  3. What are you reading at the moment?

    I'm just finishing my second Dean Koontz, "Strangers". Good, but not quite as good as the first, "From The Corner of His Eye" which I thought was excellent. I'm also dipping in and out of "Mainifesting God" by Thomas Keating....very good for my soul.

  4. Books we have not, so far

    I put a title into Amazon, following up Snowfire's mention of Holborn Bars. The architect had two brothers and a wife. One founded Price Waterhouse, one founded a still-active City solicitor practice, and his wife Elizabeth Waterhouse published (alongside much poetry) a utopian novel set a hundred...

  5. Go Set a Watchman - Harper Lee

    The world's about to get a slap across the face, apparently. Several hundred million children must have been set To Kill a Mockingbird as a school text, and suddenly their walls are about to crumble. Go Set a Watchman (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-33498594) has just gone high on...

  6. The Martian

    by Andy Weir I started it over again as soon as I finished it last night .. for bits I may have missed the first time. I only watched a little of castaway, but for any of you who saw that or read it, this is the mars version - only better. Every once in a while, you get that book that...

  7. American Sniper

    So I got this book through an audible site so that I can listen to it while doing the treadmill. figured I'd read it before seeing the movie/ Have any of you read this? Are any of you reading it? Any thoughts you like to share/discuss? I'm an Airforce mom and my inclination is generally...

  8. Biggest news since BEFORE Harry Potter!!!

    I won't be able to sleep waiting for this... I read this book as a child and then saw the movie. Tremendous impact on my outlook of folks and events from that point forward! BBC News - Harper Lee to publish Mockingbird 'sequel' (http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-31118355)

    A relatively new site that pins novel locations on Google Maps!

  10. Book Rejections

    As Dorothy Parker once said of a book: ““This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.” I’ve picked up a few that have made me feel the same way! Beginning a new book is a venture that's usually accompanied with a sense of high expectations. It’s...

  14. "Life and Death in the Miller House" Pt. I (B)

    The next few days went by in a whirlwind; a hazy, hallucinatory wind in which I strove to stand upright. I sat alone inside my mind and felt a roaring in my ears. People came and went through my house without my notice. I was lost inside my thoughts, running images of all our short time together...

  15. "Life and Death in the Miller House" Pt. II

    I took a deep breath. I had to fix it, and it wasn’t just the idea of rebooting an expensive machine, (a process that would undoubtedly be expensive too)…no, it was something else. I had a sudden feeling of responsibility, as if I’d been arrested and forgotten to arrange for a kitten to be fed. I...

  17. Elmore Leonard - Crime novelist, extraordinaire Dies at 87

    One of my favorite 20th Century writers died. Elmore Leonard wrote some of the most entertaining "Pulp Fiction" of the late 20th Century. His first book was turned into a movie. 3:10 to Yuma. Many of his books were made into movies, including Hombre, Get Shorty, Pulp Fiction, Rum Punch...

  19. "Bone Tired" by Jonathan St. Ives (Pt. II)

    (Part 2 - Continued...) He never got to fly down the Black Velvet Tunnel nebula, or see N-space from outside of a ship. If he had lived, I know he would have loved the Fountains of Irridia deep in the core of the Galaxy where there is no night and a thousand colorful suns fill the sky all day...
