Friday Reads - February 23, 2018
The Great Silence - Juliet Nicolson
Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality - Arnold Theodore Olson,David Boies
Dark in Death - J.D. Robb
Women Heroes of World War I: 16 Remarkable Resisters, Soldiers, Spies, and Medics - Kathryn J. Atwood

My kids are now 7 (son) and 5 (daughter). Their birthdays went well and their toy boxes are now stuffed to the brim with new toys. Son also started Boy Scouts this week, so there is another hour that I get to read while he is entertained and learning new stuff (I also read during the kids' ju-jistu class on Mondays).

 

We also took a family overnight trip to York to see the Jorvik Viking Festival. It was a lot of fun, but a long drive up there and back, plus the birthday party the following day. It was a long weekend.

 

I finished The Great Silence and moved on to the library borrow Redeeming the Dream (about 20% in). Dark in Death came in via inter-library loan this week, so my first order of business is to knock it out. After that back to Redeeming; I am hoping to finish both by the end of February. Then I am starting Women Heroes of World War I, which I borrowed from OverDrive, which will probably be my first book of March. I have almost all the books I've read in February needing reviews, so I need to get that done (on GR, since I can't rely on BL to be functioning) this weekend as well.

 

Happy reading everyone!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-02-23 15:32
Will Bobie going home and run into more killings and killers
The Guilty (Will Robie) - David Baldacci

Will Robie has accidentally killed a kid based on bad intelligence. He had problem to do his job because it haunted him.

 

Now, his boss, only referred to as the Blue Man give him leave and asked him to visit his father that he had not seen or talked to for twenty years. 

 

His father was the judge and he was now in custody waiting for his trail for murder. 

 

A local drunk and troublemaker was killed because he imposingly has cheated on had spent the night with the judge's wife. 

 

Now he was not welcome to where he was from.

 

He father Dan was a violent asshole. 

 

His has now got a hot new stepmother and a younger brother Tyler. 

 

The more he wanted to get to the bottom of this, the more violent persons turned out. Some just wanted to mess him around a bit. While other go directly into shooting.

 

Lucky that Will is someone not only could fight back, but shoot back too.

 

Now he needed help. So his long trusted partner Jessica show up and watched his six. 

 

The two are running around following leads. 

 

But not really have a clue. His father Dan was still the jerk and wouldn't be too helpful.

 

 

The event also involved pedophile, blackmailing, and young sluts getting into the sex trade. 

 

There are just so few good persons around. 

 

I thought this is going to be boring and they just to sit around talking about feelings.

 

No. A lot of actions. A lot of shooting and get shot at.

 

So, something that I like. 

 

The only part I don't like is the hypocritical characters who go to church but tricked children to be molested. Kind of sick.

 

Overall, a good read. The later part is better as there were more actions. 

 

Solid 4.5 read.

Early Spring in Massachusetts: From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau - Henry David Thoreau

To be great we do as if we would be tall merely, longer then we are broad, stretch ourselves and stand on tiptoe. But greatness is well-proportioned,unstrained, and stands on the soles of the feet.

Reading progress update: I've read 366 out of 432 pages.
The Guilty (Will Robie) - David Baldacci

There are more threats than Robbie could handle. So his good and trustworthy partner is joining him.

 

Now more bag guys have appeared and there are more dead bodies. 

 

Getting more interesting. 

 

Who are these persons? And who are the persons responsible for the killings.
