Whatcha reading? How ya doing?

It’s been a minute since I checked in here. I’ve been busy, I’ve been isolated, I’m writing, I’m urging everyone to register to vote and make your voice heard. And I’ve been reading. Here’s a recent crop of fantastic novels I’ve enjoyed.

What are you all up to? What’s on your reading list?

  1. Still getting used to this strange new world of home-working and video meetings. Currently reading a great ‘cosy crime’: The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra, by Vaseem Khan with Fifty-Fifty (the latest Eddie Flynn legal thriller) by Steve Cavanagh lined up next. But as ever, so many books, so little time!

    • Cozy (gotta go with the ‘Murican spelling) crime has been a lifeline for me these past months. I’ll check out the Khan novel.

      So many books. So, so many…

  2. Just finished Carl HIaasen’s Squeeze Me. Oh wow…. Sounds pretty true-to-life. In places….

    And now I’m reading Death in the Air (no, not Agatha Christie ). A look at the horrific smogs that plagued London forever, killing thousands with a fine impartiality. And how, in the 1950s, the government did what it could to ignore the truth (no, really?) and support the coal industry. Oh yeah, there’s a second plot woven in: the career of serial killer John Reginald Christie. (Both stories are intriguing, but the author, Kate Winkler Dawson somehow decided to combine two books into one.) https://www.katewinklerdawson.com/death-in-the-air/

  3. Actually re-reading the Jo Beckett series, along with the latest Vince Flynn, Total Power. And as the consulting biz is still slow, I’m working at the polls. Thanks for telling people to vote. I’m getting better (less tongue-biting) at saying, “Please vote; whomever you vote for, please come out and vote.” I feel strongly about my candidate choices, but much more strongly about the right to participate in free and fair elections. Why don’t we teach Civics in schools anymore? Or for that matter, on Capitol Hill?

    • Hear, hear!

      Thanks for reading (and re-reading!) and especially for working at the polls!

      • While we’re not obsessing on election coverage (ha), there’s a CNN commentator who looks like you, I think. While I know the majority of these folks I don’t know her name. I’m in GA, by the way, and we certainly live in interesting times.

  4. I’m wondering who that is…

    • Found it! CNN Anchor Erin Burnett. She’s changed over the years and her website head shot has super dark hair, but election coverage was close to some of your shots. And of course, she’s eloquent and wry as well. Thank the heavens not all of our investigative journalists seem to be “lying for a living”! (Ha! Journalism grad here who still believes in the integrity of good investigative work — and who appreciates sharp and engaging fiction without confusing the two!)
