    Reading the most recent of Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Chronicles -- pretty bad. Time for Uhtred to hang it up, I think.

    ^^ that's too bad hearing about Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Chronicles. I really enjoyed following Uhtred, and Bernard Cornwell in general.

    ^ Oh geez...I just realized I think I'm getting my Bond villains mixed up.

    It's hard to keep them straight...especially when we live in a world filled with real Bond villains.

    I prefer Blofeld's match. His cat manners are so much funnier:

    Daisy Jones & The Six - seems to be based on the Fleetwood Mac story, told documentary style. Pretty interesting so far.

    Just finished Endurance. Edward Shackletons harrowing journey through the arctic. Really great read. Sometimes it can get a bit redundant but it was a good story.

    Collected poems of Robert Bly who was a poet long before the Iron John book and his mens' movement activities. I've always liked his work, and he's not so much liked mine, but some amazing efforts here, one of my favorites, "Teeth Mother Naked At Last."

    Wow, a bunch of intellectuals in this place. I feel like a moron reading my cheap fiction. Finished the latest Greg Illes novel, Cemetery Road. Absolutely awesome book! One of those you marathon read getting to the end to see what's going to happen but regretting that it has to end at the same time. One of the 10 best books I've ever read among thousands. Highly recommended.

    Sorry to interrupt all you brainiacs reading to actually gain knowledge or to learn something useful. Back to you regularly scheduled programming.

    @hoosierpipeguy: I have "Cemetery Road" cued up in my Kindle. Have you read the trilogy of Natchez Burning?
