For the Love of Reading

Yep, I had a break for a bit but now I have two books going and more in the TBR queue.  I would not have started the second book had it not been for opportunity to obtain the book early through a new online venue known as overdrive.  I committed to back to basics with honest to god “real” books from the library but the allure of not having to wait drew me in to reconsider my online book ban. Damn you Kindle app on iPad much more user friendly than the Kindle itself.

Here are two short and sweet snippets and then full on reviews to follow.

The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner -the opposite of a whodunit.  We know from the beginning as the central character is starting the rest of her life behind bars.   Too early to predict where this leads.  So far keeping my interest.

The Outsider by Stephen King – So far this is a gritty real life whodunit.  Pillar of the community or evil among us?  How can someone be in two places at the same time?  Does everyone have a doppelganger?  This book better not end with some sci-fi crap.  You hear me SK?  Do not disappoint your constant reader.

As always, more to come.
