Latest Grisham novel. Reasonable but a bit slow as many Grisham novels have been recently. He's in danger of moving out of my "Buy As Soon As Published" list.

Gravity by Tess Gerritsen. I thought this was the book the movie was based on, but it's not. This is quite different and much better! I'd read some of her other books, like the ones that the Rizzoli and Isles TV series were based on.

Those must be fantastic!
They are quite good, if you like the outdoors. I can see how to some they may be boring, but for those of us who like to be out there it is basically a portal into paradise. I also spent a lot of time Caribou hunting in that area in my youth, so being familiar with the territory probably makes it more interesting, IDK.

They are all available from Alaska Geographic, and I'm sure his more famous one (One Man's Wilderness) is probably findable elsewhere for cheaper. But honestly I am enjoying the second volume (1974-1980) more than I did OMW. They have a few of his DVD's as well.

I need to check them out. I've watched Alone in the Wilderness many times. Love that his cabin has been preserved.

Just finished "The Man in Back" and have a couple of Nero Wolfe mysteries going along with Krauthammer's "Things That Matter" for the third time.

The Institute by Stephen King. Can't remember the last time I read a book from him. Was looking for a scare, but it's more thriller than scary at the half way mark. Might abandon it for something more interesting.

Well, yes, what they do to the kids is deeply disturbing. Horror, for sure. I also have a kid, but so far, managed to keep it separated. There's just some kind of distance in the book for me that keeps it from coming home.

I guess I was looking for something that might make me think twice about sleeping with my widow open. This isn't doing it. I rarely read horror though, so I missed the mark on what I felt like getting, which was looking over my shoulder at shadows in the night and nearly pissing my pants.
