What Are You Reading?
It's National Read a Book Day! For this Thursday group, every day is National Read a Book Day, isn't it? What are you reading today?
I'm going to start a book at the airport while I'm waiting to fly to St. Petersburg for Bouchercon. I can tell you two of the books I packed. (Nothing like packing books to go to a crime fiction conference.) I have Juliet Blackwell's The Lost Carousel of Provence about a photographer who explores a chateau and its antique carousel to find its history, and might reunite a family by bringing the past to light. I also have the ARC of a March release, When All Is Said by a debut author, Anne Griffin. Griffin is an Irish writer, and her title is a line in a song called "The Parting Glass". It's the story of Maurice Hannigan who tells the story of his own life as he sits in a pub. In the course of one night, he orders five different drinks, and toasts five people who were important to his life. Irish, music, debut. I haven't started it, but this book might have been written for me.
What are you reading or listening to this week? I'll try to check in from the airport.
