Sunday Salon: Rain in January

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date

It's been raining the past few days. Not that I'm complaining about the lack of snow.
 
 I'm reading Krazy: The Black and White World of George Herriman by Michael Tisserand, December 6, 2016, Harper in slow stages, reading carefully. 

An interesting biography of the creator of the Krazy Kat comic strip. I recommend it. 

I'm also half-way through Beasts and Children: Stories by Amy Parker, February 2, 2016, Mariner Books.
 
Excellent short stories of children with absent, neglectful, dysfunctional, or preoccupied parents, and the animals the children love or come in contact with.

Two new books arrived, one for a tour coming up.
Abby's Journey by Steena Holmes, February 14, 2017. A young woman's travels in search for answers.
Saving Abby by Steena Holmes is the book that precludes Abby's Journey. They can be read separately.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Just thinking about black and white book covers. At first, I hated them. Now, I like them; I think.

  2. Krazy looks interesting and I'm curious about the Abby books. I love journey type books. I just finished A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams and really enjoyed it.

  4. I think I have a copy of SAVING ABBY. I've read at least one other book by that author and remember liking it. Will watch for your reviews.
