If you have not yet seen it, The Muppet Christmas Carol is very good.

Finished "Trial Run" by Dick Francis. Randall Drew is sent to Moscow to investigate threats against a royally-connected candidate for the Moscow Olympic Games. His brief is vague, the opposition invisible and the stakes appallingly high. Not one of his best, but enjoyable enough, and an interesting look back at what life in the Soviet Union was like in the 1970s.

I'm 23% into The Autistic Brain by Temple Grandin. It's a very fascinating look into the subject by a person who should know what she's talking about: the author is not only Autistic, but she is a biologist with a PhD.

An amazing book from an amazing person. I gave it a solid 5 stars.

Next up: The Day After Never by Nathan Van Coops. The third in his time travel series.

It's an odd series for me, in that I don't really like the protagonist. But the ideas are interesting.
And again, interesting ideas, but a bit too hand-wavy, and I still don't really like the main character. I don't think I'll be continuing the series.

Then I start with by oldest bought unread book, The Spider by Norvell W. Page. But I swiftly abandoned it. Early 20th C crime pulp isn't for me.

Now onto The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie.

As it happens, I'm reading Bleak House now! It's not headed to be a favourite Dickens for me, but I will certainly finish it. Next up is Little Dorrit. I'm working my way through the complete collection.

Finished up Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking last night. This novel contains her famous request that her obituary be "that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra."

It was a bittersweet read knowing that she would eventually succumb to some of her demons. But it was lovely listening to her talk about her parents and, more than anything, how much she adored her daughter.

The fact that I listened to this in audiobook form, read by Fisher, probably added an additional star to my review.

Good to hear that you plan to read it all. Much of his non-fiction is little-read and sadly unappreciated.
