I'll probably hold onto it for awhile and see if it fits any particular book box or release challenge. If it sits around too long I'll put it in a LFL.

3 for me
On going nonfiction: The World of Samuel Pepys by Robert and Linnet Latham, extracts from the famous diary which I've been working through for ages, just a few pages at a time with long gaps in between - if/when I finish it, I'll probably leave it in the OBCZ at the pub where the York BookCrossers meet.

For carrying around on my Kindle, I've just started My Sisters and Me by Sinead Moriarty which is suitable light and frivolous after I gave up on my previous novel that was dragging me down somewhat - will be archived in the usual fashion.

My next paperback novel will be Valentine Grey by Sandi Toksvig, which I've chosen but not started, the only book currently in my possession that was registered by another BookCrosser - don't yet know where I'll release it, largely depends on how much I enjoy it!

I've read a couple of chapters but Ms Valentine is now in abeyance while I read The Cruellest Month by Louise Penny. I'm re-reading the Armand Gamache novels in order and have just this taken this third one out of the library where I'd had it on reserve! Can't wait to get started! These books are just as thrilling the second time around! Naturally, it will be returned to the library when I've read it.

Finished it. Couldn't put it down. Even though it's was reread I couldn't stop turning pages. Just as gripping as before!
So, now it's back to Valentine Grey.

 

So, now it's back to Valentine Grey.

No, change of plan. Poor VG will have to wait a little longer as another of my library reservations has come in this morning so I'll be starting that next: Death of a Wine Merchant by David Dickinson, the 9th of his Lord Francis Powerscourt mysteries.
Also this morning I've read an e-short/novella, The Grandmother's Tale by Alison Weir, the grandmother of the title being Anne Boleyn's paternal grandmother, thinking back following the death of her son Thomas, associated with the Six Tudor Queens series.

And it's finished and ready to go back to the library when it came! I do enjoy this series!
So, all being well, Valentine G will come into her own over the weekend . . . . at last . . . .

After several weeks and dipping in and out, I've finally finished it. Feeling quite pleased with myself :-)

I just finished a reread of the last two "real" HP books and finally got the courage to read this one. So far, it's interesting...

Will likely keep it in PC when I'm done with this read.

 

My mom loaned this to me, so it will go back to her when I'm finished.

 

In Greek. I found this book in an Athens OBCZ, took it with me to Delphi and it'll probably travel further west to support a newly-found BC community in Patra.

I'm at the very start of the book and I usually have a love-hate relationship with this author. I'll see how it goes. Some of his books are translated on other languages, I don't think this one though...

Natchez Burning by Greg Iles
Penn Cage the Mayor of Natchez, Mississippi is facing the possibilty that his father has committed a crime both in present day and in the past during the worst of the civil rights era. I'll be passing this along to a friend when I'm finished with it.

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
Luther and Nora Krank are skipping all the to do's of Christmas and going on a cruise instead. It's a library book.

 

by Kevin O'Hara. One of my oldest ABC TBRs, picked because it met Plum's challenge. I will probably make it available for the ABC VBB.

Nancy

 

Which I bought just because I liked the cover and turns out to be a suspenseful and very well written novel. And yes, I have plans for this book. As soon as I finish reading it, I'll give it to my son to wild release it in Canada by the end of the month.

 

...including:

Kinky Gazpacho: Life, Love & Spain ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14721239/ ) - fits the Wine+Food challenge as well as The Places You'll Go. (I chose it almost entirely for the title, but it looks like a good read so far!)

From Stonehenge to Las Vegas: Archaeology as Popular Culture ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14829875/ ) - the Places You'll Go challenge, obviously, and Four Elements (via the embedded "stone" in the title).

The Woods ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14617856/ ), a graphic novel - it fits the Four Elements challenge, and looks like a nice creepy read.

[My area has a big snowstorm forecast for tomorrow, so I may spend much of the day curled up with cat, cocoa, and books, watching the snow fly!]

 

Starting this today. Its ARC that I accidentally put someplace other than my TBR pile...just discovered it and decided to read it, review it and RABCK it quickly. I've had it since November. Oops. lol.

 

So still reading http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9086070

But have added Maurizio de Giovanni's "Darkness for the Bastards of Pizzofalcone" (3rd in that series). It's an inter-library loan, and therefore cannot be renewed, so it went to the top of the pile.

"Black Tudors" and "Shadow of Night" are also library books, and will be returned there.

"The Lais of Marie de France" will probably remain on my shelves.

 

A thriller with graphic violence in places which made me squirm a bit!. Not my usual genre,but couldn't put it down.
Just started Bread and Chocolate by Philippa Gregory...a collection of short stories far removed from her well known Tudor series. An enjoyable 'pick me up,put me down' book. Perfect for easy bedtime reading. I will save this for my friend daffodil-2 for when I next see her...I think she might like this.

Staying in my permanent collection as all Maeve Binchy's books, but I'll try to find a copy to register on BC and share with the world : )

 

The Chocolate Promise by Josephine Moon

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13261093

It will be taken along to the April meet-up.

 

I have only about 100 more pages in this library book which has taken me a quite a long time to get this far in the book.

 

The Mountain Story ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14665085/ ), which qualifies for the 4 Elements release challenge and is also on several wishlists; not sure if I'll RABCK it or wild-release it.

 

I loved all the previous Tales of the City books until I read the one before this one, which I was really disappointed in. So I put off this book and started it without high expectations. And now I'm so glad I finally got around to it because I'm very much enjoying it. This one is set some twenty years after the previous book, and is the first to told in first person narration, by the title character. I'm zipping through this one quite happily!

 

It will go back to the library.

In the final book of the Wing and Claw trilogy Raffa and his allies prepare to face the Chancellor’s army in battle...but Raffa is a healer not a fighter. Can his skills for apothecary bring a tolerable resolution to a seemingly impossible fight?
