The Furthest Station (Peter Grant #5.7) by Ben Aaronovitch. Pretty good continuation of the series, but not great. Not sure if it was me or the book, but I kept getting tangled up and having to go back and reread bits.
The Question of the Missing Head (An Asperger’s Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Samuel is an Aspie (of the very male type, familiar to many) who has recently started a business answering questions. He is not a private investigator, which he has to explain to people quite frequently.
The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband (An Asperger’s Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Pretty good continuation of the series – enough so that I’m on the wait list for books 3 and 4 at my library.
Written Off (Mysterious Detective Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman. Pretty good mystery about a mystery author who’s contacted by a man who bears an uncanny similarity to the main character in the mystery series she writes…
Edited Out (Mysterious Detective Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman. I didn’t find the second book quite as enjoyable as the first, but now I’m curious how long the author can sustain this amusingly ridiculous premise.
Asperger’s on the Inside by Michelle Vines. Ok autobiographical account of growing up in Australia with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome. I still can’t complete figure out why this one didn’t work for me. The spectacular overuse of exclamation points was a tiny part of it, I’m sure – it’s hard to read a book that exuberant.

The NASA photos of the LA fires is so frightening. That smoke could be headed our way at any moment. My heart breaks for LA.
May, no one can see the lunch bag, thanks to you.

I read that as Kitty Pleasures Calendar and was disappointed. 😀
I do not think the lunch bad cooler exist
A recent post from blodeuedd..Anthology review: Amid the Winter Snow
I love the knitting and moon landing link! Also the list of Seanan McGuire books. I have also added some library card socks to my wishlist. 😉
AND OMG. The list of “Coco” references was exactly what I’ve been looking for since watching the movie last weekend! (Loved the movie, by the way. So worth seeing.)

…so does that mean you managed to snag the Nasa women LEGO set??
on that gift list, the microwaveable slippers are cool the first time, but then you’re putting things that have been on your feet, and touching the floor, into your food preparation chamber :/ Short of buying a second microwave just for them, I could not use these.
I agree about Furthest Station, but still, another book in the series! I never knew about Norway House. And textiles and NASA – I spent some time playing the coding game on Google the other day. That’s the extent of my knowledge!

I do not remember ever seeing an island in Lake Harriet, let alone a loon. (We lived about 3 blocks from that lake for 20 years.)
A recent post from kmkat..You just never know when yarn will come in handy.
I had a huge collection of Christmas ornaments I’d collected from my travels but I can’t find them! It’s very sad so have to start afresh!
