Thursday, 29 December 2016 Soggy Paper, The Library, Barefoot Chardonnay

My reading day started off on a downer, when I didn’t get out to grab The Wall Street Journal. It was pouring & – by the time I made it out – the paper was a soggy mess.

But, I shouldn’t complain. As a family, we made it by our local library and got sixteen books for the weekend. I went into the Children’s Room and helped our kids search, while my wife looked. Then she took the kids.

I got four books. I guess I’m in ghoul mode because they’re all true crime –

  1. Murder on a Lonely Road by George Pawlaczyk and Beth Hundsdorfer,
  2. Zero @ the Bone by John Heidenry,
  3. Son of a Gun by Justin St. Germain, and
  4. Killing the Messenger by Thomas Peele.


My leggy wife and I stayed up late (for us), reading and drinking some leftover Barefoot chardonnay that we’d had for our guests. She read all of one of her library books – Dave Barry’s Best, State, Ever. She kept laughing out loud and giving me snippets. The book is Barry’s take on Florida. She highly recommended it to me.

I read about 230 pages of Murder on a Lonely Road. It’s about a Missouri man named Gerry Carnahan who was alleged to be a serial killer. I finished about 230 pages. While it’s not the type of book that you’d call great, you can’t put it down. The authors keep the pages turning.
