Silence of the Flans by Laura Bradford. Dave brought both this and the next book home from the library for me. He knows my weakness for puns. Neither of these books should trouble you to search them out, but should they appear on your night table after a long day, they'll be a perfectly inoffensive way to wind down.
Roux the Day by Linda Wiken. I feel bad for this book now. I just googled the book title with its punnish spelling to double check the author's name, and I had to scroll down several results on page 2 of the returns before I found it. Bummer.
The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail by Tim Moore. Unlike many of Tim Moore's books, this one was not a super-delight. I start it in March and put it down, then just picked it up in a book lull this month. He's doing one of his ridiculous stunt tours, riding an East German shopping bike over a route more than 10,000 km long. The thing is, he's miserable the whole way, legitimately so, and it's just not a fun read. I hope he treats himself (and his readers) to something a little less grueling next time.
The Outside Boy by Jeanine Cummins. (Full disclosure: the Dave is a friend of Jeanine's. If I didn't thoroughly enjoy this book, I wouldn't be listing it here. I just wouldn't mention it at all. But it was really good, so here it is.) The story is about Irish travellers, also called Pavee, or gypsies if you want to be rude. It focuses on one boy in particular as he learns more about his past, his mother, and where she came from, which causes him to rethink his own life on the road. I can't say with any kind of authority if the dialect or the culture is captured accurately in this novel, but I will say it rings absolutely true.
The Human Universe by Professor Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen. I started reading this book more than a year ago. It was a tough go. I just don't absorb information about astronomy or physics very quickly, apparently... It is based on a BBC series. I wonder if the TV version would have been more successful for me. In good news, I can now return it to its owner.
