I have the latest Brad Thor, Code of Conduct featuring Brad Horvath on my Kindle waiting to be read and also a hardback coming from the UK by Stephen Booth, his series featuring two detectives, Cooper and Fry, The Murder Road, set in The Peak district in England, also been reading now and again The Year of Reading Dangerously, a fairly humorous look at what and how we read by Andy Miller. I am not able to download Kindle books from the UK for some strange reason, they are only available to certain places, mostly around the UK.

At the moment I have a book by David O,Neil, (the apostrophe comes out as an e with an accent on it, same with the question mark.) It is a WWII naval story about a flotilla of Motor Gun Boats, MGB,s and just finished a book by Peter Robinson called Aftermath, a particularly grim and dark book about a couple who abduct young women. He features Inspector Banks in his books and they usually are not quite as dark.

Hubby has just finished a Rosenfelt book, something about Tricks - he likes his writing.

I have to pull tiles and regrout in both of my bathrooms and I'm dreading it because I'm afraid what's under the tiles will need replacing and that is money we don't have at the time. And in the family room, you can hear new hollow places under some of the terra cotta floor tiles. That means something is going on with the floor slab in that lower part of the hose. Home ownership is just a big hole that you pour money into. If I was smart, I'd...

What? Oh!

Never mind.

Mo, I'm glad hubby likes David Rosenfelt's writing. I've throughly enjoyed his Andy Carpenter series.

Very funny, Dan...Not your tile problems. They're never funny.
But speaking of hose, which you did, I've found they're hot to wear in the summer time. :)

I was only talking about the lower part of the hose. Are both parts hot in the summer?

Deanie

That would be a yes, Dan. Don't believe me - trying wearing a pr this summer. :)

Panty hose ? Lordy I've not worn those in years '05? Not much to dress up for & in the winter I just go for a suit. Summer=a tan
Dan I'm sure things r different there because of heat & moisture but is ur underlayment bad? Moisture in a house - under the floor is a BAD thing!

I think in our master bath the underlayment is just too thin--it allows a very small amount of flex (we have a raised foundation with wood floors in most of the house) that over the years has caused the adhesive under the tiles and the grout between the tiles to break down. In our family room, which was an add-on by the previous owner, the slab must have cracks in it, because there are hollows under the tiles where there didn't used to be any. You can hear the differences when the dog's toenails are clicking around the room. Then in our other bathroom, there's a window (at face level in the shower) with a tiled sill. The sill has deteriorated over the years and the tile is separating from it ever so slightly. We don't use that shower more than a few times a year, and we avoid getting water on the sill when we do, so it hasn't been a priority (plus I'm afraid I'll have to retile the whole bathroom if the wall has framing that needs replacing. The tile is nearly 60 years old and isn't made anymore.).

I feel for ya Dan. I'll ask my husband if he has any thoughts. He's a floor guy.
Our shutters are from the 60"s and the width isn't made anymore - huge let down. That's all we lack on the garage !

I made shutters for our front windows but they're the simple plank type--no louvers. We never had shutters before that. They're just for looks. They don't really shut. They're non-shutting shutters. Don't try to say that 5 times fast.

Looks very nice Dan, very neat and tidy and cozy looking although you probably don't bother about cozy as it never gets cold enough. :D

Ha ha, not your guyses kind of cold! I had the windows open on Saturday afternoon letting all the fresh rain air into the house and after a while my wife surprised both of us by realizing she was COLD. It was maybe in the low 70s, but it's been so stinking hot and muggy that it did feel cool-ish.

Hope this gives u an avenue.

Just finished rather than currently reading, The Murder Road by Stephen Booth, more mystery maybe than murder set in the Peak District, very dark atmosphere throughout the book, farms barely surviving, lots of mud, bleak weather, altogether a bit of a depressing read. I usually enjoy his books featuring the Cooper and Fry main characters but this one just didn't grab me. Probably more suited to English readers who live in or near the Peak District in England, lots of names of well-known places (to them).

Also just finished Operation Blind Spot by William Peter Grasso, a unit of US troops are tasked to land on a small island occupied by the Japanese and take over the lookout and broadcasting outpost on the island in preparation for McArthur's big push in the Pacific. In the unit are two Nisei (Japanese extraction US troops) taken along as interpreters to translate what the Japanese are broadcasting from the outpost. This leads to some problems in the unit but it is quickly solved. A good WWII fiction read with lots of cracks at McArthur as the Supreme Commander - sounds as though he was disliked by the fighting men.

Looking forward to Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, After You by Jo Jo Moyes, and Blessed Are Those Who Mourn by Kristi Belcamino. All three will be released 9/29/15.

In October will be Hot Countries by Timothy Hallinan, Strong Light by Jon Land, Black In The Box by Russell Blake, and Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith.

I really have to make a list of these books Deanie, I think you probably like some of the same kind of books I do so I should pay attention. The Galbraith one I had a look at and it didn't catch my interest, wasn't that also the name of a philosopher?

I believe you would enjoy some of the books I read, but not all of them, Mo. You can always check 'em out at Amazon.com.
Robert Galbraith is the pen name used by J K Rowling. I enjoy her PI Cormoran Strike series.

I did know that was Rowling's pen name for that book and although I got it on Kindle I found it wasn't really interesting to me. The others I'll have to list them and check them out on Amazon as I can't possibly remember them without a note. :(

I read that earlier this year, I was not impressed
