    You better believe it and he gets major points for that.

    Just finished Thomas Perry's Old Man and a baseball book, Odd Man Out: A year on the Mound with a Minor League Misfit, enjoyed them both. Old Man is sort of a Bourne Identity story for seniors LOL!! I love Perry's first book, The Butcher's Boy, one of the best Hit Man books ever written!

    ^ I still have yet to get to that series. Sounds promising.

    Butcher's Boy sounds interesting. Might have to look into it.

    I just finished Great Expectations then The Old Man and the Sea. I really enjoyed both. I'm about to tackle Moby Dick. Trying to work my way through more classics this year.

    It's an excellent series and I think The City of Mirrors is the best book in the trilogy. Definitely worth reading...

    I haven't read Butcher's Boy, but I read the sequel Sleeping Dogs (I didn't know it was part of an ongoing series) and it was outstanding. I'll have to give Butcher's Boy a try as well one of these days.

    Finished Nathaniel West's Miss Lonelyhearts yesterday and almost done now with The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. It's been weekend of heavy reading.

    There is a 3rd book in the series, The Informant 2011. I have all 3 books, but I'm missing a good 1st edition of Butchers Boy. I have a serviceable Ex-library edition.

    I need to get to this. I loved the first book. Kinda thinking about doing a reread before tackling the other two books.

    I'm reading The Best Of Dark Moon Digest. I'm on the fourth story-Pearls by Ed Kurtz. This collection is really awesome. The stories are short and this book really is laid out well. I wish I'd grabbed this as my next-to-be-read a while ago.

    Just finished Tom Bouman's sequel to Dry Bones in the Valley, Fateful Mornings. Set in rural Pennsylvania, poor rural, fracked Pennsylvania, Bouman's books are full of pain and longing, but also hope, a very small measure of hope. Really enjoyed it, watch for the clues, they're there, but don't look for an easy solution, it's not.
