Honestly? I thought it sucked. It was a lot of pointless words that filled up the majority of the space between the words that actually had meaning and purpose. It was the worst book by far.

Ok, so I've had no luck finding his earlier books in used stores and such, so I'll probably have to bite the bullet and go the Amazon route. Right now, I'm on "Bones of Betrayal", which follows about 6 months after the events of The Devil's Bones. Great so far. The writers really keep me interested.

I started "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis today. Through 3 of the 'letters' so far and it is very interesting. It is not terribly long, which is good because I think i'm going to need to go through it twice.

I just finished The Key to Midnight by Dean Koontz, and started Strange Highways by Dean Koontz.

I love his books.

Just finished "Carved In Bone", which was the first book in their Body Farm novels. Our local library actually had it. Good read, like the others.

Generation Me: Why Today's Young Americans are More Confident, Assertive, Entitled-- and More Miserable Than Ever Before by Jean M. Twenge, Ph.D and I just started Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, which I've heard such good things about but which intimidates me for some reason.

I just finished "Dog Days" by John Levitt. I liked it. It was somewhat like the Dresden files. But there is a dog in it......sort-of . I would read more books in this series.

And yes, I bought it b/c of the dog in the cover art. Honestly did .

Letters From Earth.

Again.

I need new reading material. Recommendations, please? Sci-Fi wins you bonus points, but anything relatively well-written and easy to get lost in would be nice. I've realized that my total lack of reading in the last few months is starting to get to me.

Read The Scent of Rain and Lightning. Not too bad actually.

And just finished Gone With the Wind again. I hadn't read it since I was about 14 and I wanted a book that would really take up my time.

You really should read The Name of the Wind! I think I've read it, oh, maybe 12 times now? One of the best written books I've ever read, bar none, and you will get lost in it from the first paragraph.
