What I'm reading Wednesday...

I have been reading a LOT this week, but I am having a LOT of trouble uploading photos, so we'll see if I can get them all in this post.

Right now I'm reading Ladies With Options by Cynthia Hartwick.  Kind of cute, about a group of small-town women who begin an investment club and develop a lot of skills and a lot of luck.



I finished Before the Poison by Peter Robinson.  Composer makes good in Hollywood, is widowed, and moves back to his native England.  He buys a big old home, and becomes intrigued by the mystery of the former residents...a doctor who is poisoned, and his wife who was convicted for the poisoning and hung.



Also finished Precious Bones by Irina Shapiro.  Sixteenth century skeletal remains are found inside the walls of an old house. When the story hits the news, a viewer is overcome with the sense that she knows whose they were and how they got there.


And finished yet one more...All My Love, Samples Later by Craig Vetter.  Based on the WWII letters of the author's parents.  Another reminder of the importance of the handwritten letter...an art form that we are rapidly turning our back on these days.

  1. I like the sound of the "Precious Bones" book. Just the sort of story I like to read. I may see if I can get it online somewhere. Enjoy your reading.

  2. All those look good, putting them on my list. I'm reading The Absolutist now and listening to The Rules of Civility while I am sewing. I wish there were more time to read.

  4. I'm afraid I'm reading a lot of mindless drivel at the momment... I keep thinking that getting audio books would make wroking in the studio more interesting but then I might get distracted and stick my hand in the flame!
