Update (318 books at 1:31 am PDT)

Posted on Jun 2, 2012, 1:44:09 AM PDT
And some picks from erreaderiq already in my library:
No Such Thing as a Secret: A Brandy Alexander Mystery (No Such Thing As...A Brandy Alexander Mystery) Meet Brandy Alexander, a young woman from South Philadelphia with a big mouth, an even bigger heart and a little problem with impulse control. It's not her fault trouble seems to follow her around. Okay, it is her fault, but why quibble over details?

When Brandy (a puff piece reporter for a local Los Angeles TV news station) returns to her hometown after a four year absence, she is thrilled to be reunited with friends and family. But her joy is short-lived when her best friend, John, becomes the victim of a tragic accident. Brandy is alone in thinking that the death is "no accident" and as she sets out to prove her theory, she stumbles upon a political scandal of major proportions. With humor, guts and determination, Brandy tackles each challenge - be it dodging a bullet or resisting that box of Tastykakes in the cupboard. Murder, mayhem and romance abound in Shelly Fredman's novel, proving there really is No Such Thing as a Secret.

Brother Can You Spare A Dime ? (A Lee Gavin Novel) The exploits of an inept and hard luck band of New York City criminals. Led by master thief Lee Gavin and his trusty sidekick Ian Nelson, the group sets out to steal the set of nine 1894S dimes, the most valuable dimes in the world worth fifteen million dollars. With Murphy's Law in full effect, one catastrophe after another befalls the group as the dimes always seem just inches from their grasp, providing close encounters and side splitting laughs along the way.

Time Slice Newly retired workaholic Roy Washburn is not ready for a life of leisure. On a trip to the mall with his wife, he finds a small metal cylinder with odd markings. One nudge of the cylinder's triangle-shaped pointer and Roy finds himself embarking on an exciting new adventure in the Time Stream.

Do not want to offend any non-believers here, but I just read Fridays thread with so many people going through tough times....for those that are Christian, these scriptures might give some encouragement:

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 41:13 For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the One saying to you, `Do not be afraid. I myself will help you'.

And some new choices....

In The Shadow of Babylon thriller; Kirkus Review is very positive...Could an ancient scroll discovered in a vault beneath Baghdad's Azzohour Palace provide the answer to Iraq's current crisis? The scroll-pre-dating Hammurabi's Code by more than 7000 years-details the life of a shepherd who became the founder of a country that existed and thrived in pre-history. It may be the most profound archeological find ever.

Pasted (The Broom Closet Mysteries) paranormal mystery, After years of an on and off again relationship, New Age shop clerk Peyton Reynolds thinks she's finally got Rob Morris out of her system. That is, until he dies and starts following her around like an undead puppy. Peyton figures that if she can help Rob solve his murder, maybe he can move on.

Dear Alix: Jackson Hole Short Stories (Alix Thorssen Mysteries) art dealer cozy mystery series I collected in DTB originally; 4 of this series have been offered over the past year, starting in July 2011, check your MYK for Painted Truth (Alix Thorssen Mysteries) Feb 8.

Rags, Bones and Donkey Stones 2nd in the series, historical fiction. Britain, 1919 - In this sequel to `Made in Myrtle Street,' Liam finds himself frustrated and despairing, his family hungry. He acquires a rag-and-bone round and is astonished when he feels in the inside pocket of a suit given to him by the recently widowed Nellie Grimshaw. He discovers a small painting of a young couple, and the man at her side is - him. Liam, with no recall of either the woman or the painting, struggles for an explanation and is haunted by its implication of his infidelity.
Pip, the daughter of his long-time pal, and her best friend, Amy, take up the challenge of finding an explanation and slowly unpick the surprising, and sometimes uncomfortable, revelations about the intriguing woman and her connection with Liam.

some things that look interesting:
The Secret Christmas Ciphers Regency novella to store til tis the season

The Impossible Rescue (The Castle Sisters #1) Faith and Summer Castle are the ultimate crime fighting duo. And they're not even old enough to drive.

Good Morning everyone! Looking like it might be one of those days here - pouring rain suddenly. The silver lining is that there is a HUGE old rose bush in full bloom down in the back garden and I can smell the glorious thing all the way up here!

Good morning, Grandma
Your roses sound lovely. I gave up after our dry summers the last few years and planted shrub roses - Belinda's Dream is a favorite - big blooms, but don't have that wonderful smell. But my Confederate jasmine along the side of the house just stopped blooming, throughout May, I could walk out on the front porch and inhale the jasmine scent, so can relate...

@TerryinTexas - I could wish jasmine grew up here. This isn't my rose bush - I live in an apartment building that obviously at one time was a very upscale house, now divided up. there is a lovely big back yard with an old fashioned clothesline down along the brook, lilac bushes, a bush that my Grandma used to call mock orange I think and this HUGE rosebush.

@TerryinTexas - are you familiar with the Antique Rose Emporium? They are in Brenham, TX and have dozens (hundreds?) of stunning antique varieties that smell :) Just got an email from them - they're having a sale. What I wouldn't give for the Lafter they're featuring! URL is

Sure sounds like a much nicer place than the one you just moved from. Those roses sound awesome.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 2, 2012, 4:28:56 AM PDT
Grandma says:
@Arieswoman - well it is larger & closer to family. The other place had its good points - like a deck and a little garden space that I don't have here. And a store directly across the street that I could walk to if I needed something. I almost went out back to take a picture of that rose bush yesterday - it was just glorious - but figured I would do it this morning instead and wouldn't you know, the rain has blasted most of the blossoms. Sadness.
