal some my own specific interests...) 2w

BarbaraBB So very beautiful 😍😍 2w
Cathythoughts Wow ! Nature is beautiful 2w
batsy That picture is stunning 👌🏽😍 2w
Theaelizabet Beautiful picture! 2w
ljuliel Nice photo. I always pictured Texas as being mostly flat, but I‘ve never been there so I just have to picture places in my head that I‘ve not been to. 1w
Graywacke @BarbaraBB @batsy @Theaelizabet 👍 @Cathythoughts yeah, especially here, but yes 1w
Graywacke @ljuliel 🙂 Well, Houston (east of Flatonia - a real place) is really flat. And so is all of south, east, most of north, and, despite some elevation and a few huge canyons, most of northwest Texas. But in the middle (Austin, San Antonio) is Hill Country and in this far of corner are actual mountains. (Guadalupe & Davis Mtns and in Big Bend where the Rockies and mostly buried Ouchita Mountains come together - making a geological mess of things) 1w
ljuliel I guess I pictured all of Texas looking like the photos in the Lonesome Dove miniseries ! 😂. It seems like most of them were flat, dry and brown with very little vegetation. Thank you for the explanation. 1w
Graywacke @ljuliel That‘s really funny that the miniseries defines Texas. 🙂 ... I finally read Lonesome Dove earlier this year, and actually, I believe there are no mountains in that book! 1w

If you haven‘t had the pleasure of reading Attica Locke books I highly recommend her Highway 59 series. #wintergames

This novel is about “... the ways race defined so much about Lark, Texas, especially in terms of love, unexpected, and the family ties it created.” (p. 289)

Darren Matthews, fighting suspension, returns to rural Texas and finds himself questioning his ongoing his role as a black Texas Ranger.

Great mystery, great twists. Texas becomes a character in the story. I‘m rushing out to grab Ms Locke‘s back list — the woman can really write!

Liatrek She is amazing! 3w
