- A Bit on the Side, William Trevor
- Angle of Repose, Wallace Stegner

And also: I would love to bring back "What's on your nightstand," if you all are game. I just love hearing about the fun books you guys enjoyed! If you'd like to play, write to me at fresh.basil.blog AT gmail.com with a book or two you'd like to recommend. No need to have a blog yourself, of course!
