Well, Cyntihia, I think this was an okay book but not a great one. It is an easy read but I would say that there are a lot of books out there that might be better. Personally, I like the Nevada Barr books. On the positive side, this was not a mystery with a lot of gory scenes, something that I don't really appreciate. But, the character development left something to be desired. I guess that my feelings are best summed up by telling you that I could not even recall the plot just now and had to go check a description of it at Amazon to remember enough to write this to you.
This whole "following/follower" business is so wierd. We used to request "friendship" and with that you got to send a little message introducing yourself or explaining what you liked or were intrigued by the other person's shelf or comments on a group or whatever. Now you just click "follow." LOTS of people complained but it's stayed the same. Ah, well. Shelfari seems to be travelling the "twitter" or "facebook" road. (I'm not on either of those sites, so can only go by what people have reported.)
As for the books I read .... my preference is for literary fiction, but I'm playing the "Tag it to the Max" game over on Play Book Tag group and am stretching to include lots of different genres this summer. I've had company from out of state so my reading is slowed down in these last two weeks of the game. But it seems that all the players are slowing down. Just getting "reading fatigue" I think. I read 37 books in July! I'm at 22 books finished for August, so far.
Hi! Welcome to Shelfari. I love Santa Fe, though I haven't been there for decades. We're enjoying perfect weather in Milwaukee right now. Sure it won't last, but it was good for a visit from my family this past week, so I can't complain (and we could use some rain). Love your avatar!
