Words Without Music, by Philip Glass (left over from previous haul, released April 2015)I remember enjoying the Fresh Air interview with Philip Glass about this book, but I just couldn’t get into the book itself.

I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool, by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella (Undated).303 pages of generic tripe. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness, by Paula Poundstone (May 2017) Definitely brought me some happiness. News of the World , by Paulette Jiles (Undated)Read in entirety during my flight back from the conference. A Western that is both simple and complex simultaneously. Made me well up at the end.

Unraveling (Unblemished, Book 2), by Sara Ella (July 11, 2017)First one was okay, second one is pretty clunky.
The Writing Desk, by Rachel Hauck (July 11, 2017)Kind of heavy-handed with the Christian elements of the story, but a good story nonetheless.
Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler, by Bruce Henderson (July 2017)Completely fascinating story of specially-trained multilingual interrogators in WWII. A local author, too!
