Whenever I have nothing to read or can't decide what to read, I fall back on my Nero Wolfe books.

You obviously have excellent taste. I love Rex Stout. Did you know that yesterday was Archie Goodwin's birthday? It was just mentioned in passing in one of the books -- can't remember which one.
I have been reading Victoria Thompson's Gaslight Mysteries series, set in turn of the century New York. And I was so intrigued by the blurb on one of our members' books here that I bought it and am about halfway through. Thanks, Al.

I missed Archie's birthday? What kind of an awful fan am I! I'm putting it on my calendar for next year. I did spend quite a bit of time tending my orchids yesterday so hopefully, that counts.

I'm sure it does. It was when Archie was pulling out a wallet or something and saying it was a gift from Wolfe last October 23, "and I didn't even know he knew when my birthday was."

Ah, yes. I think it was a card case. Now I have to reread the whole series just to find it. Such a sacrifice.  :hehe

My favorite is "The Doorbell Rang". Who but Wolfe could beat the FBI into submission?
I've also been reading Edward Marston's Nicholas Bracewell mysteries. I have to say the mystery part of them isn't that great, but the Elizabethan theater setting is intriguing and I like the characters.

Yes, I always recommend that one. Another favorite is The Mother Hunt. I also love the Zeck trilogy especially the final one. And The Rubber Band ...  :help ... I have to stop now.

Good memories about the Nero Wolfe books...   :clap:  There are some audio versions available on Scribd, maybe I'll dive back in again soon.  I have a lot of them in print already, but audio can offer a different take sometimes.  I've noticed I do NOT enjoy romance in audio format, but some fiction, and lots of non-fiction, I like a lot.  It just depends what I'm in the mood for.

I had all of them in paperback but they were so old, some of them were priced at 50c and 75c. It was time to toss them. That hurt. But I've got them all on my Kindle.

For me, audio depends a lot on the narrator.

I'm listening to A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Charles Dickens. Nick Offerman is the narrator and he's doing a wonderful job. My grandson actually came out of his room and asked me if it was Nick Offerman. Apparently, Offerman voices a character on one of his games.

Do you know, I think I've read all of Bryson's books and that's the only one I didn't especially like?  :icon_rolleyes:
If you haven't already read it, I can recommend his autobiography, "Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid", which is a wonderfully nostalgic (and funny) look at America in the 1950s.

It's only the second of BB's I've read (the first was A Short History of Nearly Everything) so maybe I don't have so many books of his to compare to, but I have to say I like it so far!

Thank you for the recommendation  :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em

Last night I finished A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers. Such a lovely read! Not much action or drama, but some excellent characterization. It also filled out the universe Chambers created in Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. I'm hoping to start on the next novel in this universe, Record of a Spaceborn Few, in the next few days.

I just finished Patterson's Texas Ranger. The only Patterson books I ever read previously were a couple of the Alex Cross series. I dropped them when they had the "serial killer who can't be killed and keeps coming back" trope. However, I like Westerns, and there aren't enough decent ones around, so even though I prefer historical ones and this is contemporary, I gave it a try.

It pulled me right through the story all right. However, I was pretty sure of the bad guy halfway, and disappointed that the MC was a macho jerk who never should have been in law enforcement to start with.

Got it from the library. If I bought, I'd be mad at myself.

Yesterday I finished Becky Chambers' Record of a Spaceborn Few. It wasn't as tightly focused in terms of plot and characters as the other two books in her universe were. Yet it was still an intriguing exploration of the culture she's created. I did like how she tied the lives of the characters she introduces together. I hope she writes more in this universe.

Pondering what I want to read next...

I'm currently reading My Dear Hamilton about Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton.

Just finished The Choir Director Wore Out, the last of the liturgical mysteries by Mark Schweitzer. Closing Credits by Martin Turnbull is the last of the Garden of Allah series.

Both series are highly recommended for different reasons and I was kind of sad to see them end, but both authors did a really nice job of wrapping things up.

I am currently reading Realm Shift by Alan Baxter. Interesting read, but can get a bit wordy at times.

