And now it's time for Grantville Gazette #74
Which was most enjoyable, as usual. I especially like the non-GG fantasy story at the end.

Next up: Poirot & Me by David Suchet.

Next, another library book, The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan.
I enjoyed the wit and creativity but thought the plot was lacking suspense and originality. The number of coincidences and sudden escapes from sure death was astonishing. I was just waiting for them. Still I enjoyed it for what it was, basic, clean fun. Perhaps, this time it was what all the author was aiming for. Rated C [3 stars] for its humor.

Next TBD

After finishing Richard Lloyd Parry's Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan’s Disaster Zone, I needed a bit of a break. At Ann Leckie's recommendation, I am about 2/3 through R.E. Stearn's space pirate romp Barbary Station. From the description:

Quote:
Adda and Iridian are newly-minted engineers, but in a solar system wracked by economic collapse after an interplanetary war, an engineering degree isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. Desperate for gainful employment, they hijack a colony ship, planning to join a pirate crew at Barbary Station, an abandoned shipbreaking station in deep space.
...
There’s a glorious future in piracy…if they can survive long enough.

Just finished Artemis by Andy Weir and it was a very good read although I wouldn’t rate it quite as high as The Martian. Very colorful female protagonist making me think of the book as a lunar version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Next up The Midnight Line by Lee Child

Finished Oddjobs by Heide Goody & Iain Grant. Very entertaining, with an interesting premise. Definitely going to read the second book.

Currently reading Midnight Line by Lee Child. As usual I don't want it to end.
