This week was a blur of classes, meetings, and errands. It will be good to have a day where I don’t have to go anywhere.
This week on the blog:
- Finished my review of Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island from a writer’s perspective.
- Listened to Lee Child’s interview about his newest book, Night School.
- Participated in Book Beginnings on Fridays with Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder.
What’s coming up:
Karen and I are going to start discussing Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder for The Bestseller Code 100 challenge.
Books currently reading:
After plowing through the challenge books this week, I needed something comfortable and easy to read. I picked up the first Nero Wolfe mystery, Fer-de-Lance* by Rex Stout.
I devoured the Nero Wolfe books when I was younger. Reading them again from a writer’s perspective opens up a whole new level of appreciation.
Do you have a favorite book or author you grab when you want a fast, comfortable read?

Pairing travel and reading seems like a natural thing. BookRiot has some suggestions this week for reading locally when traveling. In a shameless plug, I’ve been keeping a (rather neglected) list of children’s books for families traveling through the states. Someday, I’d love to see it expanded to other countries.
