Reading progress: 69%
Dust - Elizabeth Bear
“Climb down,” Benedick answered. “He’s from Cat.”
“How do you know?” Rien was surprised to hear her own voice sound so strong. It was, of course, an illusion.
“Cat hasn’t spoken to me in fifteen years,” he said. “A little thing like the end of the world wouldn’t change that.”

Storm in a Teacup: The Physics of Everyday Life - Helen Czerski

So, this finally came through the library waitlist.


I actually wanted to read it for the booklikes book club The Flat Book Society but looks like that ended January 31 with their next book not starting until next month.


Oh well.  Still want to read it because the posts and discussions made it sound interesting.  I still have other library books and borrows due back soon that will be read first.  And I'll likely read this nonfiction book in chapters/pieces to better digest.


The next bookclub read in March will be:  I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life - Ed Yong

No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice - Julie Moffett

So far — in a good way — this is not coming across as YA.  Possibly because Lexi is turning 25, has college degree, a not- new job, and a roommate-less apartment.


Reading for a booklikes book club -- YA Book Club. 


I can relate to the "shoulder surfing" comment.  It's always irritating when uninvited, but at least she's civil service at a time where government offices are non-smoking (*bad flashbacks* to tiny offices and cubicles with already poor ventilation where the shoulder surfers chain-smoked and often made snickering comments about needing a brain straw to get in my head ...)

No One Lives Twice No One Lives Twice - Julie Moffett

Starting this mystery for a booklikes book club -- YA Book Club. Feel free to join us.


Completely unfamiliar with book and author.  Kinda sounds like YA meets chick flick meets mystery meets Gallagher Girls meets Get Smart.  First in the Lexi Carmichael series.

Schedule Question for book club TOR Monthly Free eBook
Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey

Reminder: any edition of the book can be read (do not have to download the free ebook from publisher TOR/Macmillan).


Should we read the books as soon as announced or start them the next month?


"As announced" would mean reading this one now through middle of August.


"Next month" would mean an August read, giving people time to get book and adjust reading plans.  Bookclub would show current read plus mid-August when next announced would show a next book.


Will anyone be joining me in reading Kushiel's Dart or is this month's freebie of no interest (or already read, it is an older publication)?
