Okay, I cheated and pushed through 2 library books before finishing "The River of Doubt." I always feel pressured to read the library books as they become available, and I hate making other folks wait, because I know how anxious I am to get through my library list.
"Rusty Nail" by JA Konrath was a wonderful, funny, scary read. I love Jack Daniels, the female lead character. This is the 3rd in the series, and I cannot wait for the next one. She is such a smart ass, and the fact that she is over 40 is another plus. I can't resist a dame close to my age.
"Gone" by Jonathon Kellerman is so far into the Alex Delaware series I can't count that high. I like his books because they are thought provoking, and always a good story line. Acting, murder, and Hollywood, can't be all bad, right?
I am going to try and read two at the same time, one upstairs and one downstairs. I usually read straight through, but I see so many others reading more than one, that I need to give it a go. So it will be "River of Doubt" and "Mockingbird; A portrait of Harper Lee". Keeping my fingers crossed, it may be a bumpy ride. I'd hate to confuse a genteel southern lady riding down the Amazon with the former rough rider as Truman Capote's best friend.
