David McCullough's new book, The Pioneers. As usual, a wonderful writing style that really makes the history come alive.

Volume I of Tarrega/Roch "Metodo Moderno para Guitarra"...great practice/study. I've breezed through it once and, now, I'm starting at the beginning to do a serious study/review.

That looks interesting. Are you still playing just the alto, or did you get a tenor to go along with it?

Hi Larry, thanks for the reference to Edgar Hunt's book. I was given a soprano recorder and thought that some day I would try it; this may be that time.

Louise Penny "Kingdom of the Blind".

Hubby loves her books. I've developed a schadenfreude relationship with them...I'm waiting for all the characters to get murdered...

“Insomnia” by Stephen King
I’ve read about 20 of King’s books, this is probably my least favorite. Of course we’ll see how it wraps up. King‘s books always finish strong.

Dacre Stoker is the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker. I am thoroughly enjoying this novel.

I recently started reading Trunk Music by Michael Connelly, the first of many in his series about a detective Harry Bosch who, like a dog with a bone, will persistently grind away at a murder case, digesting every bit. This will be my third read of the Bosch series!
