many books

See if I can remember them all:
Am listening to the 3rd dragon tale, The Golden Cage: The Ballad of Sir Benfro Book Three , by JD Oswald, and am enjoying it. An unexpected pleasure.

Started Stiff by Mary Roach, 2003 and like it a lot but my recording is not working. I will get back to it though. Pretty gruesome body parts and stories but very interesting.

Ian Rankin's latest Rebus book is very good. Even Dogs in the Wild: The New John Rebus 2015. Good characters, well plotted, good mystery.

Drove to Victoria listening to Elly Griffith's The Zig Zag Girl. Good book. Good characters, first book I've read that was not in her series.

Started My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante 2012. Has many rave reviews but I left only part way through and probably won't get back to it.

Close Your Eyes 2015 by Michael Robatham, 8th book in a series, was good. Like his main character, who has Parkinsons.

The Dogs of War by Frederick Forsyth. Good writer, 2011. Writing about mercenaries, seems all to believeable and very unnerving.

Career of Evil
, 2015, by Robert Galbraith aka Rowling. Very enjoyable 3rd book of her adult mysteries. I like the characters and the story chugs along. Hope she writes some more.
