@Dan – You beat me to it! I too noticed they all featured the color blue. Another clever Scalzi Easter egg sussed out by his faithful and ever observant readers. Try as you may, you can’t trick us, Scalzi! Nyahaha!

Do you actually find time to read everything that gets sent to you in these stacks? More importantly, do you still have time to read the other things you want to read?

The Sarah Beth Durst is the third book in a trilogy and I enjoyed the first two, so that’s one I’ll definitely be reading. Also, Semiosis has very nice reviews on Good Reads so I’ll add that to my to-be-read list. Someday I’ll try Abercrombie again; I started “Half a King” and it didn’t hold my interest. I suspect it had more to do with me than the author, since most folks seem to really like his books.

Read me! Here’s the blurb from my publisher: “Set in a near future Washington, D.C., a clever, incisive, and fresh feminist twist on a classic literary icon—Sherlock Holmes—in which Dr. Janet Watson and covert agent Sara Holmes will use espionage, advanced technology, and the power of deduction to unmask a murderer targeting Civil War veterans.”
