What did I read last week?
Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith: I posted my review of this terrific mystery this past week.
Emma by Alexander McCall Smith: Another Jane Austen retelling, done! My review is here.

And then… I found myself with time to spare in the neighborhood of my favorite used book store, and just by coincidence, had a big old store credit in my hand that was crying to be used! I treated myself to a few books I’ve been wanting to read plus copies of a few that I’d read as library books:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher: I finally decided to sit down with this massive, 600+ page book, and I’m loving it so far!
Now playing via audiobook:
Wow, is this good! I’m at about the 55% mark, and I’m thoroughly hooked… plus, I got over my initial annoyance at the narrator’s accent and now I feel like it’s part of the story.
A big shout-out and hurray for my book group! After reading and discussing two chapters per week for the past year and a half, we’re down to the final week, with discussions of the book’s two epilogues! What a long and marvelous trip it’s been.
So many book, so little time…
