Bouncing Off the Moon, by David Gerrold

All right! Another out of sequence posting. Bouncing Off the Moon by David Gerrold is the second (of 3, I think) book about the Dingillian brothers. Having successfully left earth just before the total collapse of the economy & all government/social infrastructure, they're now bouncing down to the moon. Once there, they stumble across interplanetary intrigue and industrial espionage. As with its predecessor, Jumping off the Planet, this was an enjoyable read. I particularly enjoyed the speculations on how a moon-based culture would evolve.

Summer Pleasures, by Nora Roberts

I actually read this book before I read Wild Mountain Thyme. Oh well, taking a look at how long it's been since I logged anything, you can see that I'm really not keeping up with my reading log. Summer Pleasures by Nora Roberts contains two short novels of the formula of girl meets guy; girl doesn't really like guy; girl & guy have torrid sex; girl & guy fall madly in love & live happily ever after. Definitely recreational reading.

Wild Mountain Thyme, by Rosamunde Pilcher

When Mom dropped off a box of books a month ago, I set this one aside to read. (Most of the books wound up at the second-hand bookstore.) Well, I finally got around to it, and enjoyed it very much. Wild Mountain Thyme wasn't overly complicated, just a sweet little romance.

Scarlet Feather, by Maeve Binchy

I forgot to log this one. I started reading Scarlet Feather several months ago & then stuck it back on the shelf. Pulled it out when I finished Stranger in Paradise and read it along the road. It's good -- though not as good as other books by Maeve Binchy.
