Egg Drop Dead
I picked this up a few days ago. It is the fifth title in the Noodle Shop mystery series. As is common in these cozy mysteries, the murder has occurred "off-screen" and our heroine is now on the case. For me, these books are more about character and less about the mystery itself. I'm only a few chapters in but there has already been some narrative development to our usual cast. It will be fun to see how this all pans out. I must admit, however, that I do hate how the author has to do some info dumpy stuff at the beginning of every book. I get that this is for casual readers who are picking up books in the series at random but, as a regular reader, I hate have to wade through those paragraphs.
For work, I'm still reading A Fool's Errand: Creating the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the Age of Bush, Obama, and Trump by Lonnie Bunch. The chapter on how the museum developed parts of its collection by diving into American's basements and attics was exciting. So much history is contained in family homes. Professionals tend to overlook it and that's a shame. That is where the real story of our history and culture resides.
