So, I decided to just skip space 28 this time around. I did read for space 36, though. I read A Great Deliverance, which has all the letters to spell V-E-N-I-C-E in the title, which, at 430 pages long, netted me $5.00.
I pass "Go", which means I collect $5.00!
7. Read a book that has a house on the cover, or that is related to something unique about your community (for example, if your community has a strawberry festival, read a book with strawberries on the cover).
Hmmmmm. I'm going to have to think about this one for a minute or two. I may end up playing one of my novelty cards here!
OB's reviews of the first three books in the Inspector Lynley series have compelled me to reread them - I initially read them around the time of publication, which in the case of this book was 1988. I think that I probably read it in the early 1990's, maybe 1994 or so. I have a very distinct memory of reading one of the first entries into the series on a cruise ship balcony. I don't recall if I had picked up the book in one of those terrible cruise ship libraries that are the sad depository of musty Barbara Cartlands and poorly-written thrillers, or if it was one of the carefully curated stack of books I packed, long before the invention of the kindle meant that I could carry an entire library in my purse.
I forgot how good the beginning of this series is. This is really just an outstanding mystery - disturbing, emotionally resonant and horrifying. Tommy Lynley feels a little bit underdeveloped, but we're already getting deep into Barbara Havers, who is by far the best character in the series. In fact, tbh, George probably should have called it the DI Barbara Havers series.
I just placed a library hold on book 2. I can't remember when the books start to decline, but I do remember THAT BOOK. The one that all of you other series readers will also remember - where George goes completely off the fucking rails and takes a wrecking ball to everything that she has spent a dozen or so books building.

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park in Montana is one of the top attractions in the city. The place has gained popularity because of its exclusive geological features, which can be seen in the many lakes that the place has, multiple waterfalls and two mountain ranges spread across a huge area . Tourists visit this place mostly in July and August. There are a lot of activities you can engage yourself when in this place like driving through the park, kayaking or canoeing on a lake and hiking some of the hundreds of scenic trails.
Boston is a place that is visited by all kind of travelers. In summers, it has an average temp in the 70s and 80s. You can visit Fenway Park if you love baseball, you can go for a scavenger hunt at the Freedom Trail to dig in the history of the place and gorge over some lip-smacking food available in the North End and Faneuil Hall Marketplace. You can also go beer tasting in some of the best breweries or enjoy yourself in the festivals that take place during summer, such as Boston Pride and Boston Harborfest.
Maui is one of the ideal places for a summer vacation. It is home to some of the dormant volcanoes and gushing waterfalls. You can roam about in the world-renowned beaches and a coastline that measures up to 30 miles. At sunset, you can go for cliff diving or spend your summer basking in the rays of the sun on the hammock island. The place should not be missed if you are into snorkeling and is always up for an adventure.
