It shouldn't surprise anyone that, when I get my new issue of Entertainment Weekly, I go directly to the 'book' section. And today had a couple of interesting surprises. Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews, which I just read and liked, has debuted at #7 on the Publishers Weekly, week of June 15-21, 2011, Fiction Top Ten list.
The next item to attract my attention was Mark Adams' Turn Right at Machu Picchu, about the ancient city built high in the Peruvian Andes. It turns out that this is the 100th anniversary of its 'discovery' by the Yale professor who became the prototype for Indiana Jones. EW gave the book a B+ but as a kid who seriously considered archeology as a career and was the 5th grade expert on the Incas, I am definitely reading this.
