The second is Prodigal Summer, which was recommended to me in a comment from Nina.
Wow, how cool is that! Yeah, I think I'm going to like this book.
I read a variety of books but my favorites are mysteries by favorite authors Sue Grafton, Tony Hillerman, Janet Evanovich, Dick Francis, and Mary Higgins Clark. I'm not much into the really graphic sex or violence....can't watch it in a movie and can't read about it either.
I occasionally throw in a romance novel (Debbie Macomber or Danielle Steel) just for variety. I also enjoy most fiction and also biographies. However, I have never been able to get into science fiction, the Harry Potter series, or books with mythical themes (like JR Tolkien). Yeah, I'm just kinda weird that way.
When I was a kid, I really loved the Nancy Drew mysteries and all of the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
MONARCH BUTTERFLY UPDATE
Today, two butterflies emerged! I knew when I went to work this morning that it was going to happen while I was gone, so took the precaution of locking the monarch ranch in the bathroom (away from the kitty monitor).
Although this isn't a very good picture, I hope you can see both of them (one is holding onto the stick in the center of the picture). This time there was a male and a female. They were released to their new home in Monarch Waystation 1515.
