Happy Thursday! I hope you are tucked into a good book as we close in on the weekend. It’s school vacation week here in the Northeast and I’ve been taking full advantage of the library to keep the girls occupied during our mostly stay-cation. Is there a better human invention/concept than the public library? Ok, there probably is but I really, really like the library and how it continues to evolve in today’s digital society. Susan Orlean’s THE LIBRARY BOOK is a great recent read for bibliophiles that explores not just the LA library fire but also how library are adapting and remaining relevant in our current culture.

Enough rambling, on to this week’s edition of 3-2-1 Thursday. As promised, let me try for the most crime fiction news per word on the web.


Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:





A couple of quotes about libraries this week:

  • ‘The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man.’ —T.S. Eliot
  • The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library. —Albert Einstein



  • One of my favorite libraries is the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. I love buying lunch nearby and eating it, while reading a book of course, at one of the tables in the courtyard. Do you have a favorite library? What is your favorite part?


Until next Thursday, happy reading,


Author the Max Strong thriller series
