Meet the Font Detective who Ferret Out Fakery

This was certainly an interesting article.  Any thoughts that I had (which had never occurred to me) about forging any kind of document have gone out the window.  The hours that it would take for me to find the ‘right’ font would probably negate any potential benefit.

All jesting aside, it is fascinating that individuals are willing to dedicate themselves to learning about fonts and how to identify their many differences.  This does give me some peace of mind that individuals typing up false documents and pre dating them will be caught.  Often individuals make up nonsense and expect people to take them at face value.  It is reassuring that some are trying to prevent that from happening.


Rapture in Death by J. D. Robb

In my pursuit to re-read each of the books in the In Death series I stumbled across this gem.  I am truly enjoying rediscovering why I read this series to begin with.  This is a suspenseful novel that at times makes you think that Eve is creating links out of the most tenuous of connections but in the end the killer surprises you and you see where she was going all the time.  I love novels that have twists and turns.  I have to admit some of the scenes were heartrending thought that aspect only makes the conclusion all the more satisfying.  I really enjoy these fast paced, elaborate novels and cannot wait to read more.


Random Audio Additions

In Addition to reading the article “Is Audio Really the Future of the Book”

I have been listening to a great number of Audio Books.  Due to a family health problem I have not had a lot of free time or attention to do much extracurricular library research, though I have been able to get through an inordinate amount of audio books.  Many of them were ‘re-reads’ but some were new.

Among the re-reads are:

Origin in Death; Conspiracy in Death; Indulgence in Death; Promises in Death; Salvation in Death; Betrayal in Death; Judgement in Death; Loyalty In Death; Witness in Death; and Brotherhood in Death by J.D Robb. As well as Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich.

The New Audio Books that I have read are:

Apprentice in Death by J. D. Robb and Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich.

These 13 Audio books have certainly pushed forward my goal for the Year, though I will still probably not make it.

I also re-read several Shelly Laurenston Books, namely:

The Mane Squeeze; Beast Behaving Badly; Wolf With Benefits; Bear Meets Girl; Big Bad Beast; Mane Attraction; Mane Event; Bite Me; and The Beast in Him.

I guess I was more prolific than I though by reading 9 books to escape what reality I could not change.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading all that I could.  I will hope to continue reading even prolifically for the next few weeks until the years end.

A Scone to Die For by H.Y. Hanna

Scone to die forThis was a decent book.  The plot moved along at a good clip and we were introduced to several interesting characters.  The main character is quirky with a family that makes you grateful for your own.  Going from a fast paced financial world to opening a tea shop; running into an old flame; along with a murder or two the main character certainly has a busy week or so.

If you are looking for a quirky British mystery with a bit of Oxford thrown in for the fun of it, then this is the read for you.  It is not an extremely action packed, fast paced novel, but it does not lag either.   A good, fun, light read.
