Book thread - post your most recent read here
Curious about the reading habits of the members. Let's see if this thread lasts. When you have completed a book, post it here if you care to share, along with any thoughts. I'll start with the last several books I've read:
1) No Country for Old Men - by Cormac McCarthy (Kindle) After seeing the movie I was expecting something along the lines of "Blood Meridian."* All in all a satisfying read.
2) Wool Omnibus & First Shift - Hugh Howrey - (Kindle) I'll count these two as one read. Howrey is a self-publishing phenom on the Kindle. Wool Omnibus reads like a Sci-Fi classic. Enjoyed it immensely.
Next candidates on my list:
Maybe one of William Kennedy's Albany novels**; maybe The Orchard Keeper by McCarthy; or maybe the latest Zombie/Vampire fiction (I like "beach books" too, and Cronin's "The Twelve" will be on my Kindle when it is released in October, as will the latest in Bourne's Day By Day Armageddon series). I'll post again when I've read something.
* I'll admit that there were many passages in Blood Meridian that I did not understand, I'm not going to try to fake it.
** I only have these in paperback! ugh. How did I manage before Kindle?
