Booksie's Bookshelves, March 20, 2016

It's the first day of spring!  NC has been in the 70's last week, although our weekend is cooler than that.  My Kindle Fire died last week and I bought a new one which came this week.  It's improved, I think, and they fixed the design flaw on my old one that drove me nuts.  It's not been that long since I posted a Booksie's Bookshelves but enough books have arrived that I need to do another one.  I'm in the middle of several interesting books but things keep taking time away from reading.  Between helping a senior fill out all the forms for college, an older dog who had a tooth get infected, March madness basketball and planning for several upcoming trips, I've been doing more busywork and less time reading.  Here is what's come through the door:

1.  The Prelapsarians, John Gaiserich, fantasy, sent by publisher
2.  The Wander Society, Keri Smith, nonfiction, sent by publisher
3.  Battlestorm, Susan Krinard, fantasy, sent by publisher

21.  Queen Of The Night, Alexander Chee, historical fiction, sent by review site
22.  Breakdown, Jonathan Kellerman, mystery, sent by review site

Here's what I'm reading:
