cats and birds 046 Just One Evil Act by Elizabeth George.  The author, Elizabeth George, is a good writer, but this book was just too long.   It seemed to take me forever to finish reading this book which stretched to over 700 pages.   I feel it could have been cut in half.

My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard – compelling reading – this is Book 4 in hardback, I just had to read it after I finished Books 3, 1, and 2, in that order.  I wish my Norwegian was good enough so that I could read Books 5 and 6.  I eagerly await the English translations.

2 for Agatha Christie fans

It”s Fine By Me by Per Petterson – I found this rather similar to Karl Ove Knausgaard’s writing – I liked it very much.

I tend to read in the afternoons when it gets too hot to be out and about.  In the relative cool of the morning is a good time to tend to the garden.    more garden photos 022  2 new plants today – Rudbeckia and Snapdragon