I just finished reading Time Travel For Love and Profit by Jeff Abugov. Good story, but the ending seemed a little contrived. Kind of like the end of Ashton Kutcher's Butterfly Effect.

I read that and Grisham's "The Confession" back to back.  I always enjoy Grisham, although being non-fiction, "The Innocent Man" was not terribly enjoyable.  The whole time I'm hearing "REALLY?!?!?!?" in my head.  Then I read Krakauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven" shortly after.  Then I quit reading for a bit.

Currently reading this one...





Dr. Block is a rabble-rousing anarchist and takes a lot of flak for his views, even from other anarchists. Personally, I find his perspective fascinating.

If you're interested to see what's in the book, here's the PDF.

The Bermondsey Poisoner, a Victorian mystery.

It's sixth in the series so the relationships were kind of confusing at first but everything was briefly explained. No long, rambling thoughts, so that was good.

 I loved this book.  After I read it, I found out that Vaught is a practising neuropsychologist who works with teens and that made perfect sense. It's about Jersey Hatch, a boy recovering from a severe head injury. As the plot unfolds you discover, along with him, how the injury happened (he has partial memory loss and is confused about how he got hurt).  Jersey's arc is particularly satisfying as he figures out how the injury has changed him, and how people see him now that he is so different -- a hard-core version of what happens to all teens as they have to learn how they are as they turn into adults.  He has a low-key, stubborn, patient courage that I've not often seen depicted in fiction. The story deals with teen suicide and the harsh, judgemental attitudes people have about suicide, but it's funny and wry too. A powerful story that was never preachy or didactic. The writer has compassion for all the characters, even the not-so-likeable people. 


Life in a Fishbowl by Lev Vlahos was good enough to make me read it to the end, but severely flawed. A fragile and insecure girl discovers that her father has a brain tumour and only a few months left to live, and on top of thiat, he has signed himself and his family over to be a reality show.  So they have to live out the last weeks of his life in a blaze of publicity with no privacy at all. There are many characters, including the brain tumour itself, which has a point of view role in the story.

I'm pretty certain the author loves Roald Dahl! The story has a Dahly feel about it, but doesn't quite convince. Several of the plot threads (there are many) feel like things that should have been removed or combined. The baddies (there are many of them) are outrageously, cartoon level bad without any redeeming qualities, and I get a sense that the author finds good, decent people boring and so doesn't really know how to write them.  That said, the core plot, in which the teen girl main character turns the tables on the evil reality show director with the help of her Russian pen-pall is gripping and deeply satisfying. And the brain tumour's point of view story is oddball and quirky, but it works.

On the nose, not particularly subtle, but interesting enough.

I got several books for Christmas, so it's more what I will be reading over the next few weeks. I just finished the final Bracewell mystery, "The Princess of Denmark", and I'm working on "The Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England" by Ian Mortimer. Next it will be John LeCarre's "A Legacy of Spies" and another Victoria Thompson gaslight mystery.
Who knows -- I may even get some writing done at some point.

Finally read something I enjoyed, rather than a book I was meh about. Yesterday I finished Year Zero by Rob Reid. The premise is that aliens have been listening to our music for years and not paying for it. A lawyer is roped into helping solve the matter, and of course there are aliens who don't want Earth to keep producing good music. It wasn't as funny as I thought it might be, but it was an entertaining read.

I just finished The Killing at Kaldaire House. It was better than I thought it would be, but then I realized the author, Kate Parker, also wrote the Victorian Bookshop Mysteries. I enjoyed that series, too.

Back to Kaldaire House. The MC, Emily Gates, is a milliner with ties to a notorious gang of thieves and swindlers, although she's not one of the gang. But at least she doesn't think she can solve a murder because she makes great hats. She does use her family connections to solve the murders so she has some connection with the law or I should say, the lawless.

I'm currently reading Alice in Jeopardy by Ed McBain. It's the first McBain book I've ever read. It's good and I like the present tense used. I guessed the ending from the blurb alone, so I'll find out if I was right.
