9. In The Distance

By Hernan Diaz (256 pp)

I actually finished this a week ago and it was buried on my desk. A couple of friends read this and thought I would like it and they were right. It's kinda like Cormac McCarthy but exchange some of the dark and grim with loopy. It's about a kid who comes to American in the 1800s from Sweden and ends up in the west, alone. Really good.

8. W is for Wasted

By Sue Grafton (483 pp ebook)

I must have picked this up on sale. It was on my phone and I needed something easy to get into and this was it. This one was a bit of a slog. It cracks me up how often there are long descriptions of completely mundane activities. But I love the setting and the timeframe and Kinsey and sorry that Y is the last book.
