Bout of Books

Bout of Books 31 wrapped up tonight, and while I didn’t complete all my goals, I’m counting it as a success. I finished my audiobook, Abby Collette’s A Deadly Inside Scoop. It was sort of a middle-of-the-road cozy about a young Black woman who stumbles over a dead body the same day she relaunches her family ice cream parlor. Her father ends up being the main suspect, so she and her BBC Mystery-loving best friend find themselves trying to clear him. I don’t know I’ll keep reading the series, but I’m glad I read the first one, particularly because BIPOC sleuths are hard to come by. I started George Saunders’ A Swim in a Pond in the Rain because it’s overdue and I want to see if I should request it again, buy it, or just return it and give it no further psychic energy. (I need to read a few more pages before I can decide.) So that was where my print mojo went, rather than to the graphic novel, which is what I’d planned to finish.

I did make it to all three Bout of Books Twitter chats (the two official and the bonus one), although only one of them did I arrive on time. Oh well.

You are way ahead of me! I just got a poetry book from Al and I will read it and all her other poetry books she’s given. SUMMER GOAL.
