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!
104 pages into The Twelve. So far this is even better then The Passage.
^ I still have yet to get to that series. Sounds promising.
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.
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.
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.
Books are weapons in the war of ideas.
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.
