After last week’s large incoming batch, things are settling down now. The two books this time are both the result of FFB posts.
I took an inventory last week and found 11 books partly read. So I’ve done it again, started way more than I finish. It’s time to work on eliminating that pile before starting anything new. Also, in an effort to trim the book budget, I’ve dumped all the pre-orders, wish list books and books in the A-zon cart. My plan, you’ve heard this before, is to read more, buy (and keep) less.
Death’s Bright Dart by V.C. Clinton-Bradley [Ostara Publishing, 2009 trade paperback, new] – mystery – first published in 1964, UK – There have been two reviews books by V.C. Clinton-Bradley in the last 4-6 weeks in the Patti Abbott-hosted Friday Forgotten Books. The chances are infinitesimally small of that happening, but it has, and now here’s a third mention. Obviously a hot author! <grin> Part of the Cambridge Crime series, this thin mystery looks like it will be a great change of pace.
The Linnet’s Tale by Dale C. Willard [Scribner 2002 trade paperback, illustrated by James Noel Smith, used] – children’s fiction – I can’t resist a book like this, every once in a while it’s just the ticket to entertain and relax with. Great reviews.
