Current: Crispin: the cross of lead by Avi. On my list of Newberry Award books to read.
Finished: The Last Goodbye by Reed Arvin
These high, green hillsby Jan Karon
The Murder Room by P.D. James. Denser than most mysteries, but good read.
Current: Elizabeth and Mary (cousins, rivals, queens) by Jane Dunn
Genome war (How Craig Venter tried to capture the code of life and save the world) by James Shreeve. Good story and makes stripping wallpaper and painting go much faster.
Library (an unquiet history) by Matthew Battles.
Set aside: Flashing before my eyes 50 years of headlines, deadlines & punchlines by Dick Schaap.
