Finally...

a book I actually finished reading! "Young Jane Young" by Gabrielle Zevin. Good book, definitely different from her previous "The Storied Life of A.J. Firky"  Ms. Zevin has written more YA books than adult books and I am almost tempted to read her YA books except - no.

I was lucky enough to get The Storied Life of A.J. Firky as a free ebook from Prime Reading, and I waited about 6 weeks to borrow Young Jane Young from the public library and it was worth the wait. Both books are worthy of your attention.

A list of books I have NOT finished in the past 2 months:

The Child by Fiona Barton
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks by William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac
The Templars by Michael Haag
When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson
After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Two Nights by Kathy Reichs (not a Temperance Brennan novel)
Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny
The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson

I believe there were a few more unfinished books that I downloaded as free books from one of the many ebook apps I have...I could look them up but honestly I doubt they are worth the effort.

The view from my desk at 5:22pm on this Wednesday evening...
