For small books this is fine, it usually takes less than a minute for a decent sized book. However, if the book is slightly larger, I don't know, lets say, 438 pages, its slower than a snail and leaks more memory than a submarine with a screen door. All the while the interface is unusable to cancel opening the book. So the issue is two-fold, make the loading of books faster/ more asynchronous so it doesn't block the ui, and make it use far less memory while doing so.

I've improved this a lot by using Vuejs and ipc in 4e5738f . This is still laggy but that is due to adding images to the dom in general.

Sometimes the idea of reading another unabashed “women’s” novel, where the men have eyes like “beaten copper” and the ladies are perfect housekeepers who drink cups of “soy decaf cappuccino,” can be fairly disheartening. The decades have shown that, too often — as Virginia Woolf once predicted — women write about what goes on inside the houses, and men get to claim everything that goes on outside: building bridges and then blowing them up, seeking and providing oil for the lamps of China, going to war and making peace and then going to war again. It doesn’t seem fair.

The setting is the St. Angela primary school in Sydney, in a tightly knit Irish-Catholic community. Cecilia and Tess went to St. Angela as kids; Cecilia’s daughters go there now; and when Tess leaves her husband in a snit, she returns to Sydney and enrolls her son. Everything would be fine except that the school secretary, Rachel, inspires a quiet horror in those around her. Her daughter was killed more than 20 years ago while still in her early teens. The murderer has never been caught.

So, 100 pages in, this women’s novel turns into a murder mystery. The man whom Rachel most suspects of killing her daughter is a balding PE teacher at the school. (Many of the adults in this book don’t seem to stray far from St. Angela.) Rachel obsesses on this hapless guy, who has his own reasons for feeling guilty. And, to thicken the plot, Tess, the career woman, meets an old flame and commences an intense affair. Why isn’t she more heartbroken about her husband taking up with her cousin? She asks herself that question from time to time, but the sex with her paramour is too good and she’s having too much fun.

With a new year just around the corner, we dug into the GreenBiz vault to bring you a list of some of the best books of 2016 (assuming you already caught up on our earlier round-up of the year's best summer reads, of course).

In a year marked by extreme ups and downs on environmental issues, here's a rundown of what to read on climate, cities and more:

This title might not be a shocker, given that GreenBiz Executive Editor Joel Makower is a co-author, but the book neatly encapsulates the interdisciplinary nature of sustainability.
