01:01 am - Cape Cod, etc.

AD8A8945_au_g

I wanted to take photos of Cape Cod in the winter, covered in snow, so I went there two weeks ago, right around when Boston was under several feet of snow. Took photos around Plymouth, Cape Cod, and went up to Middlesex Fells near Boston.

I was very surprised by the ice on the bay in Cape Cod and the huge difference between low tide and high tide (impressive in the summer, more so in the winter).

More photos on Flickr.

12:37 pm - Die Again



Die Again by Tess Gerritsen is the 11th book in her Rizzoli & Isles series of books (also a TV series, but not one I follow). This one is perhaps the best in the series yet.

01:20 am - The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair



The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair by Joel Dicker was an excellent novel. Don't let the 600+ pages or some of the negative reviews discourage you, it is a fast fun read.

Writer and professor Harry Quebert lives in a small town in Maine. Many years earlier he has a secret love affair with a 15 year old girl. On the night they were to elope she disappears in circumstances involving the murder of a witness. Quebert remains in town, publishes a bestseller and never quite moves on. Then 35 years later the girl's body is discovered buried in Quebert's garden and he is promptly arrested for the murder. Quebert's student/mentee who is suffering from writer's block after the publication of his own first successful novel decides to investigate the murder and write a book to try to exonerate his mentor. There are many twists and turns, flashbacks, present day interviews, etc. as more and more of the story is revealed.
