If you want to read three books at one time, I strongly recommend one be Norwegian crime fiction, one have a main character named Queenie, and one be about vegetables. Not talking vegetables. Just regular vegetables.
First things first: The Bat is the first Harry Hole novel by Jo Nesbo. It involves a serial killer like the other Harry Hole books, though it is not as graphic as some of the later ones. It's also set in Australia instead of Norway and included things about aboriginal culture that were completely unknown to me. There were some very likable characters in this book. I enjoy reading about characters that I like. Recommended.
Then there is The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. If you read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry you must read this. It completes a story that you didn't know needed completing but after you read about Queenie you will understand what I mean. If we closed down a bunch of the ICU's in the United States, and built more free standing hospice houses, and fixed the medicare regulations so that people could spend the last month of their life there if they needed to ... we could change the whole experience of death in America. For the better. Highly recommended.
Last but not least is The Broad Fork by Hugh Acheson. I have two words for this book. Veggie porn. Look at the photos below and tell me you don't agree.
I checked it out from the library but may have to add it to the vegetable cookbook collection that lives permanently at my house. Recommended.
