I've just bought and will start reading tonight:


The Bookseller of Kabul
by
Anne Seierstad.

Liked the cover and grabbed it before I read any blurb. Looking forward to it.

The Dresden Files.

I'm about six books in and hooked.
Writer:  "I gave up the slave-job and I've been a self-employed writer for two months now."
Friend:  "What have you sold so far?"
Writer:  "My car, my television, the kids bicycles..."

Lots and lots of short stories. Starting with the anthologies "First Thrills" and "Best American Short Mysteries 2010." I'm learning tons about pacing and suspense.

I hardly ever read just for fun, but when I do, it's noir. I just finished Chandler's "Fairwell, my Lovely."

I wanted something short and fun, so I'm reading Morningstar by David Gemmell.

For the time being I put Dreadnought aside and am reading The Great Iron Trail by Robert W. Howard.  Scanning through the book while reading it I found this to be one heck of a read - especially for history buffs and those specializing in writing western stories.  This is what, once more, we were not taught in school -- seems we only got the good stuff -- what they didn't tell us is what went on during the years following the Civil War until May 10, 1869 makes today's politics tame by comparision.  # # #
