I am currently reading Stephen King's Song Of Susannah. The series is pretty good about tying in other King books, but this one is starting to get silly about it.


Yeah the series definitely went in a weird direction with that one. I really loved the series but I think it peaked with Wolves of the Calla.

I just finished Tokyo Vice, the book that cheapy mentioned reading on his kindle on the last podcast. it's the story of a jewish american who worked as a reporter for a japanese newspaper and his coverage of murders, the sex trade and the yakuza. it was very interesting.

Im reading "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius." So far, not at all what I expected but pretty enjoyable. I thought for some reason it would be much funnier.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Finished Carnifex by Tom Kratman the other night and am continuing my re-read of the Wheel of Time.
Carnifex was quite good. If you like right-wing military sci-fi, check it out.

Finished Spartan Gold. It was good for anyone that's looking for a fun, easy read. I guess they call that beach reading?

Anywho, I'm on to Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.

Just finished Lamb by Christopher Moore. Hysterical. Now it's on to Das Energi by Paul Williams. Looks to be a short read.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

In October I read:

The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

I enjoyed all 3, but holy shit Of Mice and Men was incredible.

This month I'll be working through more Steinbeck to amuse myself.

Required reading for any hoops fan in my opinion. I love the constant blow jokes when he talks about the seventies. Also the Russell Chamberlain chapter is great

Just finished His Excellence: George Washington by Joseph Ellis. Solid biography. A bit short and lacking in details compared to say David McCulloughs work, but still a good read.

Up next, some lighter fare. The Ghost King by R.A. Salvatore.

Just finished a couple recently.

The Ghost King- R.A. Salvatore. Enjoyed it. One of the better recent books in his long running series. Though this Transitions trilogy was kind of odd in that it wasn't really a trilogy as the books were complete stand alone stories.


The Road-Cormac McCarthy. I didn't care for it that much. An easy read, and entertaining at times. But beyond painting a pretty vivid picture of struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, it didn't have much going for it. Not a whole lot happens, I didn't like the writing style, lack of chapters etc.

Not sure what I'll read next. Have a bunch of samples on the Kindle to pick from.

Got about 60 pages into Jack the Bodiless by Julian May. Put it down, didnt like it. Even though it said it was book one of a series, appearently I need to read the other trilogies first to understand what's going on.

Started Heirs of Earth by Dix/Willams - last book in the series. really enjoying it.
