So, I have many of my own books with bookmarks, but they have all been relegated to the bottom shelf of my night stand while I keep one step ahead of the library due date tigers. I am energetically reading:
- The Private Patient, by PD James. I really like the fine spotlight James puts on each character in turn.
- Where Men Win Glory, by Jon Krakauer. The is the second book he's written about a dead young man; in this case Pat Tillman is vibrantly alive until he gets shot.
- Pink Brain, Blue Brain by Lise Eliot. Boys and girls aren't THAT different after all. I'm on the preschool chapter, which doesn't resonate that much because my boys never did the girls-are-different thing. Of course, they never played much with dolls, either.
- Promise of the Flame, Sylvia Engdahl. Another too-talky book about psychic people creating a new society. A bit too repetitive for me to love.
- Blaze of Memory, by Nalini Singh. Still don't think I'll like this one.
- Positive Discipline, by Jane Nelsen. Got to keep up with my homework. I'm actually liking this one a lot; it helps me keep my cool when all around me are losing theirs.
One last list: Books I Have Finished This Week.
- Blood Memories, Barb Hendee. Vampire book.
- Huntress, anthology. Not recommended.
- Who is Stealing the Twelve Days of Christmas?, Martha Freeman. Gentle kidlit mystery.
- Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat. Lynne Jonell. Lots of fun.
- The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, M.T. Anderson. Silly with deep spots.
- Stormbreaker, Anthony Horowitz. James Bond, Jr. pastiche, with less racism.
- Good Poems, ed. Garrison Keillor. I found nine keepers.
- The Drunkard's Walk. Leonard Mlodinow. Captivating book about randomness and probability and life.
