Day 20: Directed Verdict by Randy Singer

My recommendation today comes from my daughter, Angela.  Directed Verdict by Randy Singer. Yes, that's sort of cheating, isn't it?  However, when we started this year with a goal of reading 100 books, she was at 38 books when everyone else was somewhere around 8-10.  Getting a recommendation from her is going to be short and sweet, since she's a busy busy woman.

"Directed Verdict.  Oh, that one was really good!"  said Angela.  This isn't her 31 Days series.  She doesn't blog.  This was as much as I was going to get from her for this day's post.

The October Tide Has Turned

This month has taken an unexpected turn for me.  I knew 31 consecutive posts would be a challenge in and of itself, without any surprises.  However, there have been several surprises in the past week that have absorbed large chunks of time, tons of my emotional energy, and almost all of my daily study/writing time.

There are times when no matter how good the intentions are, life throws a party in the middle of our schedule.  Sometimes it's an important party, and other times it's as though a drunken mob has invaded your quiet corner of the world, cranked up the music and spilled stuff all over your living room.  This week has been a bit of both.

So, I will do my best to bring you frequent book recommendations (though perhaps not daily), ALWAYS post the free Kindle Friday news, and at the month's end there will be a prize drawing that every reader will appreciate. I promise! All you have to do to enter is comment on a post during the month of October. 

IF you would like to do a guest post and recommend a book, this would be a great time for us to collaborate on such a project!  I have one in the works already, but it would be fun to see some of my bloggy friends' words here on Pentriloquist!


  1. Life does have a way of taking priority over blogging, occasionally, even for me. You KNOW I can't help you with anything book related. Sorry!

  2. Sometimes when I am at the library, I need to grab a book in a hurry because I am there with my kids. The library purposely has a small section of adult fiction in the children's section for people like me, I suppose. One of the random books I grabbed was The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini. It's actually in the middle of the series about the Elm Creek Quilters. I wasn't sure it would be a good fit for me but I was really surprised at how much I have enjoyed the other books in this series and am captivated by the characters.

    1. I read some of Jennifer's books, but it's been a long time. Thanks for sharing!
