Re: What are you reading?

Depending on your interests, I found a well written non-fiction book about the beginning of forensic toxicology.

The title is the poisoner's handbook by Deborah Blum.

Re: What are you reading?

I returned the latest Jack Reacher novel (Sentinel) to the library - unfinished.

sigh.... while I enjoy the novels I can no longer lose myself in the story - most start the same way & have the same plot .... he ends up in a small town where he fixes a major/national security issue.

now Repairmen Jack novels - the guy gets contacted to "fix" things


I am currently reading "The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop" by Fannie Flag. If you like Fannie Flag, I think you'll enjoy it.

Re: What are you reading?

I have struggled to read lately. I don't last more than a few pages before my mind wanders. I used to be able to read an entire book in one sitting.

Re: What are you reading?

The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher

It's creepy/suspenseful

Some of the lines make me laugh out loud -
