Nonfiction: A Nun's Story by Sister Agatha with Richard Newman, reminiscences of a nun in her 80s who's living out her days in the convent she headed for years, the Bar Convent in York, recommended for coffee/tea and a look around if you're in the city - first published in 2017

Novel: A Column of Fire by Ken Follett, the third in the Kingsbridge series, this one comes forward another 200 years into the 16th century - published in September 2017

Carrying around on the Kindle: The Cornish Collection by Fern Britton, marketed as a collection of three short stories but, as they each have several chapters, they're more like novellas - individually from 2014 and 2015, omnibused together in 2016.

And finally I do! It's In This Grave Hour by Jacqueline Winspear, her 13th Maisie Dobbs mystery, which opens in September 1939 as World War II begins.

Finished it. I found it interesting - but with reservations!
A huge hardback next, a newly-released reservation I picked up from the library this morning: Queens of the Conquest by Alison Weir, the first of four histories looking at queens from 1066 to 1485, starting with Matilda of Flanders, wife of William the Bastard, but with the exception of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Isabella of France, as she's previously published separate biographies of them, both of which I've read and enjoyed!

A library book that I picked up on impulse. It looks like a good story.

I read the horse whisperer a couple years before I had even heard of bookcrossing, and I lift it in a hotel room with a note inside that included my email address and asked for others’ thoughts on the book.

Sounds like you were a BookCrosser before you were a BookCrosser! :)
