Lowcountry Bonfire (Liz Talbot Mystery … Homicide for the Holidays (Viv and Char…

I am listening to Lowcountry Bonfire by Susan M. Boyer. I’m not a huge fan of audio books and it took a while to get into the reader’s voice in this one. But the story is wonderful. I love the Liz Talbot Mystery Series.

I am reading the paperback of Homicide for the Holidays by Cheryl Honigford. This is the first time I’ve read a book by this author. So far so good. And let me say this, the paperback is an odd size. Bigger than the traditional paperback but smaller than a hardback. I’m one book off from finishing the Mother-Daughter Reading Challenge and this book fits 😉

What did you recently finish reading?

TimelineThe technological starting point for Timeline is the emerging science of quantum mechanics, a field of study so abstruse, so “nonintuitive” that, in Richard Feynman’s words, “nobody understands [it].” Crichton, of course, has never been one to allow complex technologies intimidate him, and quantum theory provides him with the speculative basis for Timeline‘s central conceit: That we live, not in a finite universe, but in a “multiverse” composed of an infinite, constantly expanding series of parallel universes in which all past moments continue to exist. Crichton then posits an imaginary technology that uses quantum computers that are literally capable of “faxing” human beings to selected target areas of the multiverse. The result is a kind of de facto time travel, a phenomenon around which Crichton constructs an exciting — and ingenious — story.

This was my first Michael Crichton book. I enjoyed it more than I expected. Now I get to watch the movie and throw popcorn at the screen during the inconsistancies.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I think I am going to read Regeneration by Laura DiSilverio. This is book 3 in the Incubation Trilogy. Might as well finish it off. I enjoyed the first two books.Regeneration (The Incubation Trilogy Book 3)
