Just finished the March 1906 edition of magazine Talking Machine World. This was a U.S. magazine published for those involved in the business side of the record industry, particularly aimed at retailers of records and record players. Along with articles, there's also many ads trying to convince retailers why they should sell a particular record player or a particular range of records at their store.

"The Red Pole of Macau" by Ian Hamilton, part of his Ava Lee series. I bought it years ago on a whim, without knowing absolutely anything about the author or the character. The description sounded interesting, some kind of international thriller. I never touched the book until a week ago when I was literally about to leave home on a trip and remembered that I didn't have anything to read. I quickly decided on this one, since it was not very big and was probably going to be light reading, appropriate for airplanes and airports.
I have been reading it before going to sleep every night and I am enjoying it so much that some days I end up staying up past 1 AM. I will probably look for the other books in the series now.
