1. I pulled some tattered old paperbacks

from the shelves that I haven't visited in a decade or so, and I'm in the process of re-reading them.

My collection of Andre Norton's works.

2. James W. Hall; Hell's Bay.

Hall hasn't written a book I didn't enjoy, but this may be one of his best.
I admit some bias. I am familiar with the Florida locations he writes about which, for me, makes it all the more interesting.
His character, Thorn, also keeps my interest.

7. _The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing_ by Tarquin Hall

Second in the series of "Vish Puri, India's Most Private Investigator". Vish and his operatives investigate the rather public murder of a debunker by the Goddess Kali. Also they look into the high-priced ashram of a Godman which his wife and mother investigate the robbery of the kittie from a kittie party. Great fun, and for anyone who has spent time in India, Hall's ear for Indian English will make you nostalgic.

Listening: _The People of Sparks_ by Jeanne Duprau. YA post-world-wide disaster. The people from the _City of Ember_, having escaped just in time, come to the surface to find that non-subterranean life is very different.

2013: 42 and counting.

8. re read-Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

By Douglas Adams


Wild , crazy free form writing about a crazy person. This book is pure Douglas Adams. It has been years since I last read it, and I just started it last night. I needed a break from


THIS

I am also reading


Salt Fat Sugar by Michael Moss . It explains in detail how the so called food industry manipulated our food supply to make us fat , sick and apathetic. This as a scary book that really pisses me off
