Binge Reading

No matter how busy I am, I find time to read…last night, after many hours in the garden, I carried a drink out to the front porch and read well past sunset. And the book list grows: I’m a James Lee Burke fan and realized yesterday that I missed a couple Dave Robicheaux books. I’m getting caught up on Maisie Dobbs and really want to move forward with Bernard Cornwell’s Alfred series. These last three really cry out to be borrowed from the library and my public library has all of them in their catalog. Unfortunately, my library card has expired. I love the IDEA of the public library but have never been a very good patron. I like owning books and the digital age has only enhanced that desire. But, I’m not going to reread the above books so being able to get them for free makes a lot of sense. So, I shall make the trek this week.

Meanwhile, I have three books going right now. The literary book is Wallace Stegner’s Angle of Repose. It was a natural follow up to Ivan Doig and tells the story of Lyman Ward, who from the view of his own mortality, explores the life of his grandparents, particularly his grandmother who made the journey to the West in the name of love. It is beautiful in so many ways: lyrical prose, engaging story, deeply developed characters. I’m reading it slowly, a chapter each night before I fall asleep.

Then there’s the fluff…both came by way of Kindle daily deals. At least Death By A Honey Bee provides some insight into my latest hobby of beekeeping. It’s the first in a series by Abigail Keam. I share some similarities with the main character in terms of age and interests but I am hoping that she is wrong about the murderer since the mystery seems solved with more than half the book to go.

The second one is borrowed from the Kindle lending library and is set in Stanardsville, Virginia. Also the start of a mystery series by Ann Mullen, it’s called What You See. It has its moments and it’s always fun to read something regional.

These two are easy to pick up and put down so they are perfect for summer days when I need a coffee or tea break from gardening.

But now…it’s time to tend my own hives.

  23. The trick is to separate the good ones from the bad ones.
    I received a healing from the shamanic practitioner next and told her I could
    not stop crying after the other womans healing. Factors include genetics,
    very powerful environment influences, inactivity, and most
    important the ever changing need for extra nutrients responsible for growth and development.
