I gave up on the Roald Dahl complete short stories. They all start sounding the same.

Started A Game of Thrones.

Also started:
Medicine Women, Curanderas, and Women Doctors
Matilda
by Roald Dahl

I've gotten 38 pages into Game of Thrones, and George R.R. Martin is still introducing characters. It looks like it will be a long haul. I hope I'm done with the story by the time I see him next August.

I am also currently reading:

The beginning is really dry (like the author warned it would be) but has been pretty educational in its explanation of evolutionary studies.

I didn't know there was another Creed fan here!




Have you read "Call Me"? It's from Locke and Dani Ripper (also Locke)
I recommend you read it BEFORE you read Maybe. Not totally necessary, but reading it will help when reading Maybe. There are some events that happened in Call Me that are explained in Maybe.

I will check it out. I have not read it before.

Basically I have been reading the Creed novels as they have hit. I bought his two western novels but couldn't get in the mood to read them.

The Creed series though is just a really fun read.

Just an FYI: Call Me is NOT a Creed book. It's a whole new series (hopefully). But, when you read Maybe, there are a few references to Call Me and some small things are explained. Again, you don't have to read CM before you read Maybe.

I read the first western and didn't love it, I didn't hate it either. I LOVE Locke's style of writing and so I'll always try anything he writes.
And yeah, Creed is a hoot!

I also enjoyed his How To book: How I Sold 1mil eBooks in 5 Months.
Interesting side note: he writes an entire chapter on how much he admires
Joe Paterno, wonder what he thinks of him now.
Anyway, I recommend it because it tells his story on how he got started in business and became a very successful writer much later. Very interesting.
