What Are You Reading?
What are you reading this weekend? I'm finishing up Carolyn Hart's last Death on Demand mystery, Walking on My Grave. There's something sad about reading a book when the author says she's wrapping up the series. And, it's sad to see Carolyn Hart and Margaret Maron, two of the masters of the traditional mystery, wrapping up their careers. Neither have said they're done writing. Maron said she's going to write short stories. And Carolyn Hart still has the Bailey Ruth books. But, it feels as if they're wrapping up. Granted, they've had long, distinguished careers, and they deserve some downtime - not on deadline, not going to bookstores and conferences. I'm just a little melancholy about it.
So, it's a rainy, blah weekend here. It's been rainy for over a week. I'm heading to a friend's house to watch movies. Are you huddled at home with a good book? Or, do you have decent weather? What are your reading or weekend plans?
