The reading rampage has ended – 10 books in 15 days, not bad considering it was largely interrupted by a three-day trip to New York. A final Hillerman and an early Peter Robinson were among the final five. Both solid reads, as was Red Square by Martin Cruz Smith. Skin Tight, an early Carl Hiaasen, isn’t one of the author’s best. And I can’t recommend Robert B. Parker’s Double Play.

Still reading the new biography of Edith Wharton and a collection of poetry by Jim Harrison.
