Beach Reading?

It’s beach reading time of year. We see Heart of Barkness turning up on beach reading lists. Warning: there are no beach scenes in HOB. But there is the following, truncated to avoid spoilers:

Human tears leave a smell in the air, a bit like the ocean, but way tinier. I was picking up that smell in this room. It reminded me of our trip to San Diego. We’d surfed, me and Bernie! At first on the same board and later we each had one. I preferred sharing a board, but there’d been issues, possibly involving who stood where. When you’re in front you get that ocean spray full in the face. I was thinking about how much I love ocean spray full in the face when the door on the far side of the room opened and …

    We are enjoying the new book still. We know nothing of book covers though. One thing I am not enjoying is the piece of lamb that the human got from this crowded place we went…Greek…festival…something…and they got all of this food. Food everywhere. And I didn’t get any. No gyro. No hot dog. No French fries. No cake. Cake is a mystery. But lamb. I thought it might be a new treat. Or dinner. But it was not. But I guess it is the life of a skilled professional. Do I get hazardous duty pay? Whatever that may be. But I got ice cubes. Ice cubes are good. Because it’s really hot. Ice cubes are even good when it is not hot. The human put the shoes on me, which I did not like. Oh the indignity. Ruins the street cred. But I saw kids. Love kids. Love kids a lot. Never get enough time with the kids. Kids are my favorite. So are doors and escalators. I found some doors, but no escalators today. So two out of more than two is not too bad.
