I've just started reading The Potluck Club Troubles Brewing. This is the second book of the series. I LOVED the first one! It was a slow start for me, but I powered through and I'm so glad I did.

Christopher | 4 comments I just finished Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz. I highly recommend this book. Check out my review. The book is well written and author brilliantly keeps your attention and imagination in suspense. I liked his style so much that my next book will be one of his.

For Sci~Fi Summer @ the Library I'm still reading through the Foundation Universe series by Isaac Asimov...
I'm hoping to finish Robot Visions by Isaac Asimov Robot Visions & The Positronic Man by Isaac Asimov The Positronic Man (the last 2 of the 6 prequels in the Robot series) in the next few days so I can start on the actual Robot trilogy.
My goal is to have this series finished by the end of July & read the Galatic Empire series in August.

For something light & fun, I'm reading the Piggly Wiggly series by Robert Dalby...
I just started book #2 Kissing Babies at the Piggly Wiggly (Piggly Wiggly, #2) by Robert Dalby Kissing Babies at the Piggly Wiggly & already have A Piggly Wiggly Wedding (Piggly Wiggly, #3) by Robert Dalby A Piggly Wiggly Wedding & A Piggly Wiggly Christmas (Piggly Wiggly, #4) by Robert Dalby A Piggly Wiggly Christmas checked out. These are great porch swing/poolside reads for the summer :)
