Just finished the Passage yesterday.

I know there aren't many spy fans here unless they make a movie out of the book, butThe Tourist was a great book. The newest Milo book just came out so I'm starting that now. . .

I'm about 1/4 of the way in so far, and am really enjoying it so far:

Read this last summer.

Lost City of Z is a great read. It's tough to imagine exploring in such harsh, remote and dangerous locations.

Finished The Devil You Know (Felix Castor Series) by Mike Carey, my first read on a Kindle. Trying to find a good series similar to Dresden Files to fill my Summer reading.

Easiest way is top go on google image type in the book title and click on the link. Click on "See Full Size Image'. Copy and paste the url such as :

http://www.criticalgamers.com/archiv...eBoardgame.jpg

then place [img] at the beginning and [/img] at the end of url

Home Is the Sailor by Day Keene

This is the 12th Hard Case Crime book in a row that I've read and I may take a short break after this one so as not to get burned out.

Although some websites don't like you doing that and may sub in a rude image to teach you not to hotlink.

An alternate way is to use Goodreads to find the book, right click on the cover image and select either "copy image location" or "properties" (depending on your browser) to get the URL.
