09:56 pm - Enjoy it while it lasts
This summer it seems we get one good day a month, and today was August's. And not even all of it, because last night was still warm and wet and I kept the windows closed and the window AC on, and the morning dawned muggy and grey. But the wind picked up and blew it all away by noon, and it's now clear and dry.

(Actually there was a very nice day not quite two weeks ago that was also blowy sun and cool after rain, when I went down to the AGO for cocktails and a viewing of the two Inuit artists, Kenojuak Ashevak and her nephew Tim Pitsiulak. But if I don't talk about things here I forget they happened.)

Last finished?
Choo, The Ghost Bride
Christie, Murder in Mesopotamia

Reading now?
Karen Lord, Redemption in Indigo
Christie, Sad Cypress

Have a couple of holds for the ereader and, in theory, the next Phantom Moon Tower is on its way to me. I hope mental confusion hasn't led me to order vol.4 again, believing it to be the latest.

I remember that you enjoy Sherlock Holmes stories. Have you tried Kareem Abdul-Jabar's book, Mycroft? I wasn't sure what to expect since it's been ages since I read any Holmes stories and I will say I was pleasantly surprised. I read it on my Kindle.

I hadn't even heard of it but will track it down now. Thanks for the tip!
