I'm reading my third Ruth Ozeki book this summer, All Over Creation. I love that her books take on BIG issues (like genetically modified food) in novel form.
I read The Drowned Man, by David Whellams, recently, and liked it. Good mystery. I have his earlier Walking Into the Ocean in my queue at home. The latter is the first in Whellams' Peter Cammon series.
I also just read my first Elizabeth George mystery, Careless in Red. She wrote all the Inspector Lynley books, of which Careless is one of the most recent. And I saw all the BBC Inspector Lynley TV series so I didn't feel the need to start at the beginning of the book series. I like her writing a lot, although Careless had too many tangential, unnecessary characters, making the book longer than it needed to be. Still, I'll read the next one.
A couple things are on my mind...but I think I'll save my philosophizing for next week.
Have a great weekend. It's beautiful this morning in my neck o' the woods and the temps are supposed to be in the low- to mid-70s for the next week anyway. I think summer has finally arrived on the North Coast. xo
