  3. Another great month for you! Too hot there for anything else. The temps in the desert are just crazy. I won't be visiting the state till Oct. I wish you some cooler temps in August & more great reads.

    1. You are wise to stay away. The other day my A/C stopped working and I nearly lost it. Luckily I got it fixed the next morning.

    You had a nice month with many interesting reads (a few on my TBR list too).

    1. I will be interested to hear what you thought about the movie. Reading is being very good to me these days.

  5. You picked a good one as a favorite. The Mars Room was an amazing book. I remember reading Blind Descent several years ago and suffering severe claustrophobia. When we visited Carlsbad Caverns a few years later, I did my best to exorcise those particular demons.

    1. It was incredible how well Nevada Barr wrote about Anna's claustrophobia. Fortunately you got to go and face it down!
