My reviews this week include Born Standing Up by Steve Martin (our March pick for my library book discussion group).
Jen's Book Thoughts is hosting Detectives Around The World Week starting today. I'll be participating on April 16 with my review of Mahu Vice by Neil Plakcy. It's going to be a good week for mystery fans so check out all the reviews and special events planned by Jen.
Whenever I'm on the way to the beach, I always stop at Hanapepe Library where there's a free outdoor bookshelf. I love a good book find. This week I picked up a first edition of Cheaper By The Dozen printed in 1948. With the old books I'm discovering, I plan to join the Dogeared Reading Challenge for "worn out, and beat up books." It's hosted by DogEar Diary.
Normally I only read one book at a time but currently have two going.
The first is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (did you know she was only in her 20's when the book was written?). If it goes well over the next few days, I plan to join a read along for the novel hosted by Jill at Fizzy Thoughts.
The other book I'm reading is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. I love the writing but the pace has been slow. Maybe it's me?
Finally, don't forget that my contest ends Sunday night, April 11, for a new copy of The Girl Who Chased The Moon.
Wishing all of you Aloha from across the Pacific.
