Tuesday Book Blogging

I spent much of the weekend reading for a change, zipping through Robert B. Parker's final completed Spenser novel, Sixkill, which was pretty good. I love the new character, but I am pretty tired of Spenser and Susan always talking about their relationship. Haven't you worked it out by now? Parker's still got that snappy dialogue going. Well, all right then, did, up until he died.

BossypantsI also read most of Bossypants by Tina Fey, which is terrific. Here's a teaser for you as she describes being in a photo shoot:

With the wind blowing in your long extensions, you feel like Beyonce. The moment the wind machine stops, you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and wonder, "Why is the mother from Coal Miner's Daughter here?"

I hope you had a wonderful and restful 4th of July weekend!

I must read this Tina Fey memoir. It sounds so funny. I am also a new follower. I work with teenagers as a high school librarian but I am very involved in ministry work with the homeless through my church and I lived in Africa with my missionary parents as a child.
