I've just started Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights by Katha Pollitt. So far it's interesting.

I'm about halfway through Welcome to Nightvale: A Novel, based on the podcast Welcome to Nightvale. So far it's like the podcast but longer, which is to say it's surreal, sometimes spooky and sometimes hillarious.

I have endless piles of impulsively bought books that are waiting patiently to be read. This month, I have started on This Idea Must Die: Scientific Theories That Are Blocking Progress. It is a non-fiction edited book with bite sized chapters in which leading scientists argue against ideas in their fields. So far it is quite dull, with occasional interesting moments. Perhaps it is time to swap it for another book!
I've stepped away from popular fiction this mont and have read some interesting and somwhat different novels.

I've just finished a book calle Gone by the very talented Australian author Jennifer Mills. I would call it literary rather than popular fiction. It relates the tale of a young man, just out of prison who is hitchhiking home to WA to face his demons.

Prior to that I read A State of Symmetry by Paul Clingman. This is about the trial of a South African magistrate charged with two murders. It moves from the present day trial to the past and traces the lives of the murderer and murdered to the day of th murder. I found the trial chapters a little dry but there was a build up in suspense as the connection betweent he three people is not revelaed until the last.

Prior to that Sliding in the Snow Stone by Andy Szpuk. Andy tells his father's true story of a childhood in Ukraine under first Soviet rule and then through the 2nd world war. Not only a good historical story but an insight into the life and feels of displacedd people - Andy's father ends up as a post war refuge in the UK where he made his life.

'Why Did a They Do It'.......true Aussie crime, just collected from Library!
Got good review, so am looking forward to reading it!
