Finished Pavilion of Women (excellent by-the-way) and starting The Fiend in Human.

For those that are unaware, the series of novels take place before season 1 of 24. They are early cases/assignments of Jack Bauer's. Therefore Chappelle, Walsh, Tony, & Nina are all present. Each chapter is 1 hour of the day.
Very cool - I may have to check this out.

I enjoyed it quite a bit (much better than Prey, IMO). It's long, but never bores.

I'm also looking forward to Koontz's most recent Odd Thomas novel. The guy has changed his style over the last couple of years and in my modest opinion, it's for the better. Seems like he let's his light side show and it works.

Agreed - Koontz' last few years have been his best, IMO.

I'm reading this too right now (Forever Odd). I should be finished with it by tonight (it's a quick read, but good). Then I might start 1776 or Skeleton Crew by Stephen King.

Just finished A Farewell to Arms and Blue Like Jazz. Both were great! I'm not sure what I'm reading next; probably some more Hemmingway or maybe some Jane Austen

What do you think about DR? The religous stuff grates at times, but Ive been following alot of the financial steps he lays out and I have to say, its simple but effective.

I'm in the middle of A Tale of Two Cities. While I've had some very bad experiences with books from the 1800s and early 1900s (Lost Horizon and The Awakening come to mind), A Tale of Two Cities isn't half bad. It's fast paced and the writing style is fairly interesting.

Takes Ambroses' Band of Brothers from Major Winter's point of view . Good read if you enjoyed the HBO mini-series or book.

Woohoo! I was searching all over Amazon and Barnes & Noble, trying to figure out the title and author of a novel I saw at B&N the other day. Thought I'd take a shot here and here is that very cover!

Did you like the book, travlr?

Between my TV and movie viewing, I haven't had the time to read a novel in over 6 months. Visiting the new (and huge) Barnes & Noble at Ala Moana Shopping Center last week, I really felt a pang of how much I miss reading. . .

It's a one week checkout from the library, so I had to put this on hold:


I started with the book-on-cd but I had to return it because someone else had it reserved, so I checked out the print version.

I've got a bunch of Patricia Briggs checked out, they all look like 'high fantasy' or something, I need to find the order to read them in.

Recently finished Jodi Picoult's The Tenth Circle, which was quite good. Very reminiscent of In the Bedroom, althoug the last quarter of the book goes a little long. The graphic novel segments are a pretty nice addition, as is the hidden message waiting to be found in the panels.



Now reading:



This is a pretty intense and eye-opening book so far (only one hundred pages or so in) and certainly an important part of US history that isn't delved into like this very often.
