Again, a really busy time, so I’ve been “reading” more via audio, but I can’t give up stories!
For those of you new to this… The Friday Fragments feature lists of what I’ve read over the past week. They are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive list, you can look on my website.
This is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a few opinions tossed in.
The Stainless Steel Rat by Harry Harrison. Audiobook. The reader is excellent, capturing the main character’s twisted but essentially good-hearted personality well.
The Stainless Steel Rat’s Revenge by Harry Harrison. Audiobook. Also fun, but time for a break before I start finding the idea a life of crime appealing.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Third in the excellent “Raven Boys” series. So far, living up to the previous two…
The Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold. Audiobook. My friend Rowan mentioned recently that our library had most of his series as audio. I’d always meant to read more, so I’m giving this a try.
A variety of shorter Chinese material. The trick is knowing when to stop!
