Recently won this book from Goodreads: Eddy Johnson, Book Dealer by John Wiley. And I really enjoyed reading it! With a nod to classic noir fiction, this book is both clever and fast-paced fun. It's set in Austin, Texas, in the 1980s. Local book dealer, Eddy Johnson, is personable, quick-thinking, and resourceful. And lucky! I liked him from page one. And I loved the crazy world of book dealers, collectors, mobsters, blackmail and shady deals that Wiley creates in this entertaining mystery. This was a 4-star read for me. And I hope that Wiley writes many more books about Eddy Johnson!

A favorite game of mine: Star Realms
This game is both easy to learn and very fun to play. There's even a cooperative game-playing option if you want to work together as a team. My nephew, Daniel, taught me how to play it, and I immediately loved it. If you're looking for a new game this summer to play as a family, I recommend this one.
And one last quote now that it's June and summer has begun:
Happy Summer...and Happy Reading!
