Sandy- Second street sounds really good.  I put it on my wish list.  Thanks!  I was looking for another engaging series.

Hey gals!  Just dropping by to tell you about a book that I just finished.  Second Street Station by Lawrence H. Levy.  An amazing historical mystery set in the late 1800's.  This is a bit of a change-up from my usual cozy mystery, but, I loved it!  Female protagonist, interesting historical facts and great storyline.  I encourage you to check it out.

Can't beat Amelia Peabody, Ellen! I recently read another early Elizabeth Peters book, The Night of Four Hundred Rabbits. I could deal with its being dated (early 1970s), but it was just too depressing for words. I only skimmed the last third of the book to get it done.

Glad you struck gold at the sale.  I've a stack of books I want to read but have been too busy to settle into anything.  I relistening to Amelia Peabody's adventures.

The books from the sale at the local library, were all from one estate, I believe. Her name and some times the receipts from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc... were still in the books. Her house must have been as full of books as mine is. There were literally thousands. I have already began to read some of them.

     I checked out the first of Gail Carriger's Alexia books and it seems like fun, I enjoyed the Sophronia one's I have read.

What a haul!  Wonder where they got all the book from.

Hilarious, Sandy!

That is too bad about the book club, Janet, so many good things get spoiled by one rude, thoughtless, person.

I listened to the latest Flavia, too, Ellen, and agree Jayne is just Flavia, and I adore the way she voices the characters. I was quite saddened to hear that the narrator of the Louise Penny books passed away. I can't imagine another voice as Armand Gamache. And how does an English voice such as Hugh's sound right when he is supposed to be French Canadian..... Now I might just read that one and not listen to the audiobook, as I want to remember the characters voices the way he did them.

  My brother was in our local library last week when the librarian told him that there had been a huge donation of used books, and they were going to have a special sale, over the weekend. So we went together and there were tons of things and only a $1 a grocery sack! I know I am going to sound crazy but I bought 14 bags full of books, some on quilting and needlework, many mysteries, and some great non-fiction, too. I will be re-donating some of them as I look over them more carefully, but I couldn't resist grabbing anything that looked interesting. Now to uncover the table where I set them and get them into shelves if they will hold any more. :0)

Hey everyone!  I ran across a site that is well worth taking a look at.  Someone designed 65 fake book covers for librarians and their patrons to look at.  These are so funny!  If you want a good laugh, Google Professional Literature For Librarians.  Clicking the link will take you to the home page.  You'll see an arrow on the right side of the screen.  Click on that arrow and you'll be able to see all of the covers.  They really are a hoot!
