    Well, I just heard about a book that I have to read now: Soap and Water & Common Sense: The Definitive Guide to Viruses, Bacteria, Parasites, and Disease by Dr. Bonnie Henry. She is our chief health officer in British Columbia, leading the fight against COVID-19 in our province, holding press briefings daily. A women of enormous intelligence and compassion. I doubt I could get a physical copy of this book, given how popular Dr. Henry has become--but maybe I can download it on my iPad or Macbook.

    Meanwhile I'm still reading a chapter of WAR AND PEACE a day. And reading a Sherlock Holmes story each week. I'll probably finish both before we're out of the woods.

    Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi, the sequel to Children of Blood and Bone, I enjoyed it better than the first, looking forward to the next one.

    Today I picked up a book that's been staring at me every time I look at my shelves but just never took the plunge. Currently plunging into Dune.

    Finished lost on venus last night. Its disheartening that the technologically superior, brilliant city of ubermensch is a product of Eugenicism and beyind the main character pointing out how him being sentenced to death by them is wrong (similarly with his love interest) he's A-ok with them after he survives on a technicality and lauds them

    Finished another Barnaby novel. I'm really enjoying these for two reasons; they provide a more relaxed break from the Morse books (which you should read!) and it's interesting comparing them to the TV adaptation, which is one of my all time favourite TV shows despite its issue.

    Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater, first book of a trilogy, spinoff to The Raven Cycle series. Love the dreamy, magical world that Stiefvater has created and the complex characters within it.

    The Infinite Noise: A Bright Sessions Novel by Lauren Shippen, urban SFF based on the podcast The Bright Sessions, focused on the characters of Caleb and Adam. I had never heard of the podcast prior to reading the novel, which i enjoyed.

    How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom by SJ Goslee, fake dating hijinks. I wasn't expecting much from this except a way to kill some time, but I actually found it very charming. The characters in particular were all engagingly eccentric.

    I just finished the first two The Walking Dead novels. They're OK.

    No cover images because I got bored of trying to find one that fits within CBR's seemingly tiny file size limits...
