I decided to re-read the Temeraire series again, written by Naomi Novak. Now I'm anxious for her to finish up the next installment.
On my Nook, I'm reading the Whisperings paranormal mysteries (with a little romance).
If anyone would like the loan of any of the Craig Johnson books (Longmire), I have Any Other Name (the new one) plus several others. for the Nook. Sorry, I don't own a Kindle.

Don't know if there are any other baseball fans here, but I've been reading OUT OF MY LEAGUE by Dirk Hayhurst. It's a funny account of his attempts to reach the Majors as a pitcher. He also wrote THE BULLPEN GOSPELS, another terrific baseball book.

Currently reading the newest book from Laurien Berenson, Death of a Dog Whisperer. It's the latest installment in her Melanie Travis mystery series, and as always, involves dog shows and Standard Poodles.

I'm a Kathy Reichs fan of her Temperance Brennan series. I am currently finishing "Bones of the Lost" and already have "Bones Never Lie" to read next.

Just finished reading THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir. What a ripoff! At no point in nearly 400 pages do we see a single Martian! :lol: On the serious side, I enjoyed it. The main character had a snarky sense of humor which I liked. I will say I found it a tad hard to believe he didn't lose his cool more often. Considering the circumstances, it'd certainly be understandable! I don't care if Mark Watney is a trained astronaut. He's stranded on Mars with limited supplies and nobody on Earth knows he's alive. The man should be shitting bricks! I'm not a techie by any stretch so the scientific details of how he survives on Mars were a little lost on me. Still, the protagonist is an admitted Chicago Cubs fan so how could I not root for him? ;) TM is a pretty fast read. Only a need a few days to get through it. Very curious to see the film version though I must admit to being very disappointed that MAAAAAAAAAATT DAAAAAAAAMON was cast as Watney. If only they'd let me run Hollywood. :D

I finished a good one the other day, called The Coroner's Lunch by Collin Cotterill, set in 1978 Laos. The protagonist is a 72yr old doctor in an unfunded "lab". He gets help from friends, rather than techies, as well as the occasional spirit. It's strange & funny! I loved it.
Right now I'm reading some light cozy British mysteries by Marty Wingate "Birds of a Feather" series. Lots of info on birding in the British Isles.
