Another pre-order I’ve been eagerly anticipating arrived Tuesday, plus I picked up some classical music.
The Long Way Home by Louise Penny [Minotaur Books August 2014, purchased new] – mystery novel. The latest Chief Inspector Gamache novel. I can’t overstate how much I love these!
Holst Cotwolds Symphony, Walt Whitman Overture Indra, Japanese Suite, A Winter Idyll by Ulster Orchestra, JoAnn Falletta [Naxos 2012 CD 8.572914, purchased new] – classical, English symphonic. I already have another recording of the Cotswolds Symphony, but wanted the other pieces on this one.
Moniuszko Overatures – The Haunted Manor, Paria, Halka, The Fairy Tale Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, Antoni Wit [Naxos 2014 CD 8.572716, purchased new] – classical, symphonic. I had none of this composer’s music before purchasing this one.
Respighi Brazil Impressions, La Boutique Fantasque Royal de Leige Philharmonic Orchestra, John Neschling [BIS 2014 super audio CD, purchased new]
I’m still reading the lengthy Inheritance Cycle of four books, Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance. As I said last time, these are 500-600 pages so reading the set is no small undertaking. I’ve now finished the first three and am taking a break before starting the last to read the new Louise Penny shown above, which I’m about 100 pages into.
Barbara has read The Heckler by Ed McBain, Target: Tinos and Mykonos After Midnight by Jeffrey Siger. His books are good as always, especially Midnight. She has just started another Lee Child/Reacher series book in an attempt to catch up there as well. Louise Penny’s newest soon.
What new books did you get, and what have you been reading?
