As of last night, I'm reading The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton
There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Your Screenplay Sucks!

Are you reading a book by that name or are you reading my screenplay?  ;D

The Eyre Affair by Jasper Ffprde

First in a series of five or six, so far.

Takes a little while to get going but it's a hell of an inventive world Fforde has created.

Fans of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett might want to give him a try.

Also dipping into a few short story collections on a daily basis. At the moment, I alternate between Hemingway's complete short stories, 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill and an anthology titled Inferno, edited by Ellen Datlow.

THE INNOCENT MAN by John Grisham.  It's a true story about a man on death row who is, you guessed it, innocent.

Oh, I really like that one!

I just finished reading "The High King" from The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander.

About to reread The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. Then I'm still reading Gene Wolfe, and after that I've got some Jack Vance lined up. I'm really going to enjoy this month.
Never make a decision standing up.

NORTH CAROLINA DRIVERS HANDBOOK.  My license expired almost 10 years ago.  Think kind thoughts and send me good wishes, and stay far far away from the roads I might be driving in a few months.

First Lord's Fury   by Jim Butcher

Is the Codex Alera series worth a read? I've tried some of Butcher's other novels, but couldn't really get into his writing style.
