Recently finished The Power by Naomi Alderman. Excellent, a kind of gender flip dystopian. Also just read Thirst by Benjamin Warner. Engrossing, and the suburban setting was perfect for this kind of "what would you do" tale, but I sorta hated the ending.

I have quite the line up waiting for my holiday break. Can't wait to read uninterrupted by thoughts of papers to grade.

and thought, that's a strange choice for a book club

I'm assuming you meant this one?

Sue Grafton died today. I really, really liked her light-hearted, easy-to-read and very enjoyable style - could easily be entertained the whole day. RIP Kinsey...

The Rooster Bar by Grisham.

Somewhat of a sad commentary on the demise of our once glorious public education system.
