Librarian book group is on the right. The probelm is the middle readers. Usually they are very short books that I can whip through quickly but this month we’ve got a tome, Egg & Spoon, by the author of Wicked, an opus about a remote inn with mysterious visitors (Greenglass House) and a volume about a boy who can talk to ravens. (Gabriel Finley) All of these are only marginally interesting to me and yet they go on and on. I did just start the one with the flames on it (Firebug) and it’s quite promising. It’s YA, a teenaged firestarter with a boyfreind who smokes. I’m down with that. Thank goodness the books on the top and bottom of the pile can be read in 20 minutes. Though The Farmer and the Clown has had the song “Territory Folk” in my head off and on all week long.)
On the left? The final two of the 10 books to read for this year’s Mock Printz. They aren’t due until January.
