I have drifted into Kalona proper to use Internet at the library and spend time in a nice little coffee shop. The last few days I have been shacked up with a stack of novels back at the farm. I am now a huge fan of Carl Hiaasen, his book Skinny Dip, is one of the those laugh out loud Florida farces. I don't know why I have never read him before. Too many books, so little time I suppose. From there I moved on to his Basket Case, which includes lyrics of a song written by the late great Warren Zevon which was included on his record, My Ride is Here.

I have also been spending time in Baltimore thanks to Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan series. Start with Baltimore Blues.

I get three whole days off this weekend. I'm hoping to catch up on movies and books. Then I don't get another holiday until Memorial Day. Please read books for me too.

I will see what I can do. I have some more Tess Monaghan lined up as they are pretty quick reads. I think Lippman is marred to one of the creators of The Wire...

Freudian slip... "married" not "marred"
