Just started The Necromancer's House by Christopher Buehlman. I've seen rave reviews for it on multiple platforms.

Janet Morgan publishes in this book a rather interesting Agatha Christie's letter to her husband Max, describing one of the trips she made on the Orient Express, that gave her the setting and some of the characters too The Murder on the Orient Express.

Just stared "Service Model" from Adrian Tchaikovsky. Best to go into it knowing nothing. It's hilarious, and not at all what I was expecting after reading some other Tchaikovsky books.

“From my childhood I have been,’ said I, ‘the object of the untiring goodness of the best of human beings; to whom I am so bound by every tie of attachment, gratitude, and love, that nothing I could do in the compass of a life could express the feelings of a single day.”

In the mood for some fiction. Nonfiction has been too depressing lately for me to read. There's enough depressing things going on in the world right now, I don't need to add to it by reading about history and politics. 😆

"About his large bright eyes that used to be so merry, there was a wanness and a restlessness that changed them altogether. I cannot use the expression that he looked old. There is a ruin of youth which is not like age; and into such a ruin, Richard’s youth and youthful beauty had all fallen away.”

Bleak House

John Barry's Philadelphia Spelling Book Arranged Upon a Plan Entirely New becomes the first American book copyrighted.

John Barry was a schoolmaster of the Free School of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. While no complete copy of the book exists today, the Rare Book and Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress has the printed title page and two pages of text that Barry originally deposited.
