Lots of people do more than one book at a time - I'm not one of them. I'm doing good to concentrate on one at a time. Just finished The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu by Michael Stanley. I enjoyed the book and reading about South Africa.
Alas, I don't get down to reading until bedtime and in twenty minutes I am o-u-t fir the night.
I'm returning to Michigan next weekend to start a new mystery. It should be a good one, as my wife gave me a brilliant idea for it. If I complete it and it is published it will be book #22.
Harley Sachs www.hu.mtu.edu/~hlsachs where you can read the short story "The Great Fortune Cookie Caper." Funny mystery.
I've just read something I'd be plugging as Best New Crime Fiction novel in this year's Neds - Storm Peak by John A Flanagan and then Bleeding Heart Square by Andrew Taylor. Now I have to find something to keep up the standard :)
SITKA by Louis l'Amour -- since I'm still in Alaska mode, and I needed something that wouldn't hang onto my attention for days. In addition to the standard l'Amour mountain man hero, it ties into the circumstances of the Alaska Purchase.
I'm reading "Drood" bu Dan Simmons. Book is framed as a document written by Wilkie Collins, with his instructions that it be published many years hence. I'm only on page 159 of 771 pages, but so far, so good.
