May Reads

Thursday Next in First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde 5/4/2012
Good - Fiction
Fourteen years later, Jurisfiction has ceased operation, but Thursday still works undercover in the BookWorld. Her son Friday's destiny in the Chronoguard is in jeopardy and of course the world is in danger of imminent destruction.
I love getting lost in the BookWorld with Thursday Next. You should try it sometime!

Jane Austen in Boca by Paula Marantz Cohen 5/24/2012
Good - Fiction
A retelling of Austen's Pride & Prejudice set in Boca Raton FL and peopled with Jewish retirees.
Interesting concept for a P&P retooling and quite well-done.

The Applause of Heaven by Max Lucado 5/26/2012
Excellent - Inspirational
A study of the Beatitudes with a focus on joy
Been too long since I read Lucado. Going to make it a regular habit!

The Custom of the Army by Diana Gabaldon 5/27/2012
Good - novella
Lord John travels to Canada to handle the court martial of an old friend.
Short e-book about Lord John, one of the characters in the Outlander series.
