The shortest distance between two points ... is ... never mind.

I am fully planning on executing my plan for this 3-day weekend: I will not go on the computer. No Netflix. No Facebook. No emails. No surfing.

Nor will I cheat with my Kindle Fire. I am going to read.

I am also going to clean up my book piles throughout the house and organize.

No, I really want to do this. Here's the books:

I'm closing in on finishing THE MAYFAIR AFFAIR by Tracy Grant:

 About a quarter of the way into ANATOMY OF EVIL by Will Thomas:

Next up is THE GHOST FIELDS by Elly Griffiths.

This is 7th of 7 in series featuring Dr. Ruth Galloway, a forensic archaeologist, and Harry Nelson, a detective chief inspector, in the Saltmarsh area near Norfolk, England. Here's a description:
Norfolk is suffering from record summer heat when a construction crew unearths a macabre discovery—a downed World War II plane with the pilot still inside. Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway quickly realizes that the skeleton couldn’t possibly be the pilot, and DNA tests identify the man as Fred Blackstock, a local aristocrat who had been reported dead at sea. When the remaining members of the Blackstock family learn about the discovery, they seem strangely frightened by the news.  Events are further complicated by a TV company that wants to make a film about Norfolk’s deserted air force bases, the so-called Ghost Fields, which have been partially converted into a pig farm run by one of the younger Blackstocks. As production begins, Ruth notices a mysterious man lurking on the outskirts of Fred Blackstock’s memorial service. Then human bones are found on the family’s pig farm. Can the team outrace a looming flood to find a killer?

Published in 2015, it has 384 pages. 

On Monday, THE LEGER CONNECTION by Estelle Ryan will be on my Kindle.

This is 7th of 7 in series featuring Dr. Genevieve Lenard, nonverbal communication expert, art insurance investigator, and high functioning autistic. Here's a description: 
A video call from her dad leads top white-hat hacker Francine to four stolen masterpieces. And to a possible murder--in Brazil. Her frustration at being so far away is turned into anger when her loved ones are attacked and corrupt law enforcement officials stonewall their inquiries. Blackmail, a kidnapping and a blatant heist in their backyard in Strasbourg reveal a plan to use unregulated drone technology in a daring escape. Francine's concern for her best friend and her parents' safety has to take a back seat to her determination to save the lives of bystanders. Together with her team, she will do anything to stop these criminals from executing their brutal plan. If she's not already too late.
And I will nap. Because I know I will.

And because it's TGIF at last and to sneak in a little Arrow fix:

And, more seriously, remember what the holiday is about:

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

Much love,
PK the Bookeemonster
