Winter read

Post by jerry »

It is a mild winter here in SW Ohio. Therefore, I read and read. A writer from the Twin Cities has written another interesting story. He's William Kent Krueger. He usually writes about up north (Minnesota). His latest-"The River We Remember" is different and should be worth reading.

P.S. I want to thank all of you who have been kind to me over the years at our special NP & close by. You know who you are.

I just finished "The River We Remember" and thoroughly enjoyed it. His long-running murder mystery series (Cork O'Connor) is also enjoyable, but his other one-off books like "Ordinary Grace" have been my favorites.

(From the thread title I thought you were going to recommend some Nevada Barr, and I was going to have to bite my tongue. :P)

You know Nevada Barr books about ISRO NP are true fiction. Especially, when she describes distances between parts of the island. I read one of them at Daisy Farm years ago. It was raining steady for about 2 days. I was lucky to be in a shelter near the trail, that goes up to the fire tower.

I’ve read a few books out of the “help yourself” bin at Daisy Farm. I think that’s where a tattered paperback copy of “The Hobbit” came from.
