Say It With Poison, by Ann Granger
To Play The Fool, by Laurie R. King
The Janissary Tree, by Jason Goodwin

The local Borders (we don't have B&N here) runs discount coupons each week and sometimes they are actually useful. This week it's 3 for 2 on mysteries and thrillers. I'm such a cheapskate.

Music is currently off because I am reading the first couple of scenes of the third book to myself. It's amazing how much you can improve something by reading it aloud. Rhythm problems leap off the page and so do poor word combinations. It has to be easy to say, because if it's easy to say, it's easy to read.

I just made an order online for several books. Not that I don't already have a pile of books-to-read by my desk, and several I want to re-read. Enjoy your reading and your writing.

Yeah, I agree about problems leaping off the page when you read your work aloud. Some of my sentences need to be shot and buried and a new one erected in its place.
