Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

I just finished How the Light Gets In. Like Robert Goddard, Penny makes fiction so real. I was almost ready to look up the "famous people', when I saw the author's note at the end.

Also--you know you've been reading to many Gamache mysteries when you cringe whenever someone says they are 'fine' (including when you use the word yourself).

Yes, I feel the same way about 'fine!' :D Can’t wait for the next book, Kingdom of the Blind, due out in November!

I have a trial subscription to Acorn TV, and I watched the movie adaptation of Still Life this afternoon. Kitchentease was right. Glad I read the book first, as it was much better. I like Nathaniel Parker, but I was just rather confused through the whole movie. It was like they were all in a hurry. And I didn't like the way they depicted Jane's living room.

You Know you've been reading too many Armand Gamache novels when you pull out of your driveway and see this across the street and think, "THREE PINES!" (Even though they’re not pines).

Of course! :biggrin:
I actually sent away for the pins with three pine trees! Quite nice, I gave one each to my two sisters.

Have you seen this new (I think) website where Louise Penny offers annotations about her writing process for each book?!

I put my name in the queue at my library to read the next Gamache book in the series, A Better Man, due out August 27. Thankfully, I am second in line. Although who know when my library will actually get it (it says its on order).. :waiting:

Today I pre-ordered the audiobook of A Better Man from Audible!
It’s read by Robert Bathurst, whose voice is beginning to sound better to my ears. He’s a decent enough reader, but Ralph Cosham was superb!

Just picked up my copy of A Better Man at the library! I was second in line for it. I know what I'm doing this weekend (when I'm not working)! :biggrin:
