C.F. cozy book nook!

Read any good books, lately? I've been curling up with mysteries, lately, including Doyle, Alexander Mccall's wonderful series and Lilian Jackson Braun!

I'm just starting 'Inside the O'Brien's' by Lisa Genova. I've read a few of her other novels and they were excellent. This one is about the impact of Huntington's Disease on a family.

I go through phases and at the moment I am craving cozies - never mind comfort food, this is comfort reading. Ones with cats are even better although the one I am reading at the moment involves book-binding.

I think my answer is the same as the last time you asked but I'm still reading 'All the Light We Cannot See' by Anthony Doerr. The language and story are so beautiful, I'm trying to savor it slowly and not burn through it.

Re-read "The Cat's House"

I thought I'd given this book away some years ago, so it was a bit of a surprise when my husband found it while looking for something else in some boxes.
Re-reading it after not seeing it for years inspires the following musings:
- It seems smaller (both the book and the house) than I remember
- I would still like to try the spiral staircase, although there's no place to put it and it seems like a heck of a lot of work.
- It predates the Jackson Galaxy Catify books by 20 years! I mean 20 years! A real ground breaker in it's day.
- The projects would require far greater skill in carpentry than some of the Catify projects using stock Ikea units would.

I've never heard of it but it sounds fascinating. Is it still in print?

Yes. It's still in print, as well as other photographic books by the same authors.

Seth Grahame Smith wrote a sequel to Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter! I was just at the library. From the cover art, the story takes place in the post-WW2 period, shortly after V-Day. I would assume Henry's in this one.

ALVH came about from a 'chocolate and peanut butter moment.' Seth Grahame Smith was on a speaking tour for Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. It was the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth,also the Twilight novels were popular. At every book store where he spoke, there was always a Lincoln table and a Twilight table
