Meowmi recently came across a cozy-style mystery series featuring a retired English art teacher named Miss Seaton who gets into all kinds of ridiculous scrapes and comes out smelling like roses. She's delighted by the series & has read 4 or 5 of the books so far. She was at the library today looking for another one, but no luck at that branch - they aren't recent publications & she's been having to order them from the main library. Has anyone else read this series?
While at the library today, she picked up a the collected Father Brown stories by G.K. Chesterton. She's read a couple of them in the past, but this will let her read them all . . . unfortunately she started reading the preface to the edition, which essentially spoiled the endings of the first two stories before she realized what was happening & stopped reading it!
A nonfiction book she read a week or 2 ago was "Iron and Silk" by Mark Salzman (she thinks that's it - doesn't want to disturb felines on the lap to go check it out) - a very interesting memoir by a young Yale grad who went to China for a couple of years to teach English. It was featured in the library as the subject of a book discussion, which Meowmi was unfortunately unable to attend.
And the next book for her book club, which she hasn't started reading yet, is "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer. She hears it's quite good.
Purrs & Happy Reading to all!
