    I really need to brush up on history more... and finally get a new phone so I can play podcasts and more audiobooks.

    Without getting into a religious discussion; it would bore you to death if it's not something you find interesting. I will point out one interesting opinion from the book. If the bible is the word of God, why wasn't it created by him? Never to be misinterpreted nor lost or destroyed through the ages. Do not discuss further as Dan will sack us LOL.

    Just about to finish up a little story about Stevie Nicks. Pretty much typical sex, drugs, and rock n roll. Learned somethings I didn't know.

    Audible has Paul Tremblay's new collection listed as new in NON-Fiction. Are they trying to tell us something?

    Finished this and wasn't overly impressed.

    Just about to finish The Dead Drink First. A WWII piece about PTSD and returning fallen soldiers back to US soil. I've really enjoyed.

    I really enjoyed The Dead Drink First. I have considered going back and finding the book it is about.

    Cemetery Dance introduced me to Michael Koryta with 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. Looking for more from this author I found 'If She Wakes' on Audible. Early on this one felt a lot like 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. In Chapter three a direct link between the stories was revealed. I am not sure if this is a sequel or a stand alone story taking place in the same universe. I am enjoying it so far.

    Just about to finish Midnight in Chernobyl. This event and story has always captivated me since it happened. It's a super technical listen though.

    I enjoyed 'If She Wakes' as much as 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. I initially had concerns that it was too close to 'Those' but it was a unique story. While it is not a direct sequel it takes place in the same universe. This one is set up for a sequel. We will see if that happens. Overall a very good story.

    Glad to hear that. I'll have to give it a read. I really liked Those Who Wish Me Dead.

    Currently listening to Plum Island by Nelson DeMille and narrated by Scott Brick. He's doing a great job. Good story. For those interested, there is a lot of interior dialogue, something some people just hate.

    Currently listening to Hearts in Atlantis. Nearing the end of Low Men in Yellow Coats. I remember enjoying this back when I read but I am surprised at how much I am enjoying it. Just a fantastic story on so many levels!
