Beyond This Horizon

Heinlein, Robert
I LOVE Heinlein, I read a number of his titles over and over. This will not be one of them. I'm too dumb to understand the genetics, so LONG descriptions of same were...boring! The use of the n-word (in one spot) was offensive to me. I think the author should have used another example. There were a few instances of the "good Heinlein" showing through, but most of the text was dreary much to me.

Big Sky

Atkinson, Kate
A Jackson Brodie book. Engaging story, full of the usual twists and turns. Honestly, I get to the end and I STILL don't know what is what. Silver BMW, some girl named Darcy, and the title - what does the title mean?

The Library Book

Orlean, Susan
This is the best non-fiction book (that I can remember) that I have ever read. It is about the 80s fire at the Los Angeles Public Library Central, a bit of the history of the Library, and glimpses of the workings.
