24. Where’d You Go, Bernadette

By Maria Semple

Rating:  5 of 5

This was recommended by a book club member who had it recommended to her by someone in anothe book club.  It is interesting and quirky.  The characters are quirky, and it is written in a unique style.

One of the characters works for Microsoft.  One was once a wiz kid architect.

This was an excellent book.  It had interesting things about Microsoft and Antarctica.  Without giving away anything, it had a satisfactory ending.

23. HRC

By Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes

Rating: 3.5 out of 4

This was given to me by my friend, Tiffany, because I am a Hillary supporter.

I finished 24, 25, and 26 before finishing this one.  I enjoyed this book.  I learned more about. Hillary and satisfied myself that I have made a good choice to support her.

The authors are biased in her favor, so I probably need to read more books about her to get a fuller picture.  It is unlikely I can find an unbiased book, though.

I’ve had this book on hold at he library, and it just became available.  I’ve got to read it before The Help, because new books can’t be renewed.

I really enjoy these Anna Pigeon books.  I hope this one doesn’t disappoint.

It didn’t disappoint.  This book had two stories going on that came together pretty neatly at the end.  Nevada Barr does a good job of keeping her series fresh.  I rated this one, even though I said the previous series book didn’t warrant a rating.
