I finished and enjoyed Doom with a View, 7th in the Psychic Eye mystery series by Victoria Laurie, featuring psychic Abby and her PI sidekick, Candice. I guessed the perpetrator before the big reveal, but that was okay because I was having so much fun watching the sparks fly between Candice and the skeptical FBI agent they were working with.
Dewey’s Read-a-Thon was productive for me. I started and finished a children’s chapter book called Sisters Against Slavery: A Story about Sarah and Angelina Grimke by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson. I read a lot of Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert, and then finished it on Sunday. I liked both and will write about them later in the week.
I gave up on Tribes by Seth Godin in favor of another book with a similar theme, Influencer: The Power to Change Anything by (deep breath) Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler. I saw in my Amazon feed that this group has a new book out about personal change, Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success, which I suspect will be good, too.
I’m reading and enjoying Nutrition Map by Yvonne Quiñones Syto. I suspect I’ll have that finished in time for next week’s Weekend Cooking meme.
My current fiction choice is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. I will have that completed in plenty of time for the April 22 chat that I learned about from Margot of Joyfully Retired: Come and Join Our Read Along. It’s a moving story about a time in history that is of interest to me, but I didn’t know as much about it as I thought I did.
What’s next? Good question. For fiction, I’ll go with General Winston’s Daughter by Sharon Shinn. I’m not sure what else I may pick up.
It looks like your doing some great reading. I’ve never heard of the mystery series but it sounds like great fun. I’m going to have to check it out. I’m trying to get to Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet for Margot’s read-along. It’s good to hear your getting something out of it, I can’t wait to start.
I’m really glad you are going to join the read-along. I’m enjoying that book too. You should know that you, among others, inspired me to join this Monday meme, at least every other week. It’s fun seeing what other people are reading.
The read-along sounds fun! I am glad to visit you today and will be sure to stop back next week.
Here’s my week: http://nisefunpages.blogspot.com/
Hotel On The Corner Of Bitter and Sweet hon my book clubs best book club book of the year award for 2010. I think it is an amazing story 🙂
I love the cover of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. I’ll be interested to hear what you think about it! I don’t know much beyond the very basic premise.
I have heard good things about The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet although I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. Enjoy!
