Wow. I finished 16 books this month! That's not a lot to some of you speed readers, but it is for me. I average 4-6 books a month usually.

 

I'm also very close to finishing 2 more. :D

 

Just one of this month's books was a Netgalley read, Symphony of Ruin. The others came out of either my A-list or my free books slush pile, or were sourced from Amazon's daily freebies or in the case of Classics, from Gutenberg.

 

I didn't read any samples all month. I had about a dozen saved up before Bingo started, but the pile has been growing from all the books I see from others' Bingo reads! I'm not going to tackle that folder until November. It will be interesting to see how many collect up!

 

So, for October, Bingo continues. Once I hit blackout, if I manage it, I'll try the other books from my free books slush that I put aside for back-ups in case some of my choices turn out to be duds. It will give me a start on cleaning out the free books backlog!

as Sherlock Holmes once said, in some bad fanfiction, "there's something pretty friggin' weird going on here, eh, Watsy, old bean, old bird, old hen? got a clue?...cuz I don't know what the hell's goin' on.". (non-canonical).

I've read this series out of order, and over many years--but every time Ann's ex-husband shows up making trouble, I sort of wish Frank would just shoot him and say it was self-defence. meanwhile, a Senator--the man behind the US Prez--has recently had a heart attack, and can't be allowed to know he is getting serious death threats, but amidst total secrecy during the protection-and-investigation, Frank has to make sure no harm comes to the politician. seems like a tense, entertaining entry in this series.

okay, I just read The Sinner...so what I need now is, I need a nice normal murder, with a nice normal dead body, with everything normal, and down-to-earth, with a nice normal killer who hopefully gets caught by a nice normal detective. I'm going to San Francisco, to hopefully calm down, with Lt. Frank Hastings. this is supposed to be one of his interesting cases; whatever, as long as the murder weapon, and the motive, and the blood, and the suspects are all normal.

 

yeah. right. probably his freakiest case ever...

Bingo Update! I have a row!
Children of Chaos - Greg F. Gifune
Cabal - Clive Barker
Mirror Mirror - Anthony M. Strong
Helltown - Jeremy Bates
Stalking Jack - Madison Kent

It doesn't count as Bingo because the squares haven't all been called, but I have a row completed. :D

 

 

Now the question is, which to target next? The diagonal row or the second across row? Both have three called squares. So I'm doing one from each that are fairly short and we'll see what happens next. I really want to start Dead Sea by Tim Curran for Monsters square, but it's nearly 600 pages!
