I finished, Stuart Woods, "Doing Hard Time" and wasn't impressed but finished it....I'm glad I got it at the Library instead of buying it, lol....And I just finished 2 by Debbie Macomber..."A Good Yarn" and "1105 Yakima Street"...Her books are always cute, easy reads....I'm really into a Patterson book now, was up 1/2 the night, just couldn't put it down......

Just got a new book from Amazon entitled Love And War by Mary Matalin and James Carville. They have been married for 24 years. She is a Republican Stratagist and he is a Democratic one. I have been fans of theirs for years. I am anxious to start reading it.

Here's another good one.....I just finished, James Patterson's, "Don't Blink" and for sure, you don't want to blink...It is very, very good....I mostly read when I go to bed and this one had my attention and I couldn't put it down.....I found 2 other books written by him and another writer and I'm hoping they are as good......

I am almost finished with this one and it is an awesome read:

The Book of God The Bible as a Novel by Walter Wangerin Jr. I am hoping to get another book by him entitled Paul.

Here's another James Patterson book that you can't put down....."Quickie" is a thriller and good right up to the end......

And one more that I just finished today, "Run for Your Life" by James Patterson, who else........Another, "good right up to the end".....Started it last night and finished it this afternoon, couldn't put it down......

Here's another one I just finished..."Shoot Him if He Runs" by Stuart Woods....It's another Stone Barringer novel and it was just OK, but I read the whole thing....
After reading Patterson, it's hard for me to get into the next book.....I need to take a trip to the Library..........

I finished reading "The Ghost Map" by Steven Johnson. It is the true story of a Cholera epidemic in London and how it changed Science, Cities and the Modern World. It was very informative and also an excellent story! I highly recommend this book.

With this nasty, cold weather, I'm catching up on my reading.....I just finished, "Black Marble" by Joseph Wambaugh....It kept my interest but nothing to write home about.....When I was about 20 pages into the book, I thought, just can't finish...It kept saying 2 female names and how much they loved each other etc. and I didn't think I wanted to go any further...BUT, it was about a lady and her female dog, named Vicky.....
I'm about to deplete my book supply so I really do have to get back to the Library.......
