Non-fiction--not always my favorite genre
Finish The Last Child in the Woods--by Richard Louv --Well, it did find its way to my bedside, where it is still sitting untouched.
Finish the Arizona Highways book on photography--I forget the exact title and forget where it is but I will find it. Still among the missing. It will turn up and I will finish it eventually. I wonder if it is in hiding with my watch.
Both of these next two got some considerable attention. As I said, they are not the kind of thing you read from cover to cover, but they were very helpful in planning our trip in November.
The Back Roads from Arizona Highways--not to read in its entirety but to plan with.
Utah's National Parks --by Rod Adkison--do you see where we are going here?
Though I did not read this in its entirety, I did finish enough of it to be ready for the discussion.
Juvenile Fiction--It matters not that I am no longer active as a school librarian, I have grandchildren to advise and share with.
Peter and the Secret of Rundoon--by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Oh, yes--very good sequel. I am enjoying this series and so are my grandchildren.
Jenny Nimmo's new series-- I listened to the first of these--The Snow Spider-- on CD. Perhaps it is because I am not immersed in the enthusiasm of the kids at school for it, but I did not think it was a s good as her Charlie Bone series.
Adult non-mystery Fiction
The Fiery Cross--part of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
These are quite a departure for me, as I usually read mostly mystery.
Not only did I read this one, but finished the series and read on semi-related title from the same author. I think that there were two after The Fiery Cross.
Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs -- just invited to join a book club and this is the October book. I got started on this, and would have finished it had I been able to attend the book club meeting. But I was not and I could not well relate to the modern stories used to illustrate the Biblical bad girls.
Just added--9/25--Something from P.G. Wodehouse. Maybe I can find one I haven't read before--what a delight. Totally forgot about doing this. Well, maybe when I go to the library later.
Some of the Father Brown stories by G. K. Chesterton Well, I found one from the series that I had not had and read two and a half of the stories. Then DH took over the book, so I went on to something else.
Go back to one of the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries by Dorothy Sayers
Never got to this one.
However, I did read six Cat Who... books from Lillian Jackson Braun, four J. A. Jance mysteries --one each from two and two from another of her series. I do love her settings. As I was reading one, the characters had to go pick up the dad's truck from a certain Arizona rest area--we had just driven past it. And also Faye Kellerman's The Burnt House.
