My two

Hardback: The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory - 16th century adventures of the Grey sisters. Jane's been executed and Katherine's taken over the first person narration. To be kept on my keeper shelves for a while on completion.

Kindle: Glass Houses by Louise Penny - 13th Armand Gamache mystery. As page-turning as I was expecting, can hardly put it down, not just for carrying-around, the Grey sisters wil probably be ignored for a while . . . . To be archived - and quite soon, I believe :-)

Well, I started it with my breakfast and finished it before bedtime, so, yes, it was archived very soon!!! Conscience, morality, justice and drugs - a lot to think about . . . . And no. 14 will no doubt bring further interesting developments . . . .
Something relaxing for the weekend next: Natural Born Readers by Victoria Connelly - also to be archived on completion

...and really enjoyed it ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14709934/ ), though as I mentioned in my review, it's looking like Three Pines is no longer "the little town that wasn't there" - entirely too many unpleasant people seem to know about it now!

Yes, it's getting to be the centre of the universe :-(
And there's certainly plenty of scope for the 14th book in the series!
Ruth remains one of my favourite characters - or two of them, if you count Rosa, which I do!

Finished it. The sort of easy reading I was expecting. The third visit to the Nightingale family, owners of village bookshops :-)
My next Kindle read will be another of my birthday downloads: A Column of Fire by Ken Follett, the third of his Pillars of the Earth series, following World Without End. Looks good!

The first day of the new month and I'm starting my next nonfiction, on loan from a friend who went to the school attached to the convent where Sister Agatha spent much of her life. The front cover says it's: The deeply moving true story of giving up a life of love and luxury in a single irresistible moment.

I've now finished this fascinating story from a fascinating period. It's good but it's not a page-turner and not one to love, just one to enjoy/appreciate.
Rather than resume the paperback I put to one side to read The Last Tudor, I think I'll concentrate on Ken Follett's A Column of Fire on the Kindle - it's too long, too appealing and too long-awaited to only carry around!

I'll keep it for reading at home where I can concentrate. For carrying around I've chosen The Cornish Short Story Collection by Fern Britton: The Stolen Weekend, A Cornish Carol and The Beach Cabin

A classic in the genre! :)

It's a fiction book about a middle-aged woman coming back to her childhood home. Will probably wild release it.

Almost done with this read and it will be heading back to the library when I am finished.

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins is next up. Also a library book.

Both The Association by Bentley Little and Plants vs. Zombies Volume 3: Bully For You (graphic novel) on Kindle, and then also Star Wars: Darth Plagueis by James Luceno on audio.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14679881/ ), an entertaining coming-of-age tale; I wanted to release this for Banned Books Week, but that means I have to scramble to finish it!

The Fo'c'sle ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14617894/ ), a children's-book adaptation of Henry Beston's wonderful Outermost House, about the year he spent in a tiny hut on the shore of Cape Cod. This'll be a very quick read, of course, and will probably go into one of the LFLs in town once I'm done.

Sort of 'stuck' in Atlantis, Mu and Lemuria, the chapter heading for where I am up to in

'Storia dei Luoghi e delle Terre Leggendarie' by Umberto Eco

Might give it a rest for a while methinks...

Profile Image
I am reading The Main Corpse, a mystery, and I will send it to a friend when Im done

Whistling Past The Graveyard by Susan Crandall. It will go back to the library where I got it when I'm done.

Who Needs Decaf? by Tanya Michaels http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6932670

probably will get wild released, maybe for the food&drink challenge

This one I picked up at a local thrift shop, because the title suited October's Tick-Tock challenge:

A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14721240/ )

So far I'm enjoying it. It's an unusual collection of loosely-linked short stories, ranging from some woodworms' view of Noah and the Ark to an in-depth look at Géricault's painting "Raft of the Medusa". (There's even a fold-out reproduction of the painting in the middle of the book.)

The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler

The 9th in his Sam and Remi Fargo books. It will go back to the library.

...a book that I admit I didn't like and took me ages to finish : (

Now about to start a lighter read, Stormy Weather by Carl Hiaasen, a book ray. I haven't read anything by this author before, I hope I'll like it.

I'll probably pass it on to my mom when I'm finished.

New carrying-around book is One Day ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10459492/ ), which I picked up at a meetup. It's a look at the relationship between two people - as seen on a single day each year, for a couple of decades. At the start, they're both on the shallow side, but I was amused to read their respective innermost thoughts in contrast with what they said to each other - and from there, things seem to be looking up. Oh, they're both still frustratingly flawed, but I'm enjoying the course that the story is taking.

One of my favourite modern novels - and the film isn't bad either :-)

It will go back to the library.

Magnus and his friends set sail for the farthest borders of Jotunheim and Niflheim in pursuit of Asgard's greatest threat, Loki's demonic ship full of zombies.
