    Rueful Potato Reading Recommendations

    Rue Dog and Potato Cat are the chroniclers of my home library. Here are a couple of our more recent reads:

    I was attacked by a cat the night before last night. I apologise if I am less than pro-cat, and probably my hand will be amputated, unless I visit a chemist, or wash very soon.

    Memories are of reading five big books this last year passed.

    I project to read rather more books in 2021. Fussy, unless the narrator shares my every perspective I reject most stories - especially these sci-fi stories. Terrible experience on a sci-i forum... members spend their lives talking the Tolkien & the Star Trek hobbies. Thinking to form evil syndicate to eliminate all Hobbit networks? PM for evil details.

    I had started out 2020 with this high-flown idea of reading some authors who were unfamiliar to me. Can't say I've done a great job with this but there were a few:

    Catherine Steadman. Mr. Nobody and Something in the Water. I liked Mr. Nobody a bit better but they were both pretty good.

    Richard K. Morgan. I was putting off reading this for some reason and when I finally did it was really really good cyberpunk.

    C.J Box. I've enjoyed any of his books that I've picked up. Joe Pickett series especially.

    Happened across these last week. Munched through them in a couple hours. Ancient Eygpt has never been quite this much fun! A great series for those hard to please readers.

    This lovely bit of taboo was an intriguing read, given the fact that the Mutter Museum is on my bucket list.

    World of Wonders is a bite sized delight.

    I just started listening to this audiobook and it's a delight. If you're a Star Wars fan it's nice to hear C-3PO's actor's gentle voice describing how the character came to be and what it was like to play the role in the Star Wars movies wearing a 60+ pound suit.
