Library Pick :
What is a ‘Library Pick’ ?? Thank you for asking! Instead of spending 4 hours every few weeks, scouring the library shelves for hits and misses – I’ve decided to let fate, the library, the ordering staff, and the joys of alphabetical shelving, choose my books.
So I’m starting at the ‘A’ section, and the only grace I give myself is that I’m allowed to skip over books that are part of a larger series – if I haven’t been lucky enough to find book one as next in line.
And short stories. I’ll make my way back around for those
Any other book is a must pick.

Though easy to read, Abbott lost me early on with the mix of terrorist plotting & Homeland Security – blame media overload, but my tired imagination doesn’t have room to breathe in such a familiar and sad locale.
