When you’re on a beach vacation, having a good book to read — or maybe, say, five of them — is essential. On this trip I’ve enjoyed Bill Bryson’s wonderful, funny, and fascinating book about the summer of 1927 and the latest Harry Bosch book by Michael Connelly, and I’ve got two books of short stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes and a non-fiction book about Wall Street greed in queue.
I love books with continuing characters and their adventures, so when a new Connelly Bosch book appears I snap it up. There’s only one problem: I can’t put them down. I zip through them, relish every word and Boschian revelation, and immediately am hungry for more. I hope Connelly, and Bosch, live until they’re 120.
