    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.

    I've lost my enjoyment for Koontz ever since he started making all his protagonists sickeningly sweet and saintly. The one he wrote about the dog that was not only incredibly intelligent (which is a standard trope in every one of his books) but was also *SPOILER* an angel really left a bad taste in my mouth. His old stuff was amazing... "Watchers" is still one of my favorites and I really enjoyed "Lightning" as well but he's lost his edge and basically writes the same thing over and over again.

    I've got a couple of Kindle books I'm reading off and on but I just can't seem to get too enthused with anything lately. The last book I read that I couldn't put down was "The Hunger Games".

    Bloody Trotsky's bloody autobiography and my word it's taking a long time to get where it's going.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Bloody Trotsky sounds like a Kentucky Derby winner.

    I keep thinking if I have to read one more page of bragging about Brest Litovsk I'll spit, at which point I put the book down. My word he does go on.

    I'm about a quarter of the way through "The Prayer Room" by Shanthi Sekaran. I saw a write-up on it in a magazine about a year ago, bought it and finally settled down with it last week.

    The last book I finished was "A Reliable Wife" by Robert Goolrick. It was a good story with many twists and turns and it made for a good read.

    Actually, "Bloody Trotsky" is going to be my next excuse when I call in sick.

    So you'll get a super-literate FBI agent at your door? They're the worst sort.

    Maybe I'll just stick with "Hershey squirts."
