Finished The Legend of Sleepy Hallow. Payoff wasn't quite what I had hoped for.

Also finished The Elementals by Michael McDowell. Kind of a Southern Gothic that takes place in the 70's on an isolated part of the Alabama coast. Evil spirits do evil things there.

Started The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Went to a book signing last night to pick up Alta California, by Nick Neely. The author traveled by foot to retrace the route, as closely as possible, of the first European expedition to explore the coast from San Diego to San Francisco by land. So far just read the prologue last night after getting home with it. I think I'll like it.

Finished listening to Murder in Vegas: New Crime Tales of Gambling and Desperation, short stories edited by Michael Connelly. Mostly cliched and trite short stories. Not recommended. None of the stories were written by Connelly and none measure up to his Harry Bosch or Lincoln Lawyer standard.

Started listening to A Conspiracy of Faith, by Jussi Adler-Olsen. It is the third novel in the Department Q series of books about a police team from Copenhagen working Danish cold cases.

I recently read Stephen King's "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon", which was pretty good at the end, and I just finished "Revival", which was pretty good all the way through. 👍
