re-reading Jonathan Kellerman - "Bad Love" - always a good read, both him and his wife, Faye

Ran out of books, forgot it was the 12th here - everything closed until tomorrow. :'(

I am currently finishing up the Ender's Game series by Orson Scott Card for
what is probably the 100th time (Xenocide is by far my favorite). Anyone else have that book or series that
just never gets old?

After this I'm thinking I'm going to need to go read 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey,
just to change paces a little bit.
A writer is not a liar, they just take your truths and tell it back to you in a way you can understand.

Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott. It's the sequel to her Little Men, which I've never read, but it's enjoyable. I'm also reading a book of daily meditations from the Dalai Lama and Get A Life, Then Get A Man by Jennifer Bawden. The latter isn't bad, but I'm not getting much out of it at this point. I'm not sure if it's just because I'm not in the right frame of mind or if the content isn't useful.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, and it's so boring.

I like real crime books and I read a fair few. I have always avoided the Charles Manson stories because he does creep me out. But I am reading a brilliant book about him at present. It starts from his birth and goes from there.

I'm reading 'The triumph of Katie Byrne' by Barbara Taylor Bradford. Though I saw some potholes here and there, Overall I really liked this book. The way she constructed the only crime scene was marvelous: while reading that part I really got goosebumps and I felt my heart pounding. I imagined everything she said, I wasn't just reading the book, I was there watching Katie Byron through out the book.

I've been ploughing through the 36 thick volumes of the Sixth Gospel by Libor Soural. This obscure guy makes my day, the true emperor of darkness. He goes by the dubbed Czech Hollywood Warrior Priest, heavily funny. Never heard about him ?
Pure Design, Chance, or Mistake - my own successful philosophy, ever so polished with each sale of the 36 volume Sixth Gospel.

I'm a Robert Goddard freak.  I finally got my hands on his "Dying To Tell" from 2001 (signed no less!)  Finished it last night.  Nobody does a triple (or even quadruple) double-cross like he does.

I'm reading Dubliners of James Joyce. Short stories are nice. I met many characters in that.
