Elizabeth George (she's no Dorothy Sayers, but she entertains, and has an actual vocabulary)
- For the Sake of Elena
- In the Presence of the Enemy
- A Great Deliverance (Even though this is one of her earliest, I think that it is one of the best.)
- Missing Joseph (Also very good; has a lot of interesting stuff about marriage.)
- The River King
- Here on Earth
- Seventh Heaven
- Second Nature (I liked this one especially)
I read Melissa Bank's The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing because it was in a bag of books my mom gave me and that I had in my car and I wanted something to read during a break at work. It was surprisingly not super-terrible. I liked the first parts better than the later parts.
I'm reading The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris, because I have a weird desire to go here: New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur . Who knows why. Because it's cheap and nobody talks to you?
Oh, and I got some Dorothy Sayers, since I mentioned her. The Five Red Herrings and Murder Must Advertise. I'm reading that now.
I had a funny conversation today at the feed store with a woman who has two dogs: Hamlet and Portia. Hamlet eats Portia's shit, so I made the GEEKIEST JOKE EVER by saying "The quality of feces is not strained." I think that I was just so amazed that I remember anything about Shakespeare that I almost wet myself, and the joke was a kind of personal Depends garment to keep me dry. Or something.
