I'm in a library book group. This month's selection is "The Soloist" by Steve Lopez. A journalist documents helping a mentally ill homeless musician. It was good.

Nearing the end of ‘Next’ by Michael Crichton, I’ve started to read Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’ (for the 3rd time).  Both deal with the greed of humanity.

@ alienauthor:  I read Atlantis Found, by Clive Cussler.  Are you aware that he uses ghostwriters?  Personally, I think that strips him of his badges, but don’t know who to credit.

Books I just can’t seem to finish:
Empire Falls, by ?
Aztec, by Gary Jennings
Mexico, by James Michner
Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon
The Bible

So-ooo, I’m trying to edit my manuscript accordingly.
.........................................................................

I was inspired this a.m. by the movie ‘12’, a Russian production of the jury-room, with subscripts.  I’d give it 4 out of 5 stars.  Semi-Quote at the end, from T…?

‘The law is powerful, but what can have greater power than mercy?’

Just for fun, from search engine I found related quotes:

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
--Jimi Hendrix

Nothing emboldens sin so much as mercy. –William Shakespeare
Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge. --William Shakespeare
(Are these 2 not contradictions?)

Shall be proofreading something next week :) There is a lovelly warm feeling knowing that you hold in your hands a novel that people will not get to see for many months.
My debut novel 'Life Eternal' is now available to buy on Amazon in both paperback and kindle.
