Time to pick our next book! Or, the next book you want to read us talking about even if you don’t read it yourself. However you think of it.
NEXT WEEK! “The Soul of the Croupier”, a pleasant short Christie story that is included in the collection “The Mysterious Mr. Quin”. Or, you can buy just the one story on kindle for only 99 cents.
In TWO WEEKS, here are your options:
Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie: This is one of those books I just read every time I need a giggle. It’s frothy, it’s fun, it’s a bit sexy, and it’s very funny too. Basically a screwball comedy in book form. You will be able to read it in a few hours, tops, and it will fly by like nothing. You can get it easily on kindle, used for almost nothing, from your local library, or new if you prefer.
The Marvelous Land of Oz By L. Frank Baum: This is the second Oz book or, as I think of it, the first “real” Oz book. Wizard of Oz was a one off, once it became super super successful Baum wrote a book that could serve as the start of a long series. It’s a fun funny kids book, and it has gender issues that are FASCINATING and I want to talk to someone about them.
The Red Signal by Grace Livingston Hill: this is the book I suggested a few weeks back. Classic very silly WWI era romance novel which includes Evil Spies and also a dramatic moment when the heroine realizes she has left home WITHOUT A HAT and has to make one out of her apron.
Okay, which one are you most excited about?????
