Book list for May 2014.

Junkyard Dogs. Craig Johnson*
I took this with me to Alabama and wound up reading a lot of it to Evelyn before naps and bedtime.  I did a little censoring and skipping, but this was easy enough to read aloud.  It's not something I'd thought about when reading any of the other Longmire mysteries, but now I have yet another reason to enjoy them!

You should have watched her eyelids drop after a couple of (again, censored) pages of 'Orlando.'

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Douglas Adams
I just wanted to get in my annual Adams, so I packed this for the beach as well.  It was a little trickier to read aloud, but I did.  This is my favorite Adams story because it's unexpectedly... gentle.  Something about the narrator and the characters' odd little bits of kindness toward one another makes me happy in ways that the rest of Adams's books don't.  A fun summer read.
