What I'm Reading Now: 12 October 23

Just the one:A mind to murder, by PD James. The office manager of a psychology practice is murdered, and the other employees seem more interested in offering their professional assessments of the murderer than figuring out who it is. There are some tidy character portraits, and I was bamboozled until the end. James isn't my favourite writer, but she has real skills.

I have yet to procure a local library card or even browse, and I'm giving serious consideration to at least two projects that will cut into my reading time (not to mention NaNoWriMo, which is rapidly approaching)... my leisure plans are not turning out as expected. Ah, well. I hope you'll forgive me.
