April 3, 2020 — Karen and Erin
Book: Island in the Sea of Time
Book Discussion: Curse of Chalion – Lois McMaster Bujold
Very well-crafted book.
Good middle-aged character.
Shards of Honor started as a Star Trek Fanfic
You needed to read the first book.
Third book was very confusing in relation to the others.
More Vorkosigans may be coming.
We like Bujold
This doesn’t work as an audio book.
Now we are discussing foreign editions of Harry Potter books and their covers.
Overdrive books from the library.
