Lazy Saturday continues...
Taking a break from Scandinavian crime thrillers to get started on this month's book club selection for the library where I work. It's looking like a perfect read for a soggy PNW morning.
I tore through a couple of the Jack Caffrey series while I was home with a bug, but I've lost steam in the past week. Less to do with the books, I think, than a general inability to concentrate. But this is nice: post drumline practice, waiting on some friends with a book and blackberry cider.
I've been on this British crime thriller jag for weeks, finding Bolton's Lacey Flint and Hayder's Jack Caffrey series addictive escapes, like potato chips, fed by the ability to download them from the library's Overdrive site. Discovered yesterday that OD only offers the first 2 Hayder books in Kindle and the Bolton books all have a waiting list. Since I left my book club book at work before my long weekend, I broke down and bought this one.
Reading in bed again with cats and tea. I've been enjoying this book a lot when I have the time and mood to read it. It slows me down, in a good way, this meandering and thoughtful view of an unlikely subject (hover flies). Unfortunately I was blind-sided by the Lacey Flint thriller crime series by Sharon Bolton and have been so distracted by that. Unfortunate only in that I lead a book discussion of Fly Trap this Monday night (1/2 way though)
