So what have you been reading this week?

Do you decorate for Halloween?

10/21 I finished The Chaperone which I quite liked.

10/21 I also finished My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece. I'm glad I read it.

10/22 I finished Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl, which was fun and somewhat deeper than these sometimes are.

10/23 I finished Two Boys Kissing, which was wonder-full!

Currently reading Lady Lazarus, which is urban fantasy/ historical fiction/ Jewish mythology. More later, of course.

I do decorate for Halloween. So far, I have gotten the box out where it was in the attic...

 I got side tracked by library books but I'm back to reading Cuckoo's Calling on by Kobo. I also have The Gingerbread Cookie Murder on the go.

 I used to have a few Halloween decorations but during one of my editing clean outs, I gave them away.  I don't have enough space to keep things that I only use once a year.

I finished A Guide for the Perplexed by Dara Horn, a novel loosely based on the Biblical story of Joseph. I learned a lot about Maimonides; Solomon Schechter and the Cairo Geniza,  a storage area of the great synagogue where thousands of scraps of ancient documents were stored awaiting burial in a Jewish cemetery; the function of memory and how we  interpret events; the nature of fate, computer software; modern kidnapping and ransom, and family relationships.

I've started Jewish Pirates of the Carrbbean by Edward Kritzler from the synagogue library.  The book has 45 pages of notes, but leaves out some important information I've read, specificlly about Columbus,  that would help explain some of the material. So far Kritzler seems to jump around a lot, but I'll reserve djudgement until I finish.

We don't do anything special for Halloween except give out candy to the kids who come around.
